A little stone path beneath a lovely pergola welcomes you to this utterly charming 2 bedroom cottage with covered front porch, living room with fireplace, built in book cases and dining room. A kitchen with little breakfast area and stainless appliances leads out to a multilevel deck and large outdoor shower. The full basement has utilities, laundry and studio/office space. Conveniently located not far from town at the end of a private dirt road and surrounded with a white picket fence, this beautiful property has established landscaping which includes fragrant pines, a fig tree, raspberries, blueberry bushes, grape vines, wisteria arbor and lovely cutting garden plus tool and garden sheds. The quintessential Shelter Island country get away in a wonderful natural setting.
Nestled between the North and South Forks, surrounded by calm waters, and accessible only by ferry, Shelter Island looks like a set piece from a golden age come to life.
The Heights, a fantasia of Victoriana, is just up from the North Ferry dock. The homes of Shelter Island, however, express many styles -- from Southern colonials to Norman Jaffe modern and antique cottages.
