A unique octagon-shaped home on Long Island’s Fire Island has hit the market for $1.775 million. Clad in cedar, the property’s shape allows for 180-degree views of the Great South Bay and two levels of wraparound decking. Located at 95 West Lighthouse Walk, the home is within Kismet, a neighborhood on the western end of the beach community and near the Fire Island Lighthouse.
While the six-bedroom, five-bath home is currently set up as a single-family home, the property could be set up as three separate units. On the first level, the octagon-shaped room holds an art room, with sliding glass doors opening out onto the deck. An outdoor hallway leads to the other wings on this level, including a workshop with laundry, two bedrooms, and an eat-in kitchen-living room combo.
On the second level, there’s an elegant great room with an eat-in kitchen, alcove dining area, and access to the second level deck. In addition to the wood-beamed ceiling, the room boasts a fireplace surrounded by marble and warm wood flooring.
The angled master bedroom has two windows and sliding glass doors with access to the outdoor balcony. At one part of the room, the ceiling height grows, meets in an octagon shape, and brings in light through small windows. The bright bathroom features a tub and a standing shower.
On this floor, there are three additional bedrooms, with one currently set up as a home office. These rooms have light wood-paneled ceilings and built-in lighting. There are also two more full baths and another laundry room.
The home sits between the Great South Bay with easy access to the Fire Island Ferry and the Kismet beachfront. This area of Fire Island is known for being more family-friendly and quieter than some other parts of the community. Along with the beach, there is also a playground, tennis courts, and two restaurants, The Kismet Inn and Surf’s Out, on the bayside.
