Serene Shelter Island getaway: Northforker Dream Home

Brought to you by:

This turnkey escape spans nearly four-and-a-half acres in the heart of Shelter Island.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home is perfectly tucked away from ferry traffic and immersed in nature.

“Its unique setting makes it standout,” said listing agent Ed Brown of Corcoran. “It’s only a mile away from town, but set back from the road. It’s a place of peace and quiet.”

Homebuyers who aren’t looking to undergo major renovations before enjoying their space will find solace in the immaculate condition of the two-story Cape.

A bright and airy floor plan defines the main level with continuous oakwood floors allowing one room to flow seamlessly into the next. The open area has a fully equipped kitchen with a center island, breakfast nook and spacious living area complete with a cozy fireplace. Stepping through the sliding doors in the living room will lead you to the large mahogany deck that overlooks a pond.

“It’s tranquil,” said Brown. “There’s wildlife and the views are stunning.”

Other first-floor amenities include a formal dining room and a mudroom with an updated washer and dryer.

The master suite on the second floor offers another opportunity to unwind. A fireplace, large walk-in closet and an ensuite with a Jacuzzi tub make the master a homeowner’s oasis.

The basement level of the 2,673-square-foot home has more pleasant surprises. Lofty nine-foot ceilings make it a welcoming space with French doors leading out to the yard.

“It’s a true piece of paradise,” Brown said.

The home is listed for $978,920.
