Tasteful and stylish 3.5 Brdrm/2 full bath house in Fire Island for WEEKLY rentals. Airy living room/dining area opens onto huge secluded deck garden with hot tub & heated swimming pool. Spa ambiance with haute-bohemian decor & professional lighting at night. Entire deck facing wall is sliding glass. The house faces south, so deck gets light all day long.

This Horace Gifford house is an architectural gem on the West end of the Pines. Located on a quiet, private, forested boardwalk, only minutes from the beach or the harbor; also just a short walk to Cherry Grove. Our walkway is one of the most beautiful on the island and is where Greta Garbo, Egon von Furstenberg and other celebrities owned houses in the 70s heydey. Beautifully furnished (Frank Gehry chairs in the dining room) with tasteful private art collection and studio lighting. The entire North wall is sliding glass doors with bedroom blackout shades that open onto a well-curated deck garden (year round flowering plants, water lilies, etc) with a heated swimming pool and hot tub. The entire property is surrounded by thick shrubs and trees for privacy and seclusion. Two bedrooms open onto the back deck; the two front facing bedrooms have floor to ceiling garden atriums with blackout curtains. One owner is a chef hobbyist, so the kitchen is fully stocked with kitchen appliances and cookware. There is a large gas grill on the deck as well. The house has amazing cross ventilation with sliding doors on both sides and ceiling fans in all rooms, and there is a fireplace for chilly nights. Indoor/Outdoor speaker system for playing music. There is one king-sized bed, two queen-sized beds, and a full-sized futon in the half bedroom. Two of the bedrooms have brand new flat screen TVs with DirectTV. Each bathroom has one indoor shower and one outdoor shower surrounded with a 10 ft. high privacy wall. This is available for WEEKLY (Fri-Fri) rentals only.
Please note that the house was built in 1957 and that I kept 100 % of its architectural integrity . It's perfectly maintained as much as u can maintain a wooden house from 1957 . If u are looking for something where everything's works like in à miami condo , pkease dont book this house . It's a old gem and has to be treated and considered as such .
The beach, the forest, the harbor.
