Overview

About the property

Water-front Views From Every Room In The House!

Upon waking, take a stroll out to the end of the dock. Looking out over the water with a cup of fresh-brewed North Fork Roasting Co. coffee, you listen to the symphony of the birds, watch the osprey in their nest and a parade of swans and geese swim up the creek. Be at one with the birds, the water and the beach. Among the best swimming spots is the clean clear creek right in front of the house with a handsome drop-down swim ladder off the dock, equipped with plenty of water toys to relax in the summer sun - it’s like having your own salt water pool! The North Fork is known to be the sunniest places in New York State! Take advantage of the three adult-size, and one child-size Kayaks and take the family on an excursion to the white sand beach at the mouth of the creek. Jump in the hammocks and enjoy an afternoon siesta with a good book. Watch the hot steam rise above you as shower “alfresco” in the large fully enclosed bamboo outdoor shower. Overlooking the creek, your dinner on the barbecue was perhaps purchased from your visit to the local farm stands, fish markets and local pastured organic meat vendors. Toast to health and surreal moments like these with delicious vintages from over 56 local vineyards, many of which are highly rated with wine experts, pouring whites, rosés, sparkling and red varietal wines! Gather the kids around the fire pit and roast marshmallows. Gaze into the night sky from the dock and submerge yourself beneath the stars or visit the Custer Institute less than 5 minutes away and share their telescopes and passion for the night sky!

Take pleasure in this picture perfect sanctuary. Be at one with nature, the water and the beach. It’s truly an escape to a tranquil, quiet neighborhood with plenty of privacy and so much to do! Create your perfect summer routine with this precious home, centrally located on the North Fork! Explore on bicycle rides to the Greenport Brewery half a mile from the house, wineries close by, the NFAWL animal shelter, the white sand beach across the creek, Indian Neck and Nassau Point. Visit Shelter Island and the Hamptons via the ferry from Greenport without the traffic hassle.

Walk around Greenport and visit all the beautiful shops and five-star restaurants. Rent a Paddle board from OneLoveBeach (Greenport) with home delivery.

About Victoria Gordon, owner

Grown-up family of four. Spent the last 27 years on Peconic Bay enjoying the fruits and beauty of this wonderful location! As the kids grew, they're love for the water, motor boating, sailing, and having a house always full of extended family and friends, has given us a feeling of completeness! We are eager to share this little spot of Paradise with you!

Victoria Gordon, owner purchased this house in 1998
