House of the Week: Live life on the bay in Bellport Village

dream-HOW-1_bellport

You’d be hard pressed to find better living on Long Island than with this gem of a dream home in Bellport Village.

It’s got a bulkhead-free, sandy beach — somewhat rare for the bayfront — and if saltwater is not your thing, relax in the heated pool and jacuzzi. There’s also a cabana and pool house.

Then there’s the gym, sauna, steam room, cinema room, and a full eight bedrooms and 8 1/2 baths.

There’s even space enough in the garages for a whopping 10 cars. 

That means this is great place for showing off to plenty of company. The asking price is just under $8 million to live out your Gatsby fantasies, South Shore-style, on 1.8 acres.

“It has all the amenities anyone would want,” said Mark Petheram of Old Purchase Properties. “It’s got all the bells and whistles; you name it.”

Most notable about the listing is the beach and the boat dock, he said, thanks mostly to the calm waters of what’s called Bellport Cove.

“It’s like your own private marina,” Petheram said, noting Ho-Hum Beach is just a minutes-long boat ride across the bay.

He also mentioned that, unlike with some Bellport Village properties that might date back to another century, this Point Road home was built relatively recently, in 1989.

“That makes it easy,” he said. “This home is pretty much turn-key.

“Just hang your paintings and and enjoy the beach.”
