A three-bedroom, 2½-bath Cape in Cutchogue on Peconic Bay with panoramic water views and its own beach is on the market for $3.75 million.
Set on a 1.2-acre lot, the 2,250-square-foot house has an outdoor spa, 350 feet of waterfront docking, its own little sandy beach facing the bay and several large decks with cable railing.
“It has an estate feel,” said Bridget Elkin of Compass North Fork, who is co-listing the house with Eric Elkin. “Just looking out at the marshes, you see egrets and ospreys and sandpipers. In the winter, it's a beautiful landscape. It puts on a show all year.”
The open-plan home, on Beachwood Road, has cathedral ceilings, large windows facing the beach and bay views from nearly every room in the house, with sunrise and sunset exposures, Elkin said.
There are hardwood floors, and a great room off the kitchen sports built-in bookcases. The kitchen has high-end appliances, marble countertops and custom cabinetry.
Built in 1997 and completely renovated in 2012, the house is mostly cedar-shake siding, a "charming and somewhat traditional architectural style," Elkin said.
The home is part of a private beach community with an annual fee of $500 a year. The house is elevated, so flood insurance is not required, but the owners bought some for about $1,200 a year anyway, Elkin said.
For boaters, Cutchogue is well located for short trips to Sag Harbor and Shelter Island for dining or cruising.
The property is in the Mattituck-Cutchogue Union Free School District. Annual real estate taxes are $19,746.
