The 600 square foot, queen bedroom, 1 bath guest house is now available during the off-season ....great for autumn weekends away. With interior finishings in keeping with the main house, this private, second floor, loft-like, light-filled apartment has it's own access driveway and large, southern facing deck over the treetops. With Wifi, iPod Dock, Flat Screen TV, washer/dryer, Daybed, kitchen (no d/w), and access to large outdoor shower.

The main house is a spacious, contemporary and light-filled home, located in a quiet, safe, beach community, bordering the 2000+ acre Mashomack Wildlife Preserve.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: I have had the privilege of spending time on this beautiful island since 1986. Only 2 1/2 hours from New York City and we still leave the keys in the car and the house doors unlocked! Though my career is commercial photography, I have always had a passion for designing and building homes - ever since my youth in New England, building every kind of fort or treehouse imaginable. This property is my third on the island - the first being a 1908 farmhouse and the second an 1890 Victorian in the Heights, which was successfully rented through VRBO for several seasons. This home and property were completely rebuilt from 2008 - 2011 .

                  Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island:
                  As a photographer and artist, I am sensitive to the way light moves around a house, and how the home is sited on the land. This home is deceiving - modest in appearance as you wind up the tree-lined, gravel drive - and unveils itself only upon entering, with a good vibe about the house and property. A friend has called the house's style 'pacific northwest meets mid-century modern meets zen'. That seems to sum it up - it's anything but cookie-cutter.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Contrasts: The house is surrounded by mature trees, and feels like it's in a country setting. Yet a secluded bay beach is a 5 minute walk away, with a peak of water from the living and dining rooms. The land is private, yet open. The house spacious, with good-sized, well-proportioned rooms, yet one doesn't get lost in the caverns of contemporary great rooms. An eclectic mix of comfortable furnishings, from antique to modern, low to high-end....neat but not precious. Closets, dressers, and bathroom cabinets are empty, ready for your belongings. Comfortable beds, with tempurpedic mattresses or toppers and a selection of different sleeping pillows from down to foam, firm to soft.
