With a name like Sunset Bluff, its safe to assume that spectacular sunsets can be viewed from this one-acre property on Hyatt Road in Southold.
On the market for $1,649,000, the seven-room traditional style home, which faces due west, overlooks the Long Island Sound across to Connecticut, says broker Julie Carnevale of North Landing Realty in Huntington.
The property, which Carnevale says has a story book setting, is accessible via a private gravel road. A gazebo at the edge of the bluff has stood there for 100 years. Its longevity is testimony to how secure the bluff is, Carnevale says, noting the gazebo has a new cedar roof. A long staircase descends to the beach. From there, one can walk to Horton Point Lighthouse.
As for the home, it was completely renovated seven years ago. Features include Andersen windows overlooking the water, skylights, wood floors and a wood-burning stove. The kitchen is designed with custom butter yellow cabinets that pop against black granite countertops. High-end appliances include a Southbend gas stove, which has six burners and an oven. A second oven is in the wall.
Of three bedrooms, the master suite, with a walk-in closet and bathroom, overlooks the Sound. One guest bedroom features a custom built-in loft bed, accessible by a wood ladder. There are a total of three bathrooms, including one with a new claw-foot tub.
Another great feature is the covered wraparound porch, which is nice for entertaining, Carnevale concludes.
