SHELTER ISLAND HARBORVIEW MID CENTURY A-FRAME
"Pear Tree Acres", located on 2+/- acres with views of Coecles Harbor, was the first A-frame built on Shelter Island in 1962, so newsworthy, it was a front page story in the Shelter Island Reporter. Tucked off Cobbetts Lane with a serpentine drive to the top of a hill, privacy abounds. There is a wrap around deck with doors to the living room, which features a double height ceiling, tall expanses of windows, fireplace with raised hearth and hanging pendant lighting. A dining area overlooks the garden and is adjacent to a galley style kitchen. There are two first floor bedrooms and a full bath. The master suite has its own half bath. The second floor has a sunny bedroom with balcony overlooking the first floor living space. There is a two car garage with separate office and summer kitchen area. The grounds feature established plantings and perennials. The access point to the harbor is a short distance away.
A Standard of Excellence Your First Choice in Shelter Island Real Estate
We had been looking for over 2 years, in part because there was not a lot on the market and in part because we had very specific requirements. Penelope was the first broker I ever met who actually listened to what those requirements were and acted on them. After several intensive days searching she understood what we needed. For the following few months we heard from her on a regular basis but there was nothing worth making a special journey out from the city for. Then finally she found a house that you could tell was important to see asap and this was the house we bought. Having found it and agreed on the price, I was keen to close asap to make sure I didn’t have to spend another 2 years looking and Penelope worked round the clock to get things done. We’ve now lived here for two years and regularly keep in touch with Penny socially. She is definitely more than your regular real estate broker... A.C. New York, NY
