We live in Brooklyn with our two kids who have loved sailing, swimming and climbing trees in Bellport every summer. We both work in film and television. Our two terriers are also fans of Bellport and love to chase the bunnies that come out each night at dusk to nibble on the lawn.
We bought this house as an antidote to hectic city life. We loved the feeling of quiet and total privacy combined with the convenience of being right in town and near the water. We spend lots of time in the garden and love the variety of outdoor views and settings. Bellport is only an hour and 15 minutes from Manhattan, but the ocean beach on Fire Island, accessed by a private 10 min ferry for town residents, is the most unspoiled beach in the Northeast: 3 miles of National Seashore with no houses. The only way to get there is by private boat or the Bellport ferry. Even on a busy summer weekend there are no crowds.
Relax in the hammock under the 100 foot trees, pick apples and peaches in the orchard, sit in Adirondack chairs on the porch, picnic on the side deck. The golf and tennis club is right over the back fence. Stroll to the bay or into town. You'll feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but be anywhere you want (restaurants, beaches, shops, marina or library) in less that five minutes!
