The nuts and bolts

3 bedrooms

3.5 bathrooms

3,187 square feet

.26 acres

House proud

Built in 2016, this move-right-in house offers water views on three sides, and light and airy rooms with wood details that give it a sophisticated cottage feel. 

This is very turnkey house that was very lightly used, and is pristine,” says Mariah Mills, the agent at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty representing the listing. 

What’s the plan?

Featuring an “upside down” floor plan that optimizes the water views from the common areas, two of the three ensuite bedrooms are on the lower level, along with a 240-square-foot den, powder room, the laundry and a mudroom that leads to the one-car garage. On the upper level, a combined 400 square feet includes the kitchen and living rooms in an open format with vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams, and an adjacent 208-square-foot dining room with windows on three sides. The 18 x 16-foot master bedroom suite includes an oversized bathroom and walk-in closet, and offers access to the balcony.

What’s cooking?

The 16 x 4 kitchen features subway tiles backsplash, wood cabinetry with soapstone counters, a Wolf range and GE refrigerator. The center island seats three and includes an integrated microwave. Behind a sliding board door is 40-square-foot walk-in pantry with generous storage, and a second powder room is accessed in the entry hall. 

What else?

Sitting high, the house has views of both Stirling and Greenport harbors from inside and on the mahogany waterside upper deck large enough for lounging and dining. A flagstone patio shaded by leafy trees in the back offers additional space for cookouts and dining.


Amenities and more

  • Fireplace in the living room
  • The primary bedroom’s ensuite features a large soaking tub
  • Covered porches with multiple access points

One cool thing (or two) 

With its water views, cedar-shingle siding and expansive porches, the home has a Nantucket vibe, especially from its location on Sterling Street, where the waterfront is reminiscent of a fishing village. Though this home does not have a dock or mooring space, the buyer may have the first right of refusal to rent a neighboring slip from a private owner. 


Agent’s callout 

“This is a very vibrant neighborhood in Greenport within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops,” says Mills. “But, this is positioned away from the hustle and bustle, and you can walk in and walk out [of town] very quickly.”

Location, location, location

The home is five blocks from municipal buildings such as Greenport Village Hall and the courthouse, with the town’s “restaurant row” on Front Street just beyond. Of local interest are the Mitchell Park, the site of the century-old carouselEast End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation. The Long Island Rail Road Main Line (Greenport) terminates at the station on Wiggins and Fourth streets. Farther west, 2.5 miles, is the Arshamomaque Preserve, with trails and ponds that are home to osprey and other wetland birds and wildlife.
