Inspired by country estate homes designed by noted British architect Edwin Lutyens, Oriole Farm, located in the Village of Dering Harbor on, is a unique opportunity in every way. Embraced by magnificent trees and gardens, this Arts and Crafts style home speaks to understated elegance, quality craftsmanship, simplicity of intention and directness of purpose--cornerstones of early classic Lutyens homes. A distinctive double height entry hall with stone floors leads to the living room, which has picturesque garden views and one of five fireplaces. Adjacent is a spacious dining-living room and kitchen with professional grade amenities, marble counters, butler's pantry and fireplace, leading to a covered piazza with outdoor fireplace and integrated grill. The first floor master suite, within a dedicated wing connected by a fenestrated gallery, includes a library with fireplace, spa-like bath, bedroom with cathedral ceilings and outdoor deck. The four guest suites on the second floor each have their own character; two have covered terraces.The lower level adds 1,750+/- sq. ft. for a total of 6,765+/- sq. ft. of living space throughout the home, with radiant-heated floors, media room with fireplace, temperature controlled wine cellar, gym, full bath, game room, and mechanical room with geothermal systems. The gardens, once part of a turn of the century arboretum and an adjunct of Shelter Island's first plantation, Sylvester Manor, are punctuated by a towering allee of ancient weeping beech trees, a century-old beech privacy hedge and majestic specimen trees. A restored Lord & Burnham greenhouse with lounge leads to a meditation garden with yoga patch and outdoor shower, gunite pool, restored original barn and recreation area.
Phenomenal views of Gardiner's Bay abound from this dramatic Reel Point, Ram Island mid century modern. Set on one acre, with 170 feet of newly bulkheaded waterfront, this expansive beach house is one of the very few Shelter Island homes with 180-degree views of pristine open water, lush preserved dunes and protected harbor. Originally built in 1965 in a design hugging the shoreline to capture water views from nearly every room, recent renovations have capitalized on its precious site, resulting in a quintessential, turn-key beach house. From the front door, the vaulted ceilings and walls of windows frame the blue salt water and seemingly endless views. A Japanese style slatted wall adroitly separates the library from the living area. A classic Ram Island fieldstone fireplace is flanked by generously proportioned living and dining areas with multiple access points to a wrap around outdoor entertainment area. The kitchen has black granite counters, white subway tile and stone floors, with double ovens, Wolf cooktop with downdraft, Fisher & Paykel two drawer dishwasher. The four bedrooms are strategically aligned for optimal water views and privacy, with a fenestrated gallery hall which runs along the length of the wing. This property is all about the love of being near the sea. A one of a kind opportunity awaits you!
