Property description

This unique Kast-designed modern is located directly on Gardiner's Creek and enjoys splendid views of a historic plantation and nature galore. The house itself has an open-plan design, as well as a wall of glass doors which lead to a deck by the water. The kitchen has the latest appliances, while the upstairs bedrooms all have water views. The third floor offers a study/office/sitting room with skylights and water views. A rare find where one can commune happily with the beauty of nature including kingfishers, terrapin, migratory birds, long-legged waders, duck and geese, as well as swells of fish. Truly a tranquil home, located within easy walking distance to Shelter Island’s famous Sunset Beach and Derring Harbor.

In the warmer months you can lie in bed and hear the Baby Ospreys diving into the water learning how to catch fish. On the third floor is a very large sitting room with views of the Creek. Also a lovely self contained bedroom and en suite bathroom are found on the south side.

It is filled with a combination of slick mid century modern and contemporary furniture and great art. As parents of two small children they have been careful to make the house extremely practical.

Garden: The house’s garden was designed by the well know garden designer Lisa Stamm. A combination of Purples, Whites and graded green/grays her signature color palette is reflected in the simple but clever planting of layered foliage. Butterfly and hummingbird attracting foliage comes into its own throughout the summer. A wisteria shaded pergola dining area sits just outside the kitchen next to the vegetable garden and children’s wooden playhouse a miniature version of the main house.

The dock is plenty big enough to sit and star gaze at night in the complete and utter silence of Gardeners creek. It also has steps into the creek to provide easy access for swimming and water activities for all age groups. As the house sit across from Sylvester Manor it is an easy canoe ride away to any events happening during the season even camp for the children! All the land opposite the house is reservation so no buildings and not a human to be seen.

And for those who like to workout there is a gym with rowing machine, weights and yoga apparatus in the fully finished basement with room sized mirrors and ballet bars.

The house is situated within easy walking distance from both the Dering Harbor and Crescent Beach, and therefore many of the islands best restaurants and bars, including Sunset Beach and Reddings. As Shelter Island is an Island you are only 5 minutes bicycle ride from any of the lovely Shelter Island beaches.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are an English couple with two children, ages 5 and 3. We live in Manhattan, New York.

Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island Heights:
Shelter island is Unique place…as soon as you get on either the north or south ferry you exhale.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with our home because of the amazing waterfront location and design of the house. Although this is our second house, it is still very much our home and we spend a significant part of the year there. As such it is furnished and equipped to a level of comfort and convenience beyond that of a year-round rental property. It is truly magical listening to the frogs and cicadas at night or the ospreys dive bombing into the creek. Watching the turtle sunbathing on the rocks or lying on our dock star gazing in the middle of Gardeners creek.
