              The house is located in a secluded part of the island. There is a private tennis court and beach, but Shelter Island is small enough to get anywhere on the island within ten minutes, and close enough to the Hamptons and North Fork to get anywhere in a half hour.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1961

              About: My name is Doreen Wieder, and I have owned the property with my husband since the early 1960's.

              Why Shelter Island:
              We bought the land, and built the house in 1961 as a great summer vacation property, close enough to New York City, but a great getaway. Shelter Island is truly a unique and beautiful place for a vacation. There is plenty to do, both intellectually and just plain fun! Art events, library events, great dining, and many off island activites that are close. Also if you seek it, peace and tranquility in the desirable Shorewood section of the island, where the house is located.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Benefits are the recreation, culture and restaurants of Shelter Island. There is a lot of tennis, many beautiful public beaches, one five minutes away. There are two golf courses, kayak rentals, fishing, a big nature preserve (Nature Conservancy Mashomack) with 4 hiking trails, and a lot of biking! If you like the fine arts, there are many artistic events in the many island galleries throughout the summer and year. There is the Perlman Center, a high level classical music camp for string players that offers concerts and open master classes free to the public. There is a fabulous public library with many child and senior activities. There are many fine restaurants on the island. There is close proximity to off island activities in Greenport and the north shore, where there are many vineyards that have events, or the south shore, near Sag Harbor and the Hamptons.
