When considering the perfect home, many fall in love with its interior layout – from the way the living and dining spaces flow into one another, to the placement of the bedrooms. However, this week in our Dream Home series, we’ve found a Greenport farmhouse, with lush gardens and plenty of space to entertain, where the exterior draw in just as much – if not more – than the interior.

This house maximizes function, uniquely adding open and closed layout elements as you walk through the inside of the home. Once stepping foot inside the home, you’ll immediately be invited into the kitchen, living and dining room which all flow into one another. An additional den, office, and mudroom are located off the main living space. The bright and airy upstairs features all four bedrooms and two of the three bathrooms, including an en-suite primary bedroom.

None of the four bedrooms share a wall, meaning ultimate privacy for family or friends staying in the home. The primary bedroom also features vaulted ceilings and a walk-in closet. 

“The chic interior seamlessly blends a contemporary sensibility with historical character,” said co-listing agent Jenna Williams, a member of the Elkin team with COMPASS North Fork real estate. 

Yet, this quintessential North Fork farmhouse truly stands out with its exterior. The house, with its lightly-colored cedar shingle siding, overlooks beautiful gardens on an oversized Greenport Village lot – a rare gem in today’s market. The home was gut renovated in 2017 and is complete with brand-new plumbing, electric and insulation. 

The corner lot offers not only ample room but loads of natural light that complement not only the interior of the home but the beautiful landscaping surrounding the house as well. A perennial garden and mature crepe myrtle trees surround the front porch. Out back, a deck overlooks a large backyard and includes a built-in fire pit, an alfresco dining area and an accessory outbuilding. 

“This property is a retreat – beautifully landscaped, it creates an enchanting space perfect for entertaining a large or intimate crowd,” said Williams. “Spacious gardens bloom throughout the season. Host your guests by the custom sunken fire pit or the generous front and back porches. The accessory structure can be utilized as an outdoor bar, yoga room or office and ample room for a pool.” 

The house, located in Greenport, is perfectly situated moments from downtown. It is ideally situated within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of Main and Front Streets and less than a mile from the coveted 67 Steps Beach and Norman Klipp Marine Beach.

“Greenport Village is rightfully celebrated for its incredible charm and historical character,” said Bridget Elkin, the leading listing agent at COMPASS North Fork real estate. “Still, this home’s setting is truly magical, even when judged against the village’s best.”

The home is currently listed for $1,695,000. View the complete listing here
