At the very end of a quiet country road there sits a stately shingle house, perched above Congdons Creek, where time seems to stand still. This property is the very embodiment of what is so special about Shelter Island, with the hustle-and-bustle of Route 27 seemingly in another world (yet only 25 minutes away by a short ferry ride). Lovingly built for himself and his family by David Dowd, of Victorian Homes, the house has been expanded, renovated and updated throughout the years, always with an eye towards engendering magical summer moments: you can watch the sunrise from the expansive deck off the Master Suite; then, from your dock on the creek, take a skiff out to tour the boats of Coecles Harbor, visit the old cottage on Taylor's Island or head out into the protected waters of Gardeners Bay; the screened porch lends itself to a quiet moment of reflection overlooking the creek at the end of the day. Or, simply step out on the back deck, where the lawn is speckled by an orchard of fruit trees, for a sunny spot to grill and eat dinner - perhaps the day's catch? Your guests enjoy a most spectacular view from the privacy of the separate apartment above the carriage house. With the possibility to expand beyond four bedrooms and with room for a pool, this is a most unique opportunity to create your own wondrous Shelter Island sanctuary.
