House proud

This home, custom built for the original owners in 1966, has had numerous updates that have given it a contemporary look while still keeping a traditional vibe. The house took inspiration from a home in Vermont and the North Fork lifestyle, making use of reclaimed wood and exposed beams. It is in a sought-after home association with access to a homeowners’ beach just two blocks away. 

What’s the plan?

The entry foyer of the two-story home leads to a sitting room with a fireplace that is a prelude to the large common rooms—the great room, dining room and kitchen. From the kitchen, one can access the large deck, which offers additional entertaining space, a bedroom, and the connecting hallway to the second portion of the house. That space features a bedroom on the first level, an open living room and kitchen with cathedral ceilings, and a full bath. The second floor houses a large ensuite bedroom and loft area in the original footprint, and an ensuite bedroom in the addition.

What’s cooking?

The newly renovated (2023) kitchen has a large ceramic farmhouse sink, open shelving, a center work island, and custom cabinetry finished with Calacatta Gold countertops. Brass hardware on the cabinetry complements the hardware on the appliance suite by Café Matte. The kitchen’s pantry is 5 x 3 and there is also a full bathroom.

What else?

The home exudes lightness throughout, thanks to multiple vaulted ceilings, skylights and double-height windows. The large driveway can accommodate five cars and there’s room in backyard for a pool.

One cool thing (or two) 

As expansion added a separate unit, which can remain connected to the original footprint and be used as a single home—as the current owner does—or the two sections can be treated as separate, independent living spaces. Approved as a legal accessory apartment, the format offers flexibility as a single home, a guest house or an income-producing rental. Each section has its own deck or patio.

Agent’s callout 

“This is a tranquil neighborhood with a beachy vibe,” says Bridget Elkin, the listing agent on the Elkin Team at Compass Realty. With minimal through traffic,  she notes, the neighborhood is more pedestrian- and child-friendly. “It’s an exceptional walk-out [Long Island] Sound beach with a really beautiful approach, where the community gathers for surf casting and bonfires.”

Location, location, location

The home is 1.6 miles from the village of Greenport and its main street of shops and dining, and site of the East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation. The Island’s End Golf & Country Club is also 1.6 miles and other recreation includes Inlet Pond County Park and the adjacent North Fork Audubon Society nature preserve 6 miles away. Moores Lane, and all of Greenport Village, is at the gateway to North Fork wine country. 


The home at 1075 Moores Lane North lists for $1,575,000 and the details can be seen here.
