A circa-1863 Bellport Village residence once owned by the son of Bellport homebuilder and ball-bearing inventor Oliver Hazard Perry Robinson is now on the market for $1.395 million.
The three-bedroom, 2 1⁄2-bath home has a “historic cottage feeling” throughout, starting with an intricately detailed front porch, says listing agent Adam Banks of Rice Realty Group.
“When you get an American flag and some red geraniums and a rocking chair, it feels great,” he says of the home, which is part of the Browns Lane Historic District.
Inside, a kitchen with an island is the “focal point of the house” and the product of a recent extension, Banks says. A window-lined en suite master bedroom was added above.
The formal living room contains a staircase with original floorboards and carved banisters. A bay window brings light into the dining room, Banks says. There are hardwood floors and central air conditioning.
A renovated two-story cottage has two bedrooms and a full bath, original staircases and floorboards, an eat-in kitchen and a screened-in porch.
Mature trees are found throughout the half-acre parcel, where there is a new 16- by 36-foot heated in-ground pool, a detached two-car garage and in-ground sprinklers. Deeded dock rights at the village marina and Fire Island’s Ho-Hum Beach are included with ownership, Banks says.
