Perched on the Edge of the Land, an Unpretentious North Sea Beach House


Endless views from every part of this compact house, sited where Wooleys Pond empties into Peconic Bay. There’s 0.56 of an acre of land with 373 feet of waterfront. The house is simple, perfect for a beach house, with particularly nice millwork, including an adorable nautical bunkroom. Steel framing with hurricane resistant windows mean that the new owners don’t have to worry about storms.

There’s 1900 square feet in all, including three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, perfect for a small family or couple. Of course there are plenty of decks for lazy summer afternoons with a Pimm’s. Asking price for the property, which is represented by Pat Petrillo at Sotheby’s, is $3.95 million. Whether that’s reasonable or not, we can’t say: the property is sui generis.
