Property description

This little house was originally built in 1920, and although it has since been relocated from another part of the island and completely renovated, it still retains all the charm of its original design.

In only 800 square feet are contained a mud room, walk-in pantry, beautiful modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, two bedrooms, a spacious living room, dining area, and covered front and back porches with room for seating. The partially finished basement has a washer and dryer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am an illustrator and cartoonist, my husband is a veterinarian.

Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island:
We fell in love with Shelter Island because it is the same distance from the city as The Hamptons, but has a completely different personality--there is no trendiness, no hip parties, no high-end shopping or general ostentatious displays of wealth--just beautiful unspoiled nature, peace and quiet. Plus, a full third of the island is a nature preserve!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As city dwellers, we relish the absolute silence of the night-time on Shelter Island, and the clear skies full of bright stars. We love being able to walk to the beach, or walk into town for coffee or a meal.
