Moonlit Manor

Mid-Century Modern Retreat with expansive outdoor areas, life-sized chess in front yard, firepit, five-minute bike ride to Hay Beach

3BR/2BA - great room with hanging fireplace, wood-burning stove in downstairs study, movie theater, spacious bedrooms and fitness room with a Tonal machine

Meet your swinging mid-mod retreat in tranquil Shelter Island. Lounge in inspired luxury: chic great room w/ hanging fireplace, jungly movie theater, three spacious bedrooms, and Jetsons-style kitchen. Also: cozy study, office, and fitness room w/ Tonal machine + street art mural to keep you fit + focused! 

With its Mayberry-meets-South of France understated elegance and boundless natural beauty, Shelter Island also boasts a rich history dating back over 400 years. Moonlit Manor is just across the street from Sylvester Manor, a 1651 plantation that's now a working educational farm with weekend farm stand. The entire island is easily bike-able and we provide 4 (or more upon request) bicycles as your steeds to explore the island. The ride to secluded Hay Beach (5 minutes) and return along Cobbett's Lane/Manhaset is a personal favorite, especially at sunset. Even at the peak of summer, you'll seldom see more than a dozen people at Hay Beach and the water is perfect for swimming. Anything on the island is under 10 minutes by car or under 20 by bike. You can go from high-trend (the infamous Sunset Beach) to low-key (Salt) or classic elegance (The Ram's Head Inn - best spot for an upscale dinner at sunset) in just minutes. There's not an ugly building on Shelter Island and architecture-spotting is a favorite pastime. From the modern masters dotting the Ram Island causeway to the stately Victorian homes of Shelter Island Heights, there's so much to see. A popular saying on Shelter Island is "Life begins at the ferry" and we've found that to be true!

In this fully renovated home,  expect interiors pulled from the pages of Architectural Digest (tastefully chosen print wallpapers, authentic mid century furnishings, to name a few), and exterior views out of a travel magazine. Take a soak in the master bedroom's free standing tub as you watch deer play in the backyard. With a working wood-burning stove in the downstairs study and a beautiful decorative hanging fireplace in the great room, there's plenty of room to get cozy inside on a cool fall or winter eve. Dining room is set for 6 but the table has leaves and we can provide extra chairs on request if you're hosting guests for dinner. Every room has personality and pizzazz, and you'll find yourself making the most out of each one.

Enjoy the life-sized chess in the front garden, as well as the French game of P├ętanque (similar to lawn bowling, or bocce ball) alongside the house. There's a picnic table in the back with fairy lights overhead along with a new propane grill perfect for burgers, Beyond burgers, or the day's catch (ask us where to fish on the island!) Venture further amidst the tulip tree, Hollywood junipers, and Japanese maple, and you'll find a fire pit set up for roasting s'mores and telling ghost stories (we provide all the s'mores fixin's, you provide the stories!)

Watch the deer, bunnies, groundhogs, and turkeys munch and play as you take your morning espresso (we've got a Keurig-like machine in the kitchen) or tea in the garden. Every day is a non-stop zoo and many different four-legged and winged creatures pass through the grounds of Moonlit Manor. The bird-feeders + bird baths are frequently visited by resident cardinals, blue jays, and finches. Overhead you'll find owls, red tailed hawks, and ospreys along with migratory geese.

Each room in the house is uniquely designed to inspire, delight, and make evenings something you look forward to. Outfitted with a low slung acorn-hued king bed, the Cloud Room (aka master suite) includes your very own free-standing bathtub looking out over the garden through a picture window. Lay your head down in the Peacock Room and wake up to airy wall treatments and beautiful morning light. The Menagerie Room is perfect for kids and kids-at-heart with warm golden walls, a mid-century Lane dresser, and plenty of charm. A mixture of mid-century inspired furniture + decor with global finds make for a stylish, relaxing evening experience.
