The North Fork offers what is arguably one of the most up-and-coming real estate markets on Long Island. “The North Fork market dynamics have been relatively constant — supply remains low, demand is robust and prices are on the rise,” says Mariah Mills, an agent with Daniel Gale Sothebys International Realty for over 11 years.
Agents frequently see multiple offers on accurately-priced properties throughout the area, says Mills. “Our current marketplace is certainly competitive right now,” she adds. “It’s no secret it heavily favors sellers.” With that said, it’s still possible to purchase a NoFo property if one has an experienced agent working on their behalf, she says.
Rising home prices combined with limited listings, all set behind the picturesque landscape that is the East End, has created a red-hot market — and Greenport Village is no exception.
Stunning waterfront views of Peconic Bay and convenient access to Greenport’s friendly Main Street are just two advantages of any Village listing — including the Long Island HOME’s Property of the Week, at 1280 Sage Boulevard in Greenport.

This unpretentious two-story home is a “boater’s dream”, Mills says: it was completely renovated in 2015 and offers direct access to Peconic Bay. It’s the perfect option for a skimmer or other NoFo newbie or static resident who wants to live in the area, have quick access to the Bay and head over to Shelter Island or Sag Harbor by vessel.
Bobbing boats and serene blue Peconic Bay waters instantly draw the attention of any home visitor. Bright, airy spaces throughout the first floor offer 360-degree views of the nautical gem that is the Brick Cove Marina, a well-protected cove off of Southold Bay.
But the beautiful landscapes and swirling sunsets are just the tip of the iceberg. “The location is what really makes this property so special,” Mills says. There are so few homes on Sage Boulevard, making the home calming and extra secluded.
Wooden floors contrast granite surfaces in the eat-in kitchen. The room is accented with new stainless steel appliances. Brand new modern farmhouse-style furniture throughout the home is included with the sale.
An airy master suite and polished-white bathroom can be found on the main level, while two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom are upstairs. Blue decor inside the home matches the waterfront backdrop.
Greenport’s Main Street, which Mills refers to as “the hub of the North Fork”, is a quick 2.5 miles away from the home. Essentially, award-winning restaurants, shopping options, historic homes and parks, and beaches are just a stone’s throw away.
Based on the demand in the current market, Mills says she believes the listing won’t be on the market for very long.
