This exceptional home, adorned with serene water views, was meticulously crafted by its original owners, drawing inspiration from the elegant lines and natural setting of Prairie Style and Craftsman architecture. Positioned ideally on an oversized corner lot, this magnificent 5-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom residence embodies its design philosophy through extensive use of natural materials, expansive south-facing windows, and captivating vistas of the Long Island Sound.
At its core is a vast family/living room boasting ceilings of over 10 feet, enveloped in cypress wood and anchored by a central fireplace. Complementing this open living space is a well-appointed eat-in kitchen, accompanied by abundant storage and an attached two-car garage. A stroll through the heated solarium to the charming brick patio beautifully illustrates the seamless integration between indoor and outdoor spaces. The cedar deck off the living room provides breathtaking views of Little Neck Bay's ever-changing tides, the protected marshes of Udall’s Cove Bird Sanctuary, and the tranquil gardens surrounding the property. Conveniently situated across from Memorial Field, amenities include a boat launching ramp, soccer/baseball fields, and a basketball court. All this within a 28-minute train ride to NYC (LIRR), and just 5 blocks from the Douglaston Club and Douglaston Dock. Mooring, beach, paddleboard, and kayak rights are available to Douglaston Manor Association members ($650 annually).
Please Note: Some rooms have been either virtually staged or virtually remodeled to illustrate design possibilities. Also, the 1st floor bedroom offers versatile use as an art studio, office, or gym.
