What You'll Find Upstairs you'll find a skylit bedroom and a generous skylit bathroom with a large walk-in tile shower and two pedestal sinks. Downstairs is an oversized bedroom and bathroom with a tub. Both bathrooms have been meticulously renovated in a style consistent with this type of vintage home. We provide shampoo, soap, a hair dryer and an iron. For additional guests, the couch in the living room can accommodate a tall person and we have a single Aerobed.
The home is furnished mostly with authentic mid-century modern furniture, art books, and carefully selected accessories. The living room, dining room, office and kitchen are all bright and spacious.
The entire home's electric wiring, heating systems and plumbing is new. The home is cozy warm in the off-season. We have off-street parking and free WiFi. There is a Bosch washer and dryer under the counter in the kitchen.
What to Do
Most of all we enjoy sitting in the back yard or dining on the covered porch. Even though there are houses nearby, the yard is very private and is great for sunbathing. The surrounding trees and the mature perennial garden is home to many birds, butterflies and the occasional bunny.
Visiting without a car? You can literally walk to everything from our home: restaurants, shops, movie theater, beaches, LIRR train station, Hampton Jitney bus stop and ferry to Shelter Island and the Hamptons. Our favorite spot is the beach at the end of 4th Street, just 2 blocks from us. Watch the sailboats go by and admire the view of Shelter Island just across the bay. It's a perfect swimming beach so bring your suit. Or rent a bike in town and take the ferry over to Shelter Island. The riding there is spectacular. Very few cars, great beaches, and several cafés along the way.
Greenport is famous for Peconic Bay scallops and oysters—some are harvested right near our home. The North Fork is known for locally produced wines (40 vinyards), locally brewed beer, line-caught fish, heritage meats, free-range eggs, cheeses, mushrooms, baked goods, locally roasted coffee, heirloom tomatoes, and farm stand produce. And yes, we have artisanal cocktail bars and great shopping.
NYC restauranteurs have discovered Greenport and several new establishments are opening in 2017. An outpost of the Lower East Side's Lucky Bee will open in the Spring and Frank DeCarlo of Peasant in Nolita has signed a lease for stunning location on the dock overlooking the port. These newcomers will be joining several established dining options including the popular American Beech, Noah's and The Frisky Oyster.
Like to cook yourselves? We have an easy-to-use propane barbecue grill and a nicely equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, icemaker, dishwasher, coffee grinder, coffeemaker, and granite counters.
The neighbors keep to themselves but watch over our home as though it were their own. That's why we don't allow any large parties or events—we don't want to disturb the peace and tranquility of this tight-knit block. No smoking or pets. Quiet hours from 11pm to 7 am.
