Editor’s note: Today we’re expanding our coverage of destinations and vacation homes beyond Brooklyn to include a home located on the North Fork of Long Island. A version of this story originally ran in Brownstoner sister pub Behind The Hedges, which writes about real estate on the East End. Click here to see the original story.
Situated on the Peconic Bay, this East Marion, N.Y., house offers breathtaking views of the Bug Light lighthouse, Orient Harbor, Orient State Park and Shelter Island. Built in 1980, the contemporary home was renovated last year and is now on the market.
Private gates lead to the property at 12960 Main Road, which occupies .46 of an acre down a flag lot off the main drag between Orient Point and Greenport Village. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home has a newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms, and a second floor master suite with a balcony.
The main living space has an open floor plan, and hardwood floors and modern lighting throughout. There are water views from the entire room, including when you are at the kitchen sink, located in a large island.
The kitchen also offers stainless steel appliances — including a Thor professional-style stove and hood — white Shaker-style cabinetry, quartz countertops and counter seating at the island.
Just past the dining room area, in the living area, there is a gas fireplace. Glass doors open to a new Trex deck overlooking the bay with room for dining and a seating area.
All three bedrooms are located on the second floor. The master bedroom suite features sliding doors that open to another deck perched above the bay. Two of the house’s bathrooms have glass-enclosed showers.
One full bathroom is located on the first floor, just beyond the utility/storage room, where there is a washer/dryer.
Just steps away from the main deck is a rolling lawn down to the beach and stairs that provide direct water access.
There is also a newly built “she shed” for hobbies located in the front yard.
The property last sold for $775,000 in 2020, according to records. It is now listed for $2.65 million with Erica McKenzie at Andrew Stype Realty. Taxes for the North Fork property are $4,449 annually.
