Why Scott Murphy chose The Heights

This house was originally a boat house built in the early 1900s, which has been completely renovated and updated to today's standards yet keeps all the charm and unique features of a historic home. The house has amazing light all day long and is on the water, giving you an immediate sense of having escaped to a different time, when life moved slower. The views from the windows throughout the house all look out over the harbor, where during the summer many beautiful sailboats are docked. There is a large deck with dining table and outdoor comfy couch for sunning, but also a retractable awning provides shade when wanted. Everyone who has visited has commented on the unique character of the home and I hope you will enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

Nothing beats the location of the house, waterfront and down a small street with almost no traffic, just 3 min walk from North Ferry. There is a nice lawn for kids to play on, a private dock for you to boat/paddleboard/swim off of. Outdoor shower. Bikes. A 10 min walk to downtown Shelter Island Heights, where you will find gourmet grocery store, shops, restaurants, bars, gas station, hardware store, everything you need!

The most perfect seaside summer cottage ever

  • 5 of 5

This is the most perfect seaside summer cottage ever, hands down. Don't be confused by the casual, relaxing, and "beach shack" look in the pictures, it is incredibly high end from the linens to the endless amenities (and we are really picky, and typically stay in hotels like the Mandarin Oriental and Four Seasons when in cities). We've been visiting the cottage for years now and look forward to it every August. The owner is awesome and helpful, and all of our friends and family jockey for days and nights to visit.
