Shelter Island Whaling Capt’s Mansion Offered at $4.7M

New Construction, completion date August 2017. 

Designed as a Whaling Captain’s Mansion or Manor House, executed by a top east-end builder.

This 5400 SF home features 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, and is complete with a detached two car garage that looks like a carriage house. It also includes a pool house and gunite pool and deck. The home sits on 3.25 acres and offers the owner total privacy in an estate like setting.

The Alaskan cedar exterior siding and wood roof with period Shelter Island details looks more authentic than a new construction project and more characteristic of a historical restoration. It’s rich interior trim details, wide plank pine floors, Italian marble baths throughout, and appointed with refined hardware features.

If this were in Sag Harbor, it would likely be shoehorned onto a small lot in a tiny setting and might be priced over $6.8M. This home is roughly $2M under what would be offered in other Hampton Communities.

As an FYI ..

This project also serves as The RELM Showcase Home and features  direct shipped materials like flooring, poplar trim detail, and cedar decking from Augusta Maine; siding from British Columbia; and marble tile & counter tops from Bologna Italy.
