This house has all the elements of a true summer retreat -- a large open garden, sparkling gunnite pool, and easy access to West Neck Bay, ideal for paddleboarding and kayaking. Interiors are bright and airy. No central air conditioning, but bedrooms have individual units should AC be needed.
The house is a shingle-style contemporary and it is private, full of charm and ideal for a true getaway with friends and family. The 1 acre grounds are open and surrounded by large, mature trees that cast a dappled shade throughout the summer. The pool is 55' long and ideal for laps and sits away from the house. We have a gas grill, ping pong table, bicycles and kayaks -- quick access to Menantic Creek and beautiful West Neck Bay is steps away. My favorite place is the screened porch off the master bedroom which has a view of the pool and garden and is a lovely place to have breakfast. There is a free-standing separate guest room/studio with great views. The long deck off the main floor has large table for outdoor dining. The house is on a quiet street surrounded by open water views, a 5 minute bike ride to Wades Beach. Air conditioning units in two of the 3 bedrooms.

Important note about bedrooms:
Although I have listed the house as 3 bedrooms, there is an additional bedroom in a separate structure adjacent to the house which has a Queen-size bed. In addition, it bears noting that one of the three bedrooms in the main house has twin beds that are really only suitable for young or small children (not large teens/adults). If truly 6 adults will sleep in the house, then the 4th bedroom in the separate studio structure is recommended (and some would say is the best room in the house).
Below is a description of the bedrooms:
In the main house
On the ground floor:
(1) Master with decorative fireplace, large screened porch and full bath.
(2) 2nd bedroom with two small twin beds and full bath with separate porch and access to garden.
(3) 3rd bedroom with a porch that overlooks the bay, nicely decorated with two California-sized twin beds.
In separate structure adjacent to house:
(4) 4th bedroom is a beautiful aerie surrounded by screened windows with views of pool and garden and Menantic Creek. It has a Queen sized bed and is furnished in a summery, contemporary style and has a small bathroom.
While we want you to have a great time, the spirit of the house is more of a quiet, relaxing place for a small family or group of close friends -- grilling outdoors, relaxing by the pool, paddle boarding on West Neck Bay, enjoying a glass of North Fork rose on the deck. We love our home and it is filled with nice objects and furniture so we want you to take care of it too. No smoking or pets, please.
I will be available when the guests arrive to greet them and walk them through the house and accessible by phone throughout the stay.
I am a mother of two teenage boys, and work as a lawyer in the media/entertainment business. I enjoy spending time in my home in Shelter Island and want to make this magical place available to others who consider sitting in a breezy garden under the shade of a Japanese maple, paddle boarding on a sparkling bay, hosting dinners outdoors, and making floral arrangements with fresh cut blue hydrangeas among life's great small pleasures.
