Historic Farmstead with Pool and Extensive Gardens
A dream come true! Like a page out of a magazine, this enchanting 1880’s Shelter Island farmhouse has been meticulously restored, and features modern amenities. Located near sandy beach, golf and Heights, this gem offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, chef’s grade kitchen with Wolf stove, Sub-zero refrigerator, granite counters, pantry, formal dining room with fireplace, screened breakfast porch, parlour, living room with built-in cabinetry and in-wall sound system, spacious master bath with ball and claw tub., and wine cellar. The grounds offer many charming nuances, such as a comfortable pool cabana with kitchenette, full bath with Waterworks appointments, loft and sitting area overlooking the elaborate gardens and Gunite pool with specially designed lap lane. The gardens are breathtaking, with a large variety of florals, herbs, vegetables and greenery, all thoughtfully arranged and set on irrigation timers, weekend home-owners and punctuated by hand-laid stone wall, steps and meditation areas. In 2006, the home was outfitted with solar panelling and new cedar roof, with an eye toward being a truly “green” farmhouse. Rarely found on Shelter Island, this farmhouse is a “must-have” for gardeners, cooks and those seeking a quintessential country farmhouse.
