Greenport listing retains elements of dairy farm past
Once part of a dairy farm in the 1930s, this Greenport parcel -- now just shy of 1 acre -- retains the farmhouse, as well as a three-stall dairy barn and a separate eight-bay garage.
Since zoning is resort residential, there is an opportunity for nonresidential uses, such as a bed-and-breakfast, says Barry Novick of The Corcoran Group, who, with Nancy Cervelli, is marketing the property for $675,000.
Of course, if the new owner would like to use the property for anything other than residential, he or she would have to apply to the town for the proper permits.
The dairy barn, which is equipped with electricity, is in nice shape, Novick says, adding that he envisions it being used as an artist’s studio.
As for the garage, it would provide excellent storage space for cars or boats, he adds.
Views of the bay can be had from the two-story house, Novick says, noting it has been updated and well maintained. It’s about 1,472 square feet and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Also included are deeded beach rights to the Cleaves Point Association.
