Shelter Island house description

Located in what is arguably the most desirable part of the island, this house appeals to guests who are looking for clean, modern, and stylish accomodations in a picturesque setting. Huge open kitchen with Sub-zero refrigerator, DCS stove and marble breakfast counter overlooks the living area with fireplace and ceilings which reach 17 feet. Enjoy our flat-screen television and baby grand piano.

Eleven French doors throughout the house lead to two large terraces for indoor outdoor living. One terrace features a terracotta colored shade sail for comfortable mid-day dining. The other terrace has an outdoor fireplace and overlooks a gorgeous marble-lined pool with Hollywood steps. Large viewing deck (10' x 20'), shaded by stylish striped canvas curtains provide a place for friends to enjoy an iced tea or lunch while they admire your backhand on our knee-friendly tennis court. New this year we've added an outdoor bocci court!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island:
                  Shelter Island has all the appeal of the Hamptons while also offering more opportunity to disconnect from your everyday life. Reachable only by ferry (no reservations needed nor accepted, they run leave approximately every ten minutes), it's a perfect place to ride a bike. Protected by the north and south forks, it's also the idea place to sail or boat. There is a public golf course on the island as well as the Gardiner's Bay Country Club which you might have privileges with.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  If you want the room and the independence of staying in a home, without the dusty knick knacks, you'll appreciate my preference for minimalism. For those who want to keep up with their music lessons, I have a baby grand piano. In summer, the outdoor living space, including the two separate terraces and tennis gazebo make the house feel a lot larger than houses which may have more indoor square footage.
