About Bellport House

A Weekend Retreat on Long Island

Nestled on the south shore of Long Island, this weekend home serves as a vibrant social hub for the owner, his family, and a host of friends and guests escaping the hustle and bustle of New York City. Furthermore, the heart of this home—the Entry, Living, Dining, and Kitchen—buzzes with social interactions.

Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Living

Large sliding glass doors transform the central core, effortlessly merging the indoors with the outdoors. This design encourages guests to flow freely between the two, enhancing the connection with nature. Meanwhile, the surrounding pool, waterfront, and diverse landscapes offer a variety of settings for different activities. As the day progresses, guests can wander, experiencing the unique ambiance of morning, afternoon, sunset, and evening.

Diverse Landscapes and Stories

Spanning over 2 acres (approximately 0.81 hectares), the property boasts manicured lawns, vegetable gardens, wild landscapes, towering old-growth trees, and a rich variety of forest undergrowth. Glass sliding door breezeways dot the residence, creating seamless transitions between landscapes, reminiscent of moving through scenes in a film. This design invites guests to craft their own narratives as they explore at their own pace or simply pause to enjoy the unfolding vistas.

In essence, this Long Island retreat offers an immersive experience where architecture and nature coalesce, inviting visitors to create lasting memories amidst its tranquil beauty.
