Shelter Island Harbor Front Estate with Dock and Guest House
Located in the quiet enclave of one of Shelter Island’s estate sections bordering historic farm and 40+/- acre preserve, this Nantucket-style home, “Folded Wings,” named after the gentle migratory birds who rest at its water’s edge, is sited on 1.4+/- harborfront acres. Custom built, with room for everyone, in a layout that is unifying, yet includes private wings throughout for entertainment and guests. The front foyer has a skylight and curved staircase to the second floor. To the left is the cozy north parlor and adjacent office, and just beyond, is an en-suite bedroom. To the right of the front foyer, or south, is a full bath with double sinks and beyond that, an expansive family room and laundry room. From the foyer toward the eastern side of the home is a formal dining room, a spacious living room with fireplace and panoramic water views from wide windows. The kitchen, which is adjacent, has a hearth, wet bar, island with granite counter, dining area with water views and pantry. Just off the kitchen is a cheery sunroom with wet bar and access to side yard. The second floor has a gracious landing and two en-suite bedrooms, each with sitting area and dressing rooms. A separate wing offers an additional office or living space. The lower level is finished in the style of Captain’s Quarters of an historic ship, with beadboard and incredible detail, and fireplace. An attached boathouse with storage, shop, boat ramp with rails to the shore and 120’+/’ deep water dock with 10-12 feet at low mean tide, is grandfathered, believed to be the last of its kind on Shelter Island, and every boater’s dream. Along the 300’+/- shoreline is a grandfathered two-story dock house with kitchenette, full bath and living quarters with water views all around. With many characteristics that cannot be replicated today, this is truly a unique opportunity! Seller is a licensed real estate broker.
