Stately elegance on Shelter Island: Northforker Dream Home

Brought to you by:

Even the most discerning of buyers would take notice of this Shelter Island estate. Its elegance and grandeur make it fit for the Hamptons, but it also boasts of a tranquility that can only be found on Shelter Island.

“It is a remarkable property,” said listing agent Wayne Marciano of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “It is a peaceful Shelter Island retreat that offers the perfect expression of stately, seaside elegance.”

This island hideaway features a private beach overlooking beautiful Coecles Harbor.

“It is the perfect vacation home,” Marciano said. “Once you are there, you are away from all the hustle and bustle. You can feel that you’re truly away from it all.”

Enjoy the afternoon sea breeze and stunning harbor sunsets on the expansive deck with sweeping views of the water. The nautically inspired interior is just as stunning. Noted architect Peter Pennoyer designed this shingle-style sanctuary with the utmost attention to detail and comfort.

“Pennoyer is one of those designers who marries modernity with classism,” Marciano said.

The house welcomes guests with a double height entry hall bathed in sunlight from clerestory windows. The classic portico leads into an expansive living room with adjoining dining room. Timeless architectural details punctuate the updated space. A modern gourmet kitchen was recently refitted by the owner and includes marble countertops and wide oak flooring.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home also boasts a separate guesthouse with an oversized bedroom/sitting room and micro-kitchen with counter seating and a full bath. All these finer things are enhanced by its location on 1.6 acres of peaceful property with all the charm of Shelter Island is known for.

“You just relax when you’re there,” Marciano said. “It is a lovely spot.”

The home is listed for $4,295,000.
