This property is, indeed, special. Not only because the home was built by the composer Douglas Moore who wrote, among other things, the operas "The Devil and Daniel Webster" and "The Ballad of Baby Doe" or that it’s still in his family 90 years later, but because the location is truly breathtaking.

It is slightly more than an acre with 150 feet of sandy beach on Peconic Bay. This south-facing property offers a view of Robins Island for your gazing pleasure and is next to three acres of protected meadowland.

“I love this unique property," says Kathleen Goggins of Lewis & Nickles Real Estate, who is co-listing the property with colleague Matthew Gillies and Suzanne Hahn of Brown Harris Stevens. "The house needs renovation, but the location is phenomenal and the protected land beside the property is like your own.”

The 3,500-square-foot home has five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two fireplaces.

It is listed for $2.495 million, with taxes of $12,302.
