How would you like to own your very own movie theater? and how does your own wine cellar sound?
The amenities are big selling point with this restored Shelter Island farmhouse.
“It’s an English-style country farmhouse,” said real estate agent Michael Brennan of The Corcoran Group. “It was built in 1897 and restored in the late 1990s. But I have never seen anything as vast in my life. It is huge!”
Located at North Midway Road and listed for $3,950,000, the house offers more than 6,000 square feet of living space including four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two fireplaces, an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, a large backyard deck, a full wine cellar and a movie theater that seats ten.
Custom woodwork makes up the entire first floor. The house also has two large, completed attic rooms that can be used as extra bedrooms or office space.
“There’s no infringement on head space up there,” Brennan said. “You can walk around as in any other room.”
The grounds, which encompass six acres, include a fully heated lap pool, an English rose garden and a three-car garage. Above the garage is a four-bedroom guest cottage, complete with two and a half bathrooms, a kitchen and living room.
The other structure on the property is a completely enclosed horse barn with three corrals. The barn includes a second floor that can be renovated into either office or studio space.
The views from the house over look the barn as well as plenty of greenery. The property offers privacy, with not one, but two long driveways that access the house. Located in the center of the Island, either the North or South Ferry is a mere four to five minute drive away.
“This house is for anyone who is looking for an Island-style farmhouse with enough land to raise horses,” Brennan said. “It’s a beautiful and secluded haven.”
