Shelter Island has some stunning real estate, but one that is up for sale right now is being called “The Crown Jewel” of the island, and the reason is because it’s literally that magnificent. The price tag for this piece of real estate and American history is a little under $30 million, which is typical for a 23,000+ square foot estate with panoramic views of Coecles Harbor from its highest point.
The 7.5+ acre property features a waterfront heated gunite pool, spa with sunset deck, tennis, squash court and rolling lawns cascading to a beach along with a 100 foot dock protected by bulkheads. The shingle style architecture reflects the Island’s history while echoing elegant European countryside estates, hand crafted by English, Italian and French masters. Antique reclaimed French stones are throughout with radiant heat as well as floors of French white oak and eight stone fireplaces imported from France.
Crazy cool! The elegant living room with dual stone hearths opens onto a formal dining room, chefs kitchen, and magical domed dining area on one wing with a classic gentleman’s library with hearthside lounge, billiards and bar as well as junior master suite with a steam shower on the other.
Oh, and did we mention that you can get to this home by sea plane without any problem? Yea, you can do that with this home too.
