A 19th century Southold property listed for $733,000 is a nationally recognized haven for wildlife.
Sellers Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss have filled their 1.34 acres with native plants and grasses that attract rabbits and turtles. For this reason, the space has been certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a garden habitat.
The 1837 home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was built by William D. Cochran, known for constructing the First Universalist Church of Southold. The church was lost to a fire in 2015.
The downstairs of the house was Cochran’s carpenter shop, and the upper level was a music hall, says Weiss. “It was called the First Playhouse of Southold," she says.
The 1,700-square-foot house comes with a geothermal heating and cooling system.
The home is listed with Jill Dunbar of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
