Containing three “bee condos,” vegetable gardens, wildflowers and wetlands, this organic, biodynamic 1.88-acre Remsenberg estate listed for $1.995 million is a green giant on the East End, its agent says.
In addition to being environmentally friendly, those features are purpose-driven: The bees in the homemade shelter pollinate wildflowers and produce honey, and the “farmette” can produce enough to feed a family for the summer, says listing agent Dierdre DeVita of Brown Harris Stevens Real Estate.
“It’s quite extensive, and it’s a real passion of the owner,” she says.
The four-bedroom house built in 2000 has four full baths and two half-baths, a vaulted open living room, a formal dining room, and two bedrooms and a full bath on the first floor. The kitchen features high-end appliances and a large farm sink.
Upstairs, a master bedroom with a marble bath opens to a balcony. There is also a junior master suite on the level. A finished basement has a separate entrance, a fitness room, a full bath and an office. The home has central air conditioning and a two-car garage.
Grounds include a saline pool, a pool house and a tennis court. Trails through wetlands lead to a fire pit and a pond where cranes, egrets and heron at times congregate.
“You get lost in your own world,” DeVita says.
If the next owner desires, arrangements can be made to place bees in the care of a beekeeper and to tap local farmers to assist with the gardens, the listing agent adds.
