Shelter Island house description

The house is a beautiful converted 110 year old barn set on a quiet private 2 acres. It is large and airy - just under 4000 square feet - with very high ceilings.

The ground floor features a large entrance hall whose ceiling opens to the peaked eaves of the roof. The living room stretches across one full end of the barn and has three sets of french doors leading out onto a 50' stone terrace, where there is an outdoor living area and large dining table and chairs. The vast chefs' kitchen has a 6 burner Viking stove, stone counter tops and 9' long antique baker's table from France that serves as an island. It also has french doors opening directly onto the terrace and outdoor eating area, where there is a teak table that seats 12. Also on the ground floor are a guest room with a queen size bed, a full bathroom with walk in shower, and a paneled library/media room with large flat screen TV.

On the second floor, three bedrooms open off of a balcony that circles the entrance. There is a large master bedroom with king-size bed, private bathroom with walk in stone tiled shower, and a balcony that overlooks the garden. Two additional bedrooms have two twin beds each and are perfect for children. The back yard is very private and filled with giant linden trees. There is a 20'x40' heated gunite pool, completely enclosed and heated. There are lounge chairs and a large market umbrella by the pool, which is landscaped with ornamental grasses and hydrangea. The house is within easy walking distance of famous Sunset beach and tennis courts.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1997

              About the owner: The owners have three children who have grown up spending summers on Shelter Island. The family splits their time between New York City and Paris, France. They bought the house when it was a barn in ruins and have lovingly restored the marvelous structure.

              Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island:
              The owner's family has been on Shelter Island for 5 generations. It is an idyllic spot, and a perfect anchor given their constant travelling.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Shelter Island is paradise, in the summer and fall months especially. The swimming - both beaches and pool - is gorgeous, you can get anywhere by bicycle, and it is safe enough that children can be independent. The island is close enough for easy day or dinner trips to the Hampton's, while staying free of the traffic and crowds that characterize the summer months there.
