This ranch in Sands Point overlooking the Long Island Sound has more than 300 feet of private beachfront. It is listed for $12.5 million.
The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home on 2.14 acres features numerous glass walls.
“The waterfront location is spectacular. It totally separates you from suburbia into a beachfront oasis,” says listing agent Diane Goetze of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. She is co-listing with Nava Mitnick.
A circular driveway of crushed stone lined with evergreen plantings leads to a slatted-wood entrance. Before reaching the home, visitors walk through a covered atrium with plantings and water views.
“It pulls you toward the water with this beautiful approach,” Mitnick says of the approximately 3,000-square-foot residence.
Most of the principal rooms, including the kitchen, dining room, living room and library, are designed to face the water. A hallway leads to a family room overlooking the atrium, and the master bedroom has direct water and pool views. Natural wood cathedral ceilings are found throughout the home.
Limestone accents tie indoors and outdoors together; interior accents include a dual-sided limestone fireplace in the dining room.
Outdoors, a limestone patio offers 180-degree views, an in-ground pool, a gazebo, lounging space and a brick path from the patio to the beach. At low tide, boulders appear to the east, where birds often perch.
