The most spectacular 6+ acres of waterfront with magical terrain descending from Pocomo Road toward Medouie Creek. The drive winds along the beautiful vista weaving past the tennis courts and the cutting garden to the houses. The architecture of the buildings is beautifully in scale with the site and the landscape melds into the natural beauty of this incredible sanctuary. The main house is set on a wide rise of land with abounding views extending across the harbor to Coatue, Town and back along the beach to the salt marsh shoreline of the creek.
The views throughout the house look across the water in two directions. The oversized windows and doors beckon for a closer look. The oasis of the property is complimented by the topography and many faceted views with changing texture and light throughout the day. A bluestone walkway leads you to the main entrance where the foyer opens to an impressive vaulted ceiling. Oversized glass doors frame the magnificent view down harbor and the corridor to the living room draws your eye to another water horizon at the South end of the house. There are three sitting areas in this wing with views in each direction. The kitchen is opposite a great sitting area with custom sliding doors to a deck that spans the waterside of the house. A gentle sloping path at the edge of the lawn leads to the beach stairs. Off the central hall there are covered porches on both sides of the house and an expansive bluestone pool terrace. The master suite enjoys spectacular views across the harbor with a fireplace and the most idyllic bay window seat. The oversized bath transitions to a dressing room with custom built-ins to tailor the space. Off the main entry foyer there is another wing with a wonderful family room and side entry hall. The generous guest suite features another oversized bay window with knockout views and a fireplace. The side entry foyer is a good transition space with a walk-in closet and storage.
