Mid-Century Modern Ram Island with endless views of Gardiner’s Bay

We know we’re not alone when we say this winter chill has us dreaming of quiet summer days spent on Shelter Island. To help us get there, we offer a short series of Dream Home properties, all located on the island commonly referred to as “The Rock” by locals.

This week’s Dream Home has views that can’t be beat.

“The 180 degree panoramic views of Gardiner’s Bay from almost every room in the house are picturesque. Whatever the season of the year, there is always visual interest that is your main backdrop,” said listing agent Penelope Moore of Saunders & Associates. “In summer, sailboats pass. In the fall, the sunlight turns golden and the foliage is beautiful across the water at the Mashomack Preserve. In winter, when it snows, it feels like being in a snow globe!

The mid-century modern Asian-style home features four bedrooms and 3.5 baths, a kitchen with high-end appliances, a great room divided by a massive fieldstone fireplace that was constructed from large stones from Ram Island beach when the house was originally built. A thoughtful floor plan maximizes views from the home.

“There is a long hallway with a wall of windows running along one side and bedrooms on the other – designed this way so that each bedroom has a view of the water and a door to the covered porch outside. exterior overlooking the bay,” Moore told us.

The master suite is the first along the hall, it includes two walk-in closets and a spa-like bathroom with an air tub and separate shower. The laundry center and a full bathroom with a door to the deck are next door, effectively separating the master bedroom from everyone else. Then you will find the second and third bedrooms which share a full bathroom. The fourth bedroom is at the end of the house near a door to the driveway, which is convenient for guests who want to come and go without disturbing anyone.

Outside, the shoreline of the extensive waterfront has been renovated with PVC bulkhead, underwater jetties, grasses and stepping stones. A Gunite pool which overlooks the bay has also recently been installed. And nearby is a landing stage where you could moor and access your boat either by canoe from the house or by leaving your canoe along the shore.

The home’s location is incredibly private and desirable.

“This house is located on Ram Island which is connected by causeway to Shelter Island. At the time, farmers used to bring their sheep free range. Later, there was a small waterfront club near this house, hence the name “Club Drive,” Moore added. “Reel Point, which the house overlooks, is an environmentally sensitive area with a dune restoration program that has been underway for some time. The opening from Gardiners Bay to Coecles Harbor is currently being dredged to open up the waterway.

It is listed at $4,950,000.
