A-frame cottages are always an architectural favorite. And one on the East End sitting on over five privately located acres of land for under $1 million is definitely something we can get on board with.
The home at 24 Central Boulevard in East Quogue went on the market in September under Douglas Elliman listing agents Edward Kurosz and Susan Ribeiro for $754,000. Built in 1979, the home is just 1,716 square feet in size with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Interior features inside the updated home include pine plank flooring, stainless steel cable railings, skylights, a natural stone gas fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows. There are high ceilings throughout, and an open floor plan is utilized between the living and dining rooms to maximize the living space.
The master suite with direct outdoor access is located on the lower level of the house, while a second bedroom or loft is on the second floor. The master bathroom features a jacuzzi bathtub and a walk-in steam shower.
The downside is that the bathroom is located on the edge of the house, where the A-frame tilts inward, so we can’t imagine those mirrors would be the most flattering.
Outside, there’s a gated entrance off a private road, a wraparound deck, a patio, manicured gardens, and wooded space on the land. There’s also a pool house—with the gunite pool located inside, rather than outdoors. The pool house features its own deck, stone patio, skylights, and a wall of sliding glass doors.
Admittedly, the location isn’t considered great compared to the east-of-the-canal neighbors, and it’s not that close to the ocean, or even the bay. But for nature lovers who prioritize privacy, this East End cottage is a dream.
