4 Bay Crest
Huntington Bay, NY

4 Bay Crest is one of the original “Bay Crest Beach” villas built during the turn-of-the-19th century. The intent of the original builders was to offer well-heeled city residents a pastoral reprieve only a stone's throw from the Long Island Sound. Within the gates of Bay Crest, each Victorian home was built on an acre or more of property, had north facing front porches and main entrances affording views of Huntington Bay. In addition the homes had wood floors, multiple over-sized windows, wood-burning fireplaces, two staircases, principal rooms of scale, detached barns (garages) and deeded beach and mooring rights to Bay Crest Association.
The beauty of 4 Bay Crest rests in its location, its water views (from the 2nd and 3rd floors), the delivery of generous rooms, its multiple bedrooms and a separate artist studio and separate cottage.
The eat-in kitchen has generous cabinetry, a gas range, ample marble counter space and direct access to the dining room. There is an adjoining breakfast area with the powder room/laundry room tucked away.
The family room has wood floors, a built-in window seat, direct access to a bluestone patio as well as double doors to the yard. There is a large closet that houses a separate Weil McLain boiler and hot water tank for a portion of the house including the artist’s studio.
True to many Bay Crest homes, the substantial dining room is accessed by way of a galley door from the EIK. High ceilings, large windows, parquet floors and decorative built-ins for fine dish ware are some of the room’s highlights. The dining room flows directly into the living room, also with over-sized windows, beautiful natural light, a wood-burning fireplace, wood floors, high ceilings and direct porch access with sweeping views of the front yard.
The main staircase leads to a generous second floor landing with wood floors, linen closets and a full hall bathroom. There are three bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The primary bedroom has a wood burning fireplace, great natural light, wood floors beneath the carpeting and three closets. The 2nd bedroom is ensuite with wood floors, a large closet, two windows and direct access to the artist’s studio.
The studio has soaring ceilings, wood floors, counter space with sink and cabinets, a large closet and an expansive glass window, in addition to the other multiple windows, that drench this room in natural light. This area also has a private staircase to the first floor.
The third bedroom has wood floors, multiple windows and a closet.
There are two additional bedrooms on the third floor, both with wood floors, windows and closets. The views afforded from one of the third-floor bedrooms, are glorious. Servicing both bedrooms is a spacious full hall bathroom with a claw foot tub.
The basement is full, unfinished with utilities, storage and Bilco doors.
The separate cottage at the rear of the property has wood floors. The possibilities here are endless. There is a one-car detached garage with considerable storage space above.
The full acre property is downright dreamy with mature trees, flowering bushes and a lush, verdant lawn.
Down the road from 4 Bay Crest is Bay Crest Association beach, with cabanas, two covered pavilions, bathrooms, shower, seasonal lifeguards and a certified summer program for children up to 12.
With over 80 members (some members are restricted deed owners, others not) the association is home to a beach-centric community with a vibrant social calendar.*
Bay Crest residents have mandatory annual of $2800/year that include deeded beach and mooring rights.
