Property description

Beautiful, contemporary-style bright and sunny home located on Chase Creek with western views from the spacious deck. Three of the bedrooms have westerly views of the Creek, one has a deck overlooking the Creek. The fourth bedroom is a reader's paradise, filled with books and an eastern skylight. The gunite pool can be heated, if necessary, and there is a fun slide and new outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. The house is walking distance to the Shelter Island Heights business district and historic area, and the North Ferry for a day trip to Greenport.

This home offers a tranquil retreat just a ferry ride away from the fast-paced life across the Bay. Enjoy the two covered outdoor dining areas for breakfast, lunch and dinner watching the wildlife on the Creek and the sunsets on the lower deck. There is also a private dock - bring your own kayak and row from Chase Creek to the Peconic Bay. The pool is surrounded by a large deck which is a flight of stairs up from the house and fully enclosed. The pool deck has a covered gazebo, table and chairs for dining, a hammock and lounge chairs to relax and enjoy the sun.

Even in the 'off-season,' this home and the surrounding area offer opportunities for fun and relaxation. Curl up in the living room in front of the wood stove and enjoy reading from the extensive Leon Uris library -- yes, this was the home of Leon Uris and he wrote several of his novels here. You can also watch a movie on the DVD or listen to music. Shelter Island is a perfect place to visit in any season.

Location

Car: Necessary

Close to the many vineyards of Long Island, a short drive to the Hamptons and Sag Harbor. Shelter Island is easy to access from the Orient Point Ferry (from New London, CT) and also close to Montauk and the Atlantic Ocean. The Tanger Mall outlets are a short drive to Riverhead and you can stop at several of the many vineyards on your way back! Greenport is also a great day excursion with unique shopping experiences, great restaurants and a very popular carousel.
