With a population of around 2,000 people, the centuries-old fishing village of Greenport, Long Island, offers a much slower pace of life than the bustling streets of nearby New York City. A new listing in the area was once a communal laundromat before American film director Clay Weiner converted it into a Tribeca-style live/work studio several years ago.
Measuring 4,400 square feet in total, the converted space features original details such as wide-plank hardwood floors and exposed trusses. The lower level offers a massive studio space with soaring 14-foot ceilings, and the upper floor is bathed in natural light thanks to a partial glass roof. Connecting it all is an open layout and large outdoor deck for entertaining.
Also included in the listing is a neighboring cottage, which could be used as a guest house, rental unit, or additional workspace. Keep scrolling to see more of both properties, together listed for $1,295,000.
511 Carpenter Street in Greenport, New York, is currently listed for $1,295,000 by Bridget Elkin of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty.
