Shelter Island is a hidden gem on the East End of Long Island, with calm waters protected by the North and South forks, making it a boaters paradise, with top beaches, sailing, sports and top notch restaurants close at hand.
This newly built custom home is on a very private acre protected by a landscaped garden and rolling forests, some 100 yards from the water on West Neck Bay which is excellent for kayaking, fishing and water skiing. This home features excellent open entertaining areas, a large country kitchen with Viking appliances, dining room, 2 fireplaces, 2 master bedrooms, 3 upstairs bedrooms and a spa with jacuzzi. Large sliding doors from the living room and master bedroom leading out to the deck and a wonderful rose garden enhance the open feel of the home. The sheltered outdoor deck area leads to a private elevated pool with a separate hot tub. The house is completely modern with built-in audio and WiFi through out the house and outdoor areas and two-zone central air.
Shelter Island is nestled by the protective arms of the North and South Forks, only accessible by ferry. It's a boaters and beach goers paradise as the waters are calm and the nature sweeping. As remarkable as the homes is the abundance of untouched land. In fact, one-third of the island is preserved, including the 2100 acre Mashomack Preserve. However, if you want a people scene, sail or drive to Andre Balaz's Sunset Beach restaurant, where the view rivals the food and celebrity star power, almost making you feel like you are in Southern France. For music cognoscenti, there are stirring concerts by the young talents at Itzhak Perlman.
The island is only accessible via two ferries which makes it very private and safe. It's easy to get around by bicycle and foot as the traffic is very calm. The home is very close the best beach on the island, golf, tennis, horseback riding and of course boating. It's only 2 min by car to Sunset Beach and 5min from the North Ferry and Shelter Island Heights. There is excellent public transportation to the nearest harbor Greenport with the LIRR and the Hampton Jitney, and then it's just a 7min ferry ride over to the Island. This is excellent if you would like to avoid driving and getting stuck in traffic.
