New-to-Market Greenport Cottage 415K

HERE’S A FRESH HOT LISTING FOR YOU — it just came on the market two days ago. It’s a classic, cedar-shingled 1920s house with a farmhouse-style front porch, 4 bedrooms, wood floors throughout, and some interior details.

The house is in Greenport on Long Island’s North Fork, a great little town with a Main Street full of mom & pop stores, a vintage carousel, ice cream parlors, an Art Deco movie theater, antique shops to explore, and a few good restaurants — but Greenport’s main appeal, IMO, is that it’s made up almost exclusively of older homes.

This one seems to have a lot to recommend it, including an attractive garden and a location a block from the Peconic Bay.

On the minus side, it looks like the taxes are high and the lot is small (7,000 square feet). Still, if you’re in the market, it’s worth a look. For more info and pictures, click right here.

    Hi Cara, As always, I look forward to reading your blog regularly. Since I’m new to NYC, my husband and I recently walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and fell in love with Cobble Hill. We are also, as you may remember, looking in the North Fork for a cottage that needs some work where we may eventually live full-time. This one is darling and exactly what we’re looking for! Thank you for continuing to showcase these types of charming and unique properties. We must have a lot in common!
