Shelter Island Modern with Asian Gardens and Pool
Under a high green canopy of established trees and Asian gardens, this modernist home, completely renovated in 2001, with three levels of above grade finished living, set on 1.1 +/- acres and within close proximity to beaches, integrates the surrounding backdrop of nature to its interiors. The entry foyer opens to a living-dining room with streaming sunlight and glass offering scenic garden vistas in harmony with a panoply of textures, including a rugged wall of granite with an elevated fireplace, framed with windows and cathedral wood ceilings, along with bar and powder room. The sleek kitchen has Corian counters with light splashes of color with a custom mobile island, Poggenpohl cabinets. Through sets of sliding doors is a wide entertainment deck with steps to the lawn and pool area. The second floor is comprised of a dedicated master suite with clerestory windows with views to trees and a spa like bath with sauna. The lower level which is at grade, is currently laid out as a second master suite with spacious library-media area, full bath and bedroom, and can be converted back to two separate bedrooms, if desired. The freeform Gunite pool is designed to fit into the landscape, much like a natural pond, and has a wonderful “folly” or pool cabana with a wet bar and lounge area. Japanese maple trees, bamboo planted in troughs, and 60-foot tall evergreens create an environment that is both tranquil and invigorating, with birdsongs echoing through trees. Immaculate, pristine, and tastefully designed, this modern home is turn-key and awaits its new owner.
