north fork home

The “Rosemary,” a historic, bayfront home with a castle-like appearance, is listed for sale at 3345 Bay Shore Rd. in Greenport. 

The North Fork home is defined by its two rounded, pointed towers connected on either side of the house. This symmetrical design has been preserved from when the home was built in 1878. In the early 1900s, the house was moved by barge from its original location on Maple Lane to its current spot on the bay.

Views of the water, Pipes Cove, and Shelter Island are sweeping from indoors through panels of windows in the back of the house. A separate — but matching — two-car garage sits to the side of the green .37 acres and has an outdoor shower. There’s also access to a small beach and boat dock in the backyard.

“Rosemary” is 1,900 square feet of potential and ready for someone to come in and design it as their own. There are period wood floors throughout and a gas fireplace in the living room. The eat-in kitchen is small but quaint, and there’s a full basement with Bilco doors and a crawl space.

This home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is part of the Wickham Park development and situated in the Greenport school district.

The asking price is $2,200,000, not including the annual property tax of $12,703.

The real estate agents listed for the property are Beth Pike, of Islands End Real Estate, who can be reached at 631-734-8762, and Cheri Wirth, of Sound Bay Real Estate.
