Make your dreams of running an inn come true with this week’s Dream Home – the perfect place to host weekend visitors, family and friends alike.
Nestled on nearly half an acre in Peconic, this week’s historic home provides more than enough room for the entire family, with seven beds and baths, and is commercially zoned with over 4,000 square feet to make your own.
“[This home] would be ideal to turn into a bed and breakfast,” said listing agent Amanda Lin with Douglas Elliman.
Upon entering the home, you will find yourself standing in a grand hallway, complete with a wooden staircase and shiny black tile flooring. Just to your right, in the home’s first living room, the wood floor and calming blue of the walls complement the tan stone fireplace. Past the living room is a half bathroom and a downstairs bedroom with an ensuite and a fireplace. Another common area and family room, lead you outside to the back deck.
The home’s stunning formal dining room is also just off the main hallway. Take in the fantasy antique feel with the checkered black and white tile and dark marble fireplace. An open-concept kitchen with wooden cabinetry, dark green tile floors, and another fireplace are accessible from there.
“In total, there are five fireplaces,” said Lin.
Upstairs, you’ll find a total of six bedrooms, one with a fireplace and one with an ensuite. Each bedroom and bathroom stands out in its own unique way – with wooden paneling, beautiful stone wall tiles or a brick fireplace. While this home was built in 1888, renovations were completed in 2020, adding elements that allow the home to feel modern rather than dated.
“Walking into this home, you experience grandeur,” said Lin. “It’s historical – claiming to have the first working bathroom on the North Fork according to a book written by Rosalind Case Newell. It is also commercially zoned creating unlimited business opportunities.”
With the home’s original bed and breakfast status and commercial zoning, converting it back into a place for visitors to rest and relax would be a breeze.
The property is currently listed at $2,200,000.
