Bay Front with Pool in Estate Section Shelter Island
Located adjacent to historic Westmoreland Farm on Shelter Island, this bay front traditional is one of the original properties along this vast peninsula, which at the turn of the century was gated from the public. A quiet lane provides entry to the enclave where there are long lawns leading to each home. With scenic views to elegant sunken gardens belonging to the farm on one side and panoramic north-west sunset vistas over West Neck Bay to the other, there is an immediate sense of grace and a snapshot of a simpler time when hayrides and sailing on a summer’s day were the norm. Through the double-door entry facing the water is a foyer, and to the left is the living room, spacious with expansive water views. Adjacent is the library with a raised hearth, flanked by two screened porches, a waterfront porch and the second a poolside porch. The dining area and kitchen are connected to the living room with access to the pool. The en-suite master bedroom with water views and two additional guest bedrooms with hall bath are along the southern side of the home. The second floor has two generously proportioned guest bedrooms with hallway bath. The pool and patio overlook the sunken gardens and are embraced by established plantings, including a spectacular cherry blossom tree. Watch the kayakers and sailors on shimmering West Neck Bay, or simply appreciate the stunning sunsets from the shoreline. A special offering in a unique setting! Kitchen and dining area photos have been digitally enhanced.
