While most people think of Shelter Island in terms of traditional capes and classic farmhouses, it does have quite a few contemporary homes like this one on Wheeler Road.
The unusual exterior may draw most of the attention, but this spacious five bedroom, three and a half bath house has much more to offer.
“It’s unique. And a lot for the money,” said Linda McCarthy of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
Located right on the Wheeler canal, this property has water views, a private dock with easy access to open water, an inground swimming pool and beach rights to nearby beaches. At just under an acre, it accesses West Neck Creel which opens into West Neck Harbor.
Beginning with the house, each of those
The two towers that abut the front entrance each house a bedroom and bathroom. A bridgeway runs across the living area, connecting both structures on the second level.
“When you walk through the front door and look up, you’ve got skylights and the walkway across,” McCarthy said. “Then straight ahead is the fireplace in the living area and a big open kitchen to the dining area.”
The master bedroom suite is also on the first floor, as well as an extra bathroom for guests. In the finished basement is a family or media room, as well as an extra room that could be used as a gym or office.
The gunite pool sits towards the back of the house. A large surrounding deck and fire pit create the perfect environment for entertaining.
Beach rights to two neighborhood beaches is also part of the package.
“You’re getting waterfront, a private dock, plus it’s move-in ready, ” McCarthy said. “This is a lot of house for the money.”
