5+ Acres Pristine Sunset Harborfront on Shelter Island
In one family for generations, this pristine acreage on south Menantic Peninsula on West Neck Harbor was recently subdivided with thought and sensitivity, offering privacy and room for an expansive estate compound on 5.04 +/- of level acreage. Its shoreline encompasses nearly 472 feet with stunning direct sunset views, which also offer prevailing southwest breezes during the summertime. Paths that meander through the acreage allow your creativity and mind to explore countless possibilities. Established trees with high canopy include groves of copper beech trees with distinctive speckled bark. At any given time, one can hear birdsong resonating throughout the forest. Along the shoreline, long-legged wading birds fish within close proximity of those fishing from boats. The waterway is abundant in marine life, including weakfish, and offers easy access to open water, with the possibility of a dock. Located in an area where estate quality homes have recently been built, this property affords added privacy with a flag-lot entry. A scenic easement on the western side and a 10 acre reserve on the north side offer a lifetime of preserved views, within which a gazebo, boardwalk or other non-permanent structure may be sited. Presented with guided trails for clarity to its metes and bounds, this harborfront acreage needs to be visited to be fully appreciated for its unique and beautiful qualities.
