Wake up every morning to undisturbed views of the Peconic Bay and Shelter Island from this week’s Dream Home.

The home is lovingly called “Bay Dreams,” by its present owners, and for all the right reasons. Situated on nearly half an acre in Southold’s highly sought-after Reydon Shores community, this home provides spectacular seaside views year-round. 

“It surely is worthy of this title,” said listing agent Basil Boziotis of Compass. “From the winding driveway to the flow of the home and the sloping yet level property, each element draws you into the bay. There is no way to resist the charm that beckons all to indulge in some dreaming and play.”

Upon entering, you will be greeted by the lovely eat-in kitchen, which of course is surrounded by windows – offering not only dramatic views but also tons of warm natural light. The kitchen and dining room lead directly to the spacious Trex deck, perfect for entertaining and al fresco seaside meals. 

Back inside, walk through the kitchen and into the great room. Every room in the home has a view of the water, and this one is no exception. On cooler days, warm up by the fire with a grand two-story stone fireplace.  

“This home has modern features however it has been strategically renovated to preserve the historical elements of almost a hundred years ago,” said Boziotis. “The basement for instance offers a modern office, however, tucked away to the rear is a speakeasy-like family room that surely will offer a venue for friends and family to meet.”

The sunroom, which is adjacent to the great room, again delivers panoramic views of the bay. Located above the sunroom is a loft, which would be the perfect space for morning yoga. 

The first floor also contains three of the six bedrooms, including a primary suite with a full ensuite bathroom. Take the stairs to the second-floor hallway, which is half exposed in order to provide waterviews. It is here that you will the additional three bedrooms and a half bath. 

The lower level of the home serves as the ideal space to entertain with a second family room, complete with an original bar and second wood-burning fireplace, and another bathroom. Here, you’ll also find the laundry room and two storage rooms that offer great potential for a wine cellar. 

This home is the perfect blend of historical and modern, with plenty of opportunities for customization. It’s a place to make endless memories with friends and family in a beautiful setting. The home is located in the Reydon Shores neighborhood, a private community with its own beach and marina just steps away from the home itself. 

“There are not too many homes that come on the market that are situated on such a desirable piece of property,” said Boziotis. “Many homes offer water views but not so many have the perfect sandy beach and a private marina to boot.” 

It is currently listed at $3,258,000. View the complete listing here
