House proud

Built by the current owners, this creek-front contemporary is privately set in the Cedar Beach Park community and offers a tranquil setting and access to the association’s private bay beach. It’s been updated, with a new kitchen and bathroom in the primary bedroom. There are water or yard views from every point in the home. 

“This is a perfect, crisp and clean house home and property that have been meticulously maintained and cared for,” says René Giacobbe, the Douglas Elliman agent listing the property,

What’s the plan?

The front entry features a natural-wood banister on the staircase, and leads to the kitchen and open format dining and living room of nearly 300 square feet, featuring built-in shelves and storage, as well as vaulted and cathedral ceilings. A large primary bedroom (212 square feet) is ensuite with a walk-in cedar closet. A half bath and the laundry room are accessed in the front hallway and the attached garage is accessed through the laundry room. The second floor is dedicated to a second primary bedroom suite of the same size as the ground floor bedroom, and features a small balcony, large enough for a chair. The second guest room is 141 square feet. The large, newly renovated bathroom includes a glass shower stall and soaking tub and is accessed through both the hallway and the primary bedroom.

What’s cooking?

The 136-square-foot kitchen was completely updated last year and features custom cabinetry topped with Quartz countertops, a Wolf range, Bosch refrigerator and Blomberg dishwasher. There’s a corner pantry nest to the fridge integrated in the wall and a bright 3-paned window above the sink.

One cool thing (or two) 

The home owns 87.8 feet on Cedar Creek, which flows to the Peconic Bay, and enough mooring space on the dock for a small engine boat, or a kayak, canoe or paddleboard. The backyard is very private and offers plantings, yard space and a flagstone patio and firepit near the dock.


Agent’s callout 

“This is a true place of refuge. filled with natural light and great energy,” Giacobbe says. “It’s like a nature preserve with wildlife and birds.”
