“Imagine pure elegance combined with state-of-the-art design to create the premier waterfront estate in the Hamptons.”
Unquestionably one of the finest properties in the region, this luxurious waterfront estate is nothing short
of grand. Exquisitely positioned directly on the water, this extraordinary residential compound is sited on 3.25 acres comprising lush gardens, rolling lawns, and over 300′ of private beach frontage
A magnificent, 3.25-acre waterfront estate on Shelter Island – the newest destination for wealthy and discriminating buyers seeking privacy and exclusivity has been placed on the market for $35 million for the past couple of months.
The estate, with a total of 14,250 square feet of space, includes a traditional three-story manor house, a “St. Barths” style pool house with a state-of-the-art infinity pool and Jacuzzi, and a large guest house. All three buildings face protected Coecles Harbor, with water views from every room, and more than 2,000 square feet of stone terraces and mahogany decks surrounding the manor house. The estate also includes 325 feet of waterfront, with a private dock for yacht and seaplane access.
“Shelter Island is the newest destination for jet setters, investors and celebrities seeking anonymity, with exclusive waterfront living, yachting, golf and horseback riding, and this beautiful estate is the most spectacular property to come on the market here in many years,” states Elizabeth Lee Sample, one of the listings brokers from Brown Harris and Stevens.
Designed by architect Valentine Florio, each room has a unique design: the master suite includes a gold leaf bed, hand-carved marble fireplace, and a private deck; the living room is accented by a hand-carved mantle with Nero Marquina marble; and the garden room’s Bourgogne Region floor is made of 17th century limestone. The formal dining terrace features hand laid European stonework and is located just off the professional kitchen and garden room. All bedrooms have en suite baths designed for maximum guest comfort.
“Imagine pure elegance combined with state-of-the-art design to create the premier waterfront estate in the Hamptons,” exclaims Ingrid Brownyard, another listings broker from Brown Harris and Stevens.
“Picture a place with beaches, forested hills, a horse farm and a magnificent manor situated majestically overlooking the tranquil waters of Coecles Harbor, a boater’s paradise that boasts water views from every elegant room,” adds Brenda S. Powers, another lisings broker from Brown Harris and Stevens.
Extensive blue stone terraces surround the manor house, pool and pool house, and ornamental giraffe statues by the harbor are a whimsical addition to the tranquil grounds. The grounds were designed by landscape architect George Lynch to offer unobstructed views from every window.
Once a farming community with a small seafood industry, Shelter Island has blossomed into an island paradise offering privacy, exclusivity and tranquil coastal living, along with an international cosmopolitan mix of first-class resorts, five-star restaurants and lively nightlife.
