Property Description
1850, Single Family with Accessory Building - Shelter Island, NY This is a unique opportunity to own the 7.68-acre Oriole Farm estate, located in the heart of the historic Village of Dering Harbor on Shelter Island. Once the private arboretum, gardens, and orchard owned by the family of Alice Fiske, the celebrated horticulturist of the island's first plantation, Sylvester Manor, the property is bounded by more than a quarter of a mile of century old beech hedge, which ensures privacy and is considered a Village landmark. The Barnes Coy designed home, completed in 2007, blends quality craftsmanship and vintage references with state-of-the-art systems including geothermal heat and cooling. The sprawling residence showcases double-height ceilings, five fireplaces and a flowing layout with scenic views from nearly every window. There are generous entertainment areas, along with private spaces, including a first floor master wing with library, five en-suite guest rooms some with private terraces, a media room, wine room, playroom, and gym. An alee of majestic, irreplaceable weeping beech trees stand sentinel over outdoor amenities where there is a distinctive, resort-like ambiance. A meticulously restored Lord and Burnham greenhouse, which currently serves as a pool cabana, has a wet bar, lounge space and glass enclosed dining area where memorable starlit dinners have been hosted. The 55-foot Gunite pool with spa and pergola combine with a perennial garden to create a wonderful setting for outdoor entertaining. One of the last remaining turn-of-the-century barns on the island is adjacent to the meadow and a half acre +/- designated for tennis or other recreational facilities. The barn has been renovated with new roof, windows and foundation, but still retains all of its original detail. This property is entirely in a class of its own for space, style, privacy, and a very special provenance.
