Shelter Island Barn Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms and private den with sleeper couch - Sleeps 6 • 2 full bathrooms
This Shelter Island hideaway feels like a romantic French country house complete with fragrant lavender. It’s a newly renovated barn which has been converted with every luxurious modern convenience for the discerning renter. Think Italian lighting, glorious tile, and wonderful antiques and art. Relax in the sunny private yard by the heated pool. It is the perfect getaway for the summer and is situated in a private community which is a short bike ride or 3-4 minute drive to the Shelter Island Heights town center. It is charming and sophisticated, modern and homey. And best of all, everything has been thought out so you needn't worry about anything but what to eat for dinner.
The new chef’s kitchen featuring top of the line appliances: Lacanche French Range, Sub Zero fridge, Bosch dishwasher and quartz counter tops awaits you and your guests. Natural light floods all the spaces. The master bedroom has a high barnwood ceiling and ensuite bathroom. There is a cozy guest room with a full-size bed, and a queen pull-out sofa in the private den sleeps two more, so the house can easily accommodate six people. An airbed for the open loft workspace on the second floor can be utilized if you want to invite more guests, but once you see this gem, you may not want to share it! And all of this is within walking distance to the private community dock which offers water access for canoes and kayaks on West Neck Harbor. The house has WiFi, two LCD flat panel tvs, Bosch washer and dryer and outdoor KitchenAid Propane BarBQ.

About Julie Pincus
I'm a graphic designer, who loves to renovate homes and bought this lovely old barn to redo as our getaway. Since it took more money than anticipated to renovate we decided that we would rent it out for the high season (summers). This will allow us to be able to continue our transformation of this wonderful summer home.
Julie Pincus purchased this barn in 2010
Why Julie Pincus chose Shelter Island
If you like a quiet, and beautiful place to get away from it all, this is it. We have made the barn a comfortable, luxurious place to hang your hat. It has a chef's kitchen, beautiful pool and secluded setting. Everything has been redone with the best finishes so your stay will be as relaxing as a hotel, but with the privacy you want.
What makes this barn unique
When we saw this 1930s barn, we were won over by its charm. There are lots of Shelter Island ranches redone to the nines. There are many Hamptons wood-clad houses, but this is different. Maybe it's the fact that horses once lived here… I don't know, but with its stone floors and barn wood ceiling it is the perfect place to get away to. I redid it to have a mix of old and new. I'm into modern, but love the wood and stone, so I put in a stainless gas stove for contrast. There are little details throughout and for those who appreciate design, I hope you will like these touches too.
