A rare offering to own not only one, but two completely transformed beach cottages on Dune Road has come to market. The property at 27 Dune Road in East Quogue is listed at $5.75 million with Lauren Spiegel of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
“This is the perfect opportunity for oceanfront tiny living, turnkey,” says Spiegel. “The cottages survived the 1938 hurricane and have been renovated three times since,” she said, adding the most recent renovation happened after she sold it to the current owners in 2018.
The cottages were built around 1920, according to records from the Town of Southampton. Dune Road is not shown on the historic maps of East Quogue, but “small cottages were constructed across Shinnecock Bay for use by hunters, fishermen, and boarding house guests,” the town wrote in some history of the property. The cottages are “characteristic of the unpretentious and seasonal nature of this building type.”
The attention to detail is evident and the cottages have the beachy feel you might expect. The work was done by Coastal Management. Each cottage provides a fully equipped kitchen, dining and living area with a loft above, and there are custom built-ins throughout, including bunk beds in one room.
Though they offer only a combined 1,200 square feet of living space, the cottages are airy, letting in lots of natural sunlight.
“They completely renovated the structures as is and more recently received a permit for pool in between the shacks which would complete this fabulous opportunity,” she explains.
Situated on about 0.87 of an acre, there is 75 feet of ocean frontage with ample privacy just beyond the dunes. A 360-degree unobstructed bay view across Dune Road.
The cottage that faces the bay provides three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A viewing deck offers the perfect spot for watching the sunsets. There is also an oceanside patio that leads to the other cottage.
The oceanfront cottage offers two bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths. There is plenty of outdoor entertaining space, as well.
Both cottages have all new mechanicals, and there is the added bonus of a water filtration system.
There is also an outdoor shower, a sandy sitting area, and a private walkway to the ocean.
A shed houses bicycles and the like.
Located adjacent to a town-owned landing to the west, there is nearby access for a boat.
An open house will be held on Friday, September 10, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
