About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms (each with Queen-size bed), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 comfortably)
This home offers a tranquil retreat just a ferry ride away from the fast-paced life across the Bay. Enjoy the two covered outdoor dining areas for breakfast, lunch and dinner watching the wildlife on the Creek and the sunsets on the lower deck. There is also a private dock - bring your own kayak and row from Chase Creek to the Peconic Bay. The pool is surrounded by a large deck which is a flight of stairs up from the house and fully enclosed for the safety of young children. The pool deck has a covered gazebo, table and chairs for dining, a hammock and lounge chairs to relax and enjoy the sun.
Even in the 'off-season,' this home and the surrounding area offer opportunities for fun and relaxation. Curl up in the living room in front of the wood stove and enjoy reading from the extensive Leon Uris library -- yes, this was the home of Leon Uris and he wrote several of his novels here. You can also watch a movie on the DVD or listen to music. Shelter Island is a perfect place to visit in any season.

Close to the many vineyards of Long Island, a short drive to the Hamptons and Sag Harbor. Shelter Island is easy to access from the Orient Point Ferry (from New London, CT) and also close to Montauk and the Atlantic Ocean. The Tanger Mall outlets are a short drive to Riverhead and you can stop at several of the many vineyards on your way back! Greenport is just across the Bay on the North Ferry and is also a great day excursion with unique shopping experiences, great restaurants and a very popular carousel. You can easily walk to the North Ferry from the house, as well as walk to the village of Shelter Island Heights, the newly renovated Chequit Hotel and the historical Shelter Island Heights area with its unique and charming architecture.
Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: A men's fashion designer and his wife, both of whom are passionate about collecting posters and unique objects, enjoy the house year-round.
Why the Owner Chose The Heights (Shelter Island Heights, NY, USA):
Shelter Island is an understated treasure away from the Hamptons. This house is unique in that its location allows you to walk to get your morning coffee and croissant at the popular Marie Eiffel's restaurant, shop at Bliss Department Store or have a drink and/or dinner at The Dory.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can walk to the North Ferry for a day trip to Greenport or walk through the historic district of Shelter Island Heights to admire the unique and charming architecture. The newly renovated Chequit is also within walking distance for a drink on the umbrella-covered deck or dinner.
