          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: I live in NYC and work for a travel magazine. I travel for work a lot and love design and art.

          Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island:
          Shelter Island is a special place. It's a little more relaxed than the Hamptons.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Getting on the South Ferry (only 4 mins) from North Haven to get to the island is quite unique. The South Ferry runs every 10 minutes from 6am to midnight and until 1:45am on the weekends.
