For those with deep pockets who aren't married to the idea that south-of-the-highway is the only option, this 5600 sq. ft. home in Northwest Woods might be worth checking out.
Set on 1.3 acres overlooking Northwest Harbor, the residence was once part of "Camp Saint Regis and is still surrounded by 600 acres of Grace Estate preserve to the north and Suffolk County Parkland to the south." It offers a total of seven bedrooms (one of which is a newly installed master suite), six bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen with ebonized oak and glass cabinets, a 40-foot-long living room, waterfront French doors running the width of the house, a library/den/playroom, a pair of fireplaces, and a two-car garage that's been transformed into an artist studio.
The property itself features mature apple, pear and dogwood trees, as well as a path leading directly to 126 ft. of beach. And if you get sick of all the "long walks, picnicking, clamming and fishing" you'll undoubtedly be taking/doing, there's an indoor gunite pool with water views.
