About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bath, Pool, 2 Acres, Secluded, Walk To Sandy Beach

Located on Shelter Island, NY down a quiet lane within walking distance of Wades Beach and the Nature Conservancy's Mashomack preserve. This impeccably maintained hilltop traditional, reminiscent of a European country home, is situated on 2 acres with views of shimmering ponds and meadows. Entering the front foyer, your eye will be drawn to the Brazilian walnut floors and vaulted ceilings of cedar, accented with custom fir and surrounded by oversized windows allowing an abundance of sunlight into all rooms. The first floor offers a Mediterranean style kitchen with Terra cotta floors and custom maple cabinets with tumbled marble back splash. A small office is off the entry hall as is a full bath. The living room is the centerpiece, with a sunny spaciousness living and dining areas separated with a grand 24-foot double-sided fieldstone gas fireplace. Three bedrooms are upstairs, along with a common hallway full bath and en-suite master bath. French doors from the living room lead to an 870-foot mahogany deck with electronic awning and outfitted with a BBQ and large outdoor dining table. Perfect for entertaining. The generously sized and landscaped heated Gunite pool has a slate patio and waterfall, along with an outdoor shower. Just off the back deck is the carriage house which features a guest room with cherry wood floors, central air and cathedral ceilings. The carriage house does not have its own bathroom, guests use the full bathroom on the first floor of the main house. There are a total of 2 garage bays available for the renter's use.

Area: A three-minute ride on the South Ferry takes you to Sag Harbor and the Hamptons, with its restaurants, movie theaters, fashion boutiques and beaches. A 10-minute ride on the North Ferry takes you to the North Fork, known for its rolling wine country and quaint towns including Greenport with its restored 1920's Merry-Go-Round, shopping, and Tall Ships. Stop by one of the many roadside farmer market stands for fresh local produce, etc.

Car: Recommended

The home is within walking distance of Wades Beach and the Nature Conservatory's Mashomack preserve for hiking, etc. It is located very close to Shelter Island township, boat marina, etc. Shelter island is a beautiful island within a few minute ferry ride of the Hamptons and the North Shore wine region. It is a perfect place for sailing, boating, bike riding, swimming, hiking, wonderful fresh produce and seafood, etc.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We fell in love with Shelter Island when we first visited. It has the perfect mix of nature, wonderful food and outdoor activities. It is a short ferry ride from the Hamptons and Sag Harbor.

Why the Owner Chose Shelter Island, NY, USA:
The location of this home is perfect. It is down a quiet tree covered lane with ponds. We love being able to walk to Wades Beach and to the Nature Conservatory's Mashomack Preserve. The home has beautiful wood work and high vaulting ceilings. It is a perfect getaway with plenty of room for friends and family to join.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
We instantly loved the large grass lawn and pool, as well as the wrap around deck, which gives plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing. The Brazilian Walnut floors throughout the house and gorgeous.
