Shelter Island Quintessential Beach House with Pool
With views of both sunrises and sunsets over Gardiners Bay on desirable Little Ram Island on Shelter Island, sited on 3 +/- acres atop a bluff, this classic shingled styled traditional is what living on the beach is all about. Set away from the road, the driveway wends up to the pebbled driveway and open decks. At the front foyer, dramatic views of the water are an immediate sensation. There is an open layout for the living and dining areas with raised stone hearth and French Doors to an outdoor deck. Adjacent is a spacious kitchen with all new, high end appliances, built in cabinetry, pantry and breakfast area. A three season sun room is within close proximity. Down the hall on the opposite side are the library-TV room with fireplace and views to the water, and two en suite bedrooms, one of which has views to the bay. The second floor offers two guest bedrooms, one with an outdoor deck and the other with bay views. The en suite master is something to behold, with a fireplace, walk in closet, spa-like bath and doors overlooking the beach and blue salt water, ideal for inspiring sunrises and star gazing at night. The 20′ x 40′ Gunite pool is alongside the home, with steps leading to a wide sandy beach. The shoreline extends 260 +/- feet, with state-of-the-art premium PVC bulkhead and is in itself a destination; During the wintertime, harbor seals relax on the glacial boulders along the beach. On the inland side of the property are a guest house with full bath undergoing final stages of renovation and a basketball court. Down the lane, there is a parcel on Coecles Harbor where kayaks and marine gear can be placed. In 2018, the entire home was renovated with new windows, refinished floors, interior and exterior paint, with all bathrooms and kitchen completely new. 2020 renovations will include new railings, bluestone patios, exterior trim and paint, new washer/dryer and Belgian block driveway edging.
