Shelter Island Estate with Sound Front Dock and Cabana
Oriole Farm is one of the largest, most prestigious historic estates in the coveted Shelter Island community of Dering Harbor Village. Set on 16+/- acres of manicured lawns and nestled behind more than a quarter mile of century-old copper beech hedge, the property boasts numerous statuesque specimen trees. The Barnes Coy designed home blends quality craftsmanship, vintage references, and state of the art systems. The property was once the site of a private arboretum, gardens, and orchard owned by the family of Alice Fiske, the celebrated horticulturist of Shelter Island’s first plantation, Sylvester Manor. Today, the spacious residence showcasing double-height ceilings and five fireplaces offers a flowing layout with scenic estate views. Originally constructed by Lord & Burnham, the greenhouse at Oriole Farm has been meticulously restored and sits near an alee of ancient weeping beech trees nearly 40 feet high. Currently serving as a pool cabana, occasional dinners are hosted here under the stars. The 55′ gunite pool with hot tub and lounge area offers space for leisure and outdoor entertaining adjacent to a Zen garden with flowering shrubs, yoga patch, and outdoor shower. Note that the seller will retain the barn and approximately 1.5 acres of the deeded 7.67 acres on which it stands under a license or other instrument. For the boater, adjacent to the estate is a shared 300′ deep water dock equipped with a 14,000 pound boat lift. Its beautifully restored waterfront cabana with swimming ladder, sandy beach and entertainment deck offers inspiring water views. Located less than 100 miles from New York City, it embraces the very best of Hamptons living year ’round. Oriole Farm offers absolute privacy with luxury living at its finest and a special provenance. More importantly, it’s a place for you to call home and offers the opportunity to create a magnificent compound.
