Shelter Island house description

Vacation and relaxation begin on the 8 minute ferry ride to a magical island where a third of the land is a nature preserve. The house-- incredibly comfortable and relaxed --is located on West Neck Harbor. There are 6 bikes (plus 3 children's bikes), 2 kayaks and a paddleboat --as well as a hammock and chaises longues and a large deck and outdoor dining area with tables to seat 12-14

The main floor is designed for openness and easy circulation between kitchen, dining room, living room and vaulted porch--all with gorgeous views of the water and beautiful sunsets. A wood burning fireplace is a joy on cooler nights and fall weekends.

On the main floor there is a bathroom and a bedroom with a queen size bed. On the second floor is the Master Suite with a queen size bed, multiple reading nooks, a dressing room/office and a bathroom with a deep steeping tub overlooking the water, a large shower and double sinks. There are two additional bedrooms (one with queen size bed and one with bunk beds) and another bathroom.

There is a washer and dryer and children's playroom in the basement.

10 feet away is an amazing double height studio with its own bathroom, kitchenette and sleeping loft with a queen size bed and in the living room a queen size sofa bed.

When you want to tear yourself away from the house there are great restaurants--Vine Street Cafe and Sunset Beach, Cinemas in Sag Harbor and Greenport, fantastic walks on Wades Beach and Mishomak Nature Preserve and astonishing music at the Perleman Music Camp with frequent concerts by some of the most gifted young musicians in the world.

                      Location

                      One third of Shelter Island is devoted to an extraordinary Nature Preserve, with wonderful trails for hiking.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: We are a couple in our 60's, deeply involved in the arts, multilingual and multicultural. We divide our time between New York and Paris. Our passions are music, particularly opera, contemporary art and architecture, theatre, sailing and skiing.

                      Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island:
                      It is close to the Hamptons but far more relaxed. Life on the island has a different rhythm. It is a welcoming place where our children, grandchildren, dogs, friends and happy strangers want to come. There is a sense of well being that is very different from the faster paced life in New York or Paris.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      A chance to look at interesting contemporary art, an opportunity to hear young music prodigies from around the world, the joy of walking on beaches and through nature preserves, the possibility of swimming in Fresh Pond or the Bay or jumping in the Ocean. The joy of finding quiet places to read in a house full of people and a studio conducive to writing.
