Classic Shelter Island Harborfront with Tennis and Pool
Tucked off a quiet lane on 1.82+/- acres on Little Ram Island an estate section on Shelter Island, this shingled traditional, designed by renowned architect Eugene Futterman, is reminiscent of classic Hamptons waterfront homes. Once owned by John A. Gambling, who was famous for the longest running radio show in the New York area, “Rambling with Gambing”, there is 185 feet of shoreline with a spit of sandy beach on Coecles Harbor, with panoramic vistas from nearly every room in the home. A meandering driveway wends around a 60′ x 120′ ft. tennis court and a 20′ x 40′ gunite pool with water views to the front entrance of the home. The entry foyer has water views through the formal living room, which offers a wood-burning fireplace, coffered ceilings, wet bar and built-in cabinetry for media. The formal dining room has a 359+/- sq. ft. screened porch and is adjacent to a wonderful cook’s kitchen with center island and above standard appliances, laundry room and powder room. There is a first floor en-suite bedroom with dressing area and whimsical vintage wallpaper. The second floor has two fully contained suites. The master suite has a library and fireplace, 167+/- sq. ft. water view deck, spa-like bath, and covered balcony with lounging hammock. The a guest suite is comprised of two bedrooms and hallway bath. Within the gardens surrounding the pool, there is a 611+/- sq. ft. guest house with lounge area, full bath and two bonus rooms. The approximately 70 ft. long dock is well equipped, a delight to the boater in the household, with easy access to open waters.
