Set on a small cove on Shelter Island's West Neck Creek, this 5.80-acre waterfront lot provides the ultimate luxury, where privacy and serenity abound. This extraordinary land possesses a unique history as part of a nine (9) lot subdivision comprising over fifty (50) pristine acres along the water, with a ten (10) acre, wooded reserve area at its center. Assembled in the early 20th century by a family of avid landscape painters from nearby Waterford, Connecticut, this wonderfully idyllic and picturesque sanctuary served as their inspiration, and embodies all that Shelter Island has to offer. Live in complete privacy, a modern-day rarity, in this park-like, sylvan setting, with sweeping vistas of Shelter Island's most beautiful protected waters and bucolic fields. The property is only minutes by ferry from the magic of Sag Harbor and the wineries along the North Fork Wine Trail. Nearby Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound provide an unparalleled boater's paradise. A short drive takes you to the incomparable 2,100 acre Mashomack Nature Preserve or to lively Sunset Beach. Enjoy local restaurants, shops, golf, and tennis in the Shelter Island Heights neighborhood, and then retreat to your unique, unspoiled waterfront oasis. Iconic views. Secluded beaches. Stunning sunsets. Celebrate the very soul of the island. A true, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
