Bay View is to Mayflower Heights as Grand View is to the East End: the dramatically situated “cottage” with a commanding bluff-side presence and a deep porch to shelter those lucky enough to enjoy this shingled aerie. Bay View was constructed in 1875. It’s one of several charming Queen Anne-style cottages composing the old Bangsville enclave, where properties rarely change hands. Bay View has been owned for more than a half century by the same family; currently in the person of Dr. Arthur Geltzer, an ophthalmologist and retinal surgeon, and his wife, Younghee Kim. A renovation in recent years by the designer Luigi Bianco included the creation of a koi pond.
