Best Deals on the North Fork

Are You Ready For The Good Life? – Southold Soundfront – $1,750,000
The Goods – Stylish contemporary designer home features move-in ready living on this .75 acre lot with room for pool. 115+ feet on Long Island Sound with daily sunsets. Home features living room, dining room, eat-in-kitchen with sliders to waterside deck and master suite on first floor – plus lounge/den upstairs with additional bedrooms and bath. 2-car detached garage. Private stairs to beach below. Fully bulkheaded.

Why it’s a good deal – Listing agent Nicholas Planamento of Town & Country Real Estate says, “North Fork waterfront properties are among the best East End investments, with continued annual appreciation. Inventory remains LOW, with only 13 ‘soundfront’ listings town-wide, including all hamlets: Laurel to Orient Point (as recorded on MLS) and is the less expensive one of two homes currently marketed between $1M-$2M. At $1.750M, this premium waterfront residence offers the next owner incredible value, spacious living along with the opportunity to enjoy the good life on the North Fork without breaking the bank.”

Big Lot On A Picturesque Country Lane – $636,000
The Goods –Large, cleared parcel in Greenport which is ready for a home. Backs up to Peconic Preserve. This large acreage guarantees utter privacy; yet, is close to all beach and marine activities and Greenport Village restaurants and shops.

Why it’s a good deal – Listing broker Jill Dunbar of Douglas Elliman Real Estate says, “Buildable land is now scarce on the North Fork. This 6.6 acre piece has additional room for horses, a small farm or vineyard. Vast views south across preserve. Second-story home could have distant water views of Peconic Bay.”

Your New Escape On The North Fork – $525,000
The Goods – This 4 bedroom, 2 bath Cape Cod in Southold features an updated kitchen that opens to a living and dining area with sliders to a partially covered exterior patio.

Horton Point Lighthouse is just around the corner and the town beach is just a short walk down the road.

Why it’s a good deal – “We challenge you to find a four bedroom, two bath home that’s in move-in ready condition in this nice of a location under $600K,” says listing agent Donielle Cardinale of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Quintessential Cedar Shingled North Fork Cottage – $499,000
The Goods – Uniquely tranquil and peaceful, this recently renovated home is both beautiful and turnkey. The cottage features bright, fresh, and clean living spaces, a butcher block kitchen, three bedrooms, two baths, wide plank floors, a slipper tub, and even an outdoor shower. Just a short stroll to protected East Creek, which is perfect for kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding, this home is North Fork living at its best!

Why it’s a good deal – Listing broker Thomas McCarthy of Thomas J. McCarthy Real Estate, Inc. says, “Not only is the home in beautiful condition, but its location also is stellar. In addition to East Creek, the cottage is close to Nassau Point Beach, downtown Cutchogue, farm stands and wineries, all while being tucked on a quiet and secluded lane. Move-in ready under $500K is becoming increasingly harder to find. I am sure this home will not be on the market for long.”

Pretty Horse Farm In Aquebogue With Farm Views – $1,350,000
The Goods – Custom home with horse barn and accessory apartment on 8 acres already subdivided. 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 laundry rooms, living room with fireplace, custom kitchen, formal dining room, central vac, and hardwood floors. 2-car garage with workshop.

Why it’s a good deal – Listing agent Dolores Peterson of Colony Realty says, “This is the perfect home for a family or someone who has horses or just wants to farm. The 8 acres have already been subdivided into 2 acre lots, so you can purchase and keep all 8 acres or sell off the 2 acre lots and keep the house and the barn! Either way, it’s a great deal!”

Bay Haven Craftsman Cape Built For Modern Living – $769,999
The Goods – New construction home in the architectural character of the neighborhood with interior geared towards modern living and design. Main floor master bedroom suite for one level living or use as a den with full bath and storage behind the open living room, dining and kitchen. Located in Bay Haven Beach Community, the large screen porch tucked behind the kitchen was designed for summer entertainment. Smart home design and technology combines with a new standard in New York State heat and insulation codes enhancing your daily activities throughout the year while reducing your carbon footprint and annual energy bills.

Why it’s a good deal – Listing agent Jerry Cibulski of Century 21 Albertson Realty says, “When you look at the costs of home renovations and energy efficiency, smart money is spent on a property with technology and flexible floor plans in mind. As the years move forward, home renovations become costly with replacing windows, furnaces, roofing and add to this budget the updated kitchen and bathrooms. Roll in showers, comfort height toilets and vanities are designed to provide ease of use and safety. These homes are now built with these needs in mind and that is a good deal for all.”
