House Call: Amanda's Beach View

North Fork, Long Island

Name: Amanda
Location: East Marion, New York

Hi, I think this would be an interesting home to feature because it's only 2 and a half hours out of NYC. It's accessible to NYC dwellers and it is in an area which is relatively undiscovered. The house was owned for over 40 years by one family and was treated with love and affection throughout! Nothing was changed structurally, and our home is a good example of what paint and a few mix and match pieces can do. We did some painting, changed the bathrooms, insulated, and we found that only the best materials and practices had been used making the job a lot easier and less costly.

Our home is right on the beach and the views are incredible! The beaches can still be empty even in the summer! The access to Shelter Island and the South Fork is easy and the ferry ride from Orient to New London is a great way to visit New England, Maine and Rhode Island.

Thanks, Amanda!
