INFORMATION: Located in historic Dering Harbor Village this newly completed residence echoes Shelter Island's classic history. This majestic 3.25 acre private estate was created by Martin Ross Development respecting the spirit, tradition, and proportions of the great Dering Harbor mansions and architecture of the 18th century. A classic design with all the grace and charm of another era boasting 5,500 sf of open light filled interiors, 3,000 sf of extensive outdoor entertaining areas and all the 21st-century amenities. The rolling hillside of Gardner's Bay Country Club through the lush Manhanset Woods to the shores of the sheltered and beautiful Dering Harbor create a beautiful and serene backdrop for this island getaway. The stately approach up the long driveway to the welcoming courtyard allows for elapsed views of the architectural detail before entering the grand 3 story drawing room streaming with natural light across the wide planked flooring. The sun-drenched eat-in Chef's kitchen was designed by Lindy Woolcott featuring custom cabinetry, statuary counters, professional appliances, open dining area and butler's pantry. Adjacent is the family room with wood burning fireplace and French doors leading to the lattice covered porch. A large Jr. master suite completes the first floor. The grand staircase and expansive 2nd story landing lead to the master wing featuring a fireplace and twin French doors to a private balcony, a pair of walk-in closets and spa bath styled with a combination of marble and glass adorned in Waterworks and Newport Brass fixtures. 3 additional guest rooms and laundry complete the second floor. The basement offers a full bath with backyard egress and an additional 2,800 sf that could be finished for additional living space, recreational area, media room and gym. Out back, an extensive covered deck overlooks the 20x50 heated Gunite pool with bluestone patio and scenic woodland views. The pool cabana with attached pergola and outdoor shower complete the backyard retreat. For the motor cars, the property offers a detached 650 sf 2 bay garage with vaulted ceiling allowing lifts for additional vehicles. A manicured professional landscape package frames the estate.
