A recently renovated house with water views offers “a slice of paradise nestled on scenic Cold Spring Pond,” according to the listing for 39 Inlet Road East in Shinnecock Hills. Wendy Ricci of Saunders & Associates listed the house for $1.149 million.

The two-story shingled house is located on .38 of an acre, practically on the water and conveniently located between Southampton Village and Hampton Bays.

A circular driveway lined with Belgium blocks leads to the landscaped front yard with shrubbery and bluestone pavers. A covered front porch with decorative railing lends to the curb appeal of this approximately 2,500-square-foot home. Enter through the double glass front doors and buyers will be captivated by the light-filled space and water view through walls of sliding doors.

Brand new wide plank prime oak floors can be found throughout the home. A decorative feature in the living room is a fireplace surround that was redesigned during the recent renovation with mother-of-pearl mosaic tile and granite hearth. The dining room has two sides of double sliding glass doors that also let in lots of light and provide for wonderful views over a summer meal.

There is also a large kitchen that is open to a breakfast room under a vaulted ceiling. Glass sliding doors out to the deck fill the room with natural light.

There are four bedrooms and two full bathrooms with two nicely-sized bedrooms and one full bathroom on the first level. Upstairs are two more generously-sized bedrooms with water views and skylights, as well as another bathroom upstairs. Both bathrooms recently underwent major renovations and even feature LED lighted vanity mirrors.

While unusual for many waterfront homes, there is a full basement — measuring about 860 square feet — with high ceilings, providing for lots of additional space that can be tailored to the buyer’s needs. A washer and dryer are located in the basement. During the renovation, a high efficiency furnace and hot water heater were also installed there.

There is also plenty of space outside for outdoor entertaining on the new, large mahogany deck, that includes a section with a retracting cover pergola. Ricci also notes that there is room for a pool.

“A great spot if it is the beachy feel of the Hamptons you are searching for with low maintenance and conveniently located to town and ocean beaches,” Ricci says.

There’s a chance to see the house for yourself this weekend. An open house will be held on Saturday, January 23, from 12 to 2 p.m.
