A grand-yet-quaint, mid-19th century house is listed for sale at 2345 Main Rd. in Greenport.
David Gelston Floyd, grandson of William Floyd, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, built the house in 1827, according to the listing. Famous North Fork families, such as the Floyds and the Youngs have lived at the address.
The large, charming house resembles a Victorian cottage with period architectural details embellishing both the interior and exterior, which had yellow frame siding, white window frames and features, and dark-colored shutters.
The spacious, wrap-around porch and gazebo are two stand-out features to this 1.1-acre property, which also has a long, private driveway and green outdoor space.
This 5,000-square-foot home has a total of four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has its own second-floor balcony. There is also a sunroom on the second floor, plus a few attic spaces with slanted ceilings in the triangle-shaped corners of the home.
The home has a formal living room and formal dining room, both with fireplaces, a library, and spacious bedrooms.
The asking price is $1,850,000, not including the annual property tax of $16,130.
