This pale blue Italianate Victorian-style confection of a seven-bedroom North Fork mansion might fit right in at Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A., but the 10,000-square-foot home’s stylized interiors and carefully groomed grounds make it look like a really fun place to live. After all, how many East End estates boast an indoor pool with a twisty water park slide? And if it looks a little bit like Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House–there’s a reason for that, too. Asking $4,750,000, the home on nine acres of tidal pond at 13555 New Suffolk Avenue in Cutchogue may be filled with whimsy, but the included sugar sand beach across the street is a serious treasure.
This unique property is situated on West Creek with deeded rights to a sandy beach just a few steps away. It’s also a stone’s throw from the North Fork Country Club.
Past the lemonade-ready front porch, the home’s main floor offers rooms for entertaining guests, working, reading or just enjoying life. Bright colors, touchable textures and fun flourishes contrast with natural wood and stone at every turn.
A massive country-luxe kitchen is perfectly appointed for a hoedown for hundreds or an intimate family supper. A formal dining room is a rare oasis of pared-back style. A cozy den with a fireplace offers a warm welcome in any season.
Upstairs are seven ensuite bedrooms. A sumptuous primary suite boasts a balcony (as do some other bedrooms) and a luxurious bath.
Cool and quirky kids’ rooms offer a riot of color, like this raspberry-and-robin’s-egg roost with a balcony and bath.
Who wouldn’t look forward to family day in a 32-foot indoor pool with a water park slide and hot tub? A huge, stone-clad outdoor fireplace provides warmth and a great spot to gather. Across the street is a deeded spot on the beach.
The surrounding property offers classic East End distractions like fishing on West Creek, clamming and kayaking, with several marinas nearby. The estate works perfectly as as a family compound–or a bed and breakfast venture.
The current owners of this well-loved dream home have equally fabulous dreams in the world of country music. The family includes three siblings whose modern country band, Audawind, is navigating the music biz in Nashville–and it’s a long commute from Cutchogue even for the most dedicated of families.
