Northforker Dream Home: Historic carriage house on Shelter Island

Brought to you by:

Originally built in 1888, this historic Shelter Island home used to be a carriage house for an old hotel, but is now the perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine while staring at the water.

Renovated in 2010, the home features a wine cellar on the lower level equipped to store over 720 bottles, which can be accessed through the basement or a trap door above.

Homeowners and guests have the option to enjoy their favorite drink on one of multiple decks or in their own home bar. The bar room has an entrance to the wine cellar and a wrap-around deck with views of Dering Harbor, said listing agents Samuel Marcus and Michael Tucker, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

“It would be hard to pick just one favorite room,” Mr. Tucker said, “but the upstairs great room with the huge deck overlooking Dering Harbor or the water view bar with a hatch to the wine cellar.”

The 9,230-square-foot house features six bedrooms — two ensuite bedrooms with decks on the first floor and three ensuite bedrooms on the second floor — as well as six full and four half bathrooms.

Additionally, the house features a library, home theater and attached four-car heated garage.

Nestled on 1.71 acres, the listing also comes with an in-ground pool, outdoor pizza oven, 168-foot-long dock, a deeded mooring and approximately 600 feet of private beach access.

“[The home is] designed for everyone to be together while maintaining individual property,” Mr. Tucker said.

A 3D tour of the Winthrop Road home, which is listed at $6.9 million is available here.
