About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Beautiful 1960's house on 1 acre of landscaped property. House located in Shorewood, a desirable part of south Shelter Island. It is expansive and breezy, so it is always pleasant. The master bedroom is on the second floor and has a private deck, cable TV, DVD, and VCR, a ceiling fan and an air conditioner. The other two bedrooms are on the first floor, one with a DVD and cable TV. Both downstairs bedrooms have air conditioners. There is also an outdoor shower.

The house has 3 full bathrooms, one in the second floor master bedroom, one main bathroom on the first floor, and one off the screened in porch. Cathedral ceiling living room with a fireplace, ceiling fan and air conditioner, 42" flat screen TV, stereo system, big picture window with bird feeder, lots of beautiful art work, dining area off the full kitchen. A glass door entrance leads to the porch that has a dining table, the washer and dryer, the third bathroom, separate speakers from the main stereo system, and beyond that a sitting area for cocktails, conversation or silence.

For those that like to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with plentiful pots, pans and utensils, including micro wave oven, toaster oven, dish washer, oven and burners, blender, citrus juicer,

The sleeping accommodations are flexible, and the house can sleep up to eight people comfortably. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. One of the main floor bedrooms has a double bed, and the other has two twin beds. There is a foldout queen size sofa bed in the living room, and finally there are two high quality cots than can be opened and placed at the discretion of the renter to extend the sleeping to 10 people if absolutely necessary.

The patio with a big brick barbecue, but there is also a smaller Weber grill for lesser amounts of outdoor cooking. The house comes with the use of 5 bicycles, one 10 speed male, one 10 speed female, 1 three speed female, 1 one speed female and a 10 speed child female. Use of a private tennis court and beach comes with the rental, both of which are a one minute walk from the house.

The Spring & Summer will be here before you know it! The foliage is lush on Shelter Island! The nature preserve, Mashomack, is particularly lovely at that time of year. Nothing beats tennis or swimming or biking or hiking, and then a cocktail on the porch. Then grilled dinner of fresh seafood or steaks, or visit one of the many fine restaurants on the island!

Keywords: Water view house on one acre of landscaped property, cathedral ceiling living room, full kitchen with eating area, porch with dining and sitting area, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer, 2 bedrooms and small studio on first floor, master bedroom on second floor with private bath, jacuzzi and sundeck, outdoor patio with big bar barbecue, outdoor shower, 5 bicycles, use of private beach (2 minute walk) use of private tennis court (1 minute walk) This house is excellent for families that are seeking a tranquil vacation free from noisy weekend parties. It is particularly nice for families with small children because there is open space for running and playing on much of the property. There is a high chair, and jump seats for small children.

Car: Recommended

The house is located in a secluded part of the island. There is a private tennis court and beach, but Shelter Island is small enough to get anywhere on the island within ten minutes, and close enough to the Hamptons and North Fork to get anywhere in a half hour.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1961

About: My name is Doreen Wieder, and I have owned the property with my husband since the early 1960's.

Why Shorewood, Shelter Island Heights, NY, USA:
We bought the land, and built the house in 1961 as a great summer vacation property, close enough to New York City, but a great getaway. Shelter Island is truly a unique and beautiful place for a vacation. There is plenty to do, both intellectually and just plain fun! Art events, library events, great dining, and many off island activites that are close. Also if you seek it, peace and tranquility in the desirable Shorewood section of the island, where the house is located.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Benefits are the recreation, culture and restaurants of Shelter Island. There is a lot of tennis, many beautiful public beaches, one five minutes away. There are two golf courses, kayak rentals, fishing, a big nature preserve (Nature Conservancy Mashomack) with 4 hiking trails, and a lot of biking! If you like the fine arts, there are many artistic events in the many island galleries throughout the summer and year. There is the Perlman Center, a high level classical music camp for string players that offers concerts and open master classes free to the public. There is a fabulous public library with many child and senior activities. There are many fine restaurants on the island. There is close proximity to off island activities in Greenport and the north shore, where there are many vineyards that have events, or the south shore, near Sag Harbor and the Hamptons.
