Shelter Island Waterfront Masterpiece SWEPTAWAY - This property is one of the most exclusive waterfront retreats on the east end. Surrounded by unobstructed views of West Neck Harbor and beyond, this 3.4-acre bayfront compound includes a 6,000 SF, 6+ bedroom house originally designed by Bertrand Goldberg, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright, which was rebuilt and expanded lovingly by the current owners in 2002, with the talented architect David Schefer and renowned East End builder John Caramagna. Much of the stonework, including the massive eight-flue chimney, remains from the original Goldberg design. As one drives through the gates, the first glimpse of the property presents a home designed to meld with and maximize the immense surrounding natural beauty. Wood, stone, and grass paths surrounding the house provide endless spaces for exploration of the flower-filled meadows and grassy lawns. Entering the house, one is immediately struck by the masterful connection and flow between interior and exterior living. The radiant-heat slate flooring, the double-height, mahogany-clad ceilings and the soaring glass windows and doors create dramatic spaces that are peaceful respites, yet rarely take you too far from the surrounding expanses of water and meadows. If desired, the residence could be expanded to support a second level and added living area on the first floor. The top-of-the-line kitchen is outfitted with custom rosewood cabinets. There are several dining options, including a formal dining room, which is engulfed by spectacular views and has direct access through glass doors to the waterfront. Additionally, there are many options for al fresco dining, including poolside and shaded patios, or a picnic on one of several expansive natural lawns. Shelter Island has much to offer, but it would be understandable if one never left the property, as the possibilities for activity and relaxation at home are limitless. Days begin within the privacy of the luxurious master wing, and its water views, lounging area, spa-like bathroom, and walk-in closet. Outdoor activities include a dip in the majestic, recently built, 74-foot Gunite pool, which is designed for low resistance lap swimming and is insulated and sheltered to allow for three-season use. There is room to add a tennis court. The 410 feet of direct waterfront allows for a range of water activities, whether it be swimming, sailing, motorboating, or paddling - not to mention the 250' dock built from imported Ipe that can accommodate multiple boats. Evenings may be spent by the fireplace or gathered around the beach-sand fire pit under the stars, or entertaining in the spectacular living and gathering rooms. Environmental sustainability is brought to a new level here with an organic landscape plan that speaks to and supports the natural surroundings. Along with being pesticide free and low water usage it includes Long Island native meadow, cedar grove forest, and bayside gravel garden. The property includes a 22,000-gallon underground cistern and 60-KW generator. If you want to be Swept Away, please contact me for further information or to arrange a visit.
