Cove Beach and planned Home Stead Farm are a haven of privacy, green thinking and organic living on the North Fork, in line with the incredible nature of this rare and gorgeous property once owned by Billy Joel & Christie Brinkley. The property originally was owned by well known local families (Trumans, Tuthills, and finally the Schelingers) In 1893 St Thomas Episcopal Church recognized the natural beauty of this incredible natural treasure and founded the St Thomas Summer home for kids from Manhattan's 60th street area, then mostly a German community. A philanthropic gift made this purchase possible. Click: The St Thomas Summer Home for boys and girls was discontinued around 1925 and the resort burned down after ownership by the Corwin, Tisdale and Swezey families, in 1938. No buildings were left - allowing the property to remain in its natural state, mostly, unlike any other land in the North Fork. The current owner made a gift of Down's Preserve to forever save part of the property as a public park. He offers the unique opportunity to own a piece of his dream by owning 2.5 acre+ lots on the Sound in ultimate private settings at the end of a 2/3 mile-long access road through preserved (future organic farm) fields. Two adjacent Sound-front lots, each of 2.65 acres appr. are now available for $2 Million, or together asking $4 Million. A super private beach and lagoon-like setting await you. A unique opportunity unlike anything else on the North Fork for the most discerning buyer. Subject to terms and conditions, covenants and restrictions available upon request by qualified buyers.
