Sensational direct waterfront property located in the private Tokeneke Association. This magnificent Tudor home includes 3.2 secluded acres at the end of Contentment Island with extra lot potential. A dock and tennis court make this a perfect setting to enjoy outdoor activities on Scott’s Cove and L.I. Sound. Built in 1900, the architectural integrity remains while updates have embraced its waterfront location and surrounding trees. Large picture windows, French doors, a seaside terrace and covered porch bring the outside in to this beloved home. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms, a family room and an office with a view all its own. Sea breezes fill the master suite with sitting room. A one-bedroom waterfront cottage is above the 3-car garage.
