The House has been immaculately maintained in all its original Victorian elegance complete with molded 10 foot ceiling, floor to ceiling windows throughout framing breathtaking views of sky, sunsets, trees and water and furnished with period antiques in every room. Recent improvements have included renovated private bathrooms for every bedroom, a new second zone air conditioning and heating system, an additional garden room and deck that can be made available for alfresco breakfasts and extensive landscaping to the grounds and flower gardens.
Built originally as a summer home for a wealthy New Jersey Doctor, Shorecrest retains the original beach rights with private beaches and moorings to both the Long Island Sound and the Bay, the former perfect for swimming, snorkeling and walking and the latter for fishing, sailing and water sports (Kyaks and canoes can be rented locally). These waters are still rich in fish, clams, crabs, and oysters, much prized by the many excellent local restaurants. Bird and nature lovers will enjoy the abundant wild life, hiking trails and preserves. Bicycles can be rented in several locations nearby for the more energetic wishing to do some off road exploration.
Shorecrest is also ideally located for golfers, being only a short drive from the famous Islandís End golf course, as well as for more general interest visitors. High on the list of places to visit is the nearby historic maritime village of Greenport, with its wealth of unique shops, antiquing opportunities, tall ships in the harbor for cruising the bays, many 5 star rated restaurants, wine bars and tasting rooms plus a myriad variety of entertainments and other activities. The five villages on the south road between Riverhead and Southold, besides their obvious scenic beauty, offer too a wealth of activities from historic sights, museums and even an observatory taking advantage of how dark the night skies are out here, to farm stands with the freshest produce (you can even pick your own), antiques stores, boutiques and excellent eateries.
In addition Shorecrest is the perfect place to stay for those visiting the many wineries in the area or wanting to explore the South Fork as well as the North. Ferries leave from Green port to Shelter Island and Sag Harbor, a skip and a jump from the Hamptons and Montauk, on a frequent hourly schedule. Proximity to the Orient Point Cross Island ferry also makes Shorecrest a favorite for travelers on the North East corridor from Maine, Cape Cod, Boston and Rhode Island to Connecticut.
