Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Bellport - 31 Academy Lane

5 Bed, 4.5 Bath & Heated Outdoor Pool. Sleeps 8+. Family friendly home.

The property was originally a ranch but we added a second floor.

Downstairs in the 'adult zone' we have a mud room on entry going through to a fully stocked kitchen with dining area. We then have an open plan living/dining room with a wood burning fire.

Downstairs we also have a den with TV, DVD & Cable, then a screened porch that overlooks the backyard & swimming pool.

There is the master king bed suite with ensuite bathroom & also a guest queen bed with ensuite. There is also a separate powder room & coat closet on this level.

Out front we have a lovely cedar deck shaded by trumpet vine - a perfect place for sundowners.

Upstairs in the 'kid's zone' we have 3 further bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & a massive open plan play area with TV, DVD & cable. One bed contains a twin bunk bed, bedroom two has a twin that converts into a queen & bedroom three has a toddler bed plus a twin day bed with a trundle.

All in all the house can sleep 8 in beds & a couple of kids on pull out sofas.

In the basement we have a fully functional laundry room with washer & drier.

About Louise Vaux

We discovered Bellport by chance back in 2000 & bought a property there pretty much straight away as it was such a magical place. We lived in the city during the week but came out every weekend & vacation. Our kids grew up in the house & enjoyed the safe environs of the village. We have now been posted overseas for a few years & so offer our beautiful home to others to enjoy.

Louise Vaux purchased this house in 2001

Terrific Home for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, beautiful, well-appointed home. This is not a party house. This is a well-maintained home that is arranged just perfectly for 1-2 families with kids. Everything you might need is here. The decor is lovely. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had. The pool and back deck / yard area are especially terrific. We had some great games of frisbee catch over the pool! Town is sweet, and really perfect for a quiet getaway. Enjoy!

Perfect Family Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to know where to begin to describe how fantastic this property is! My husband and our three grown children and their families, were all very comfortable in the living spaces/bedrooms of this beautiful home. From the moment you drive up the driveway to house and see the pool and huge backyard, you just don't want to leave. The inside living areas are large and comfortable for dining, playing games, watching TV/movies or just relaxing reading a book. Our grandkids especially loved the pool and the upstairs children's play area with an abundance of toys, dress up clothes and imaginative play items. Shopping, fine dining, fantastic ice cream and a boating dock are all within walking distance of the house. There are bicycles for wonderful quiet, safe rides through the lovely village of Bellport to see more stunning homes and vistas. Would definitely stay again! The owners were very polite and easy to communicate with. All questions were quickly responded to and the entry/exit plan was smooth and well thought out. This place is a real gem!

Beautiful weekend get away from NYC

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great condition and very spacious. I rented it for a wedding I had nearby, so unfortunately did not spend that much time in the house. But I wish we had been able to spend more time there! There was a lovely kitchen and dining room, if you would want to cook. The pool was great and the perfect temperature. There were plenty of bedrooms for couples, kids, single people, etc. They were flexible with our check in time, when we ended up hitting traffic and were an hour later than expected (though we did text them from the drive). Overall, I would highly recommend and hope to come back.

This home is perfection

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable for a family get together. Immaculately maintained inside and out. Pool is simply amazing! Kids favorites included the tree swing and upstairs zone to hang out. Other than the marina, we didn't venture out much but the village looked really charming. We can't wait to plan a return visit.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thus house was perfect for us and our 3 kids. They had plenty of toys, they loved the bedrooms and the pool and best of all, the adults did too. Great location for a walk to town or to the water. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our retreat.

Bellport is a very special place - closer to the city than the Hamptons & reachable in 1 hour & 15 mins from Midtown tunnel (on a good day). Historically we turned off the LIE on a Friday just as the taillights started to glow & the Hampton's traffic jam began!

It's a small, unique village with year round residents & a thriving arts community. There are a handful of great Zagat rated restaurants within walking distance & if you want the Hampton's scene you can drive there in anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

There is an excellent public beach at Smith's Point or a smaller kid friendly beach a short walk or bike ride away.
