Located between Shelter Island Heights and the Village of Dering Harbor, this vintage traditional, part of the Bowditch estate, built in 1850, is near and dear to the hearts of many Shelter Islanders. Well maintained, "Bowditch House," with nine bedrooms and three and one-half baths, once was a bed and breakfast first hosted by Belle and Edith Bowditch starting at the turn of the century then two subsequent owners, and its character is still intact today. Its welcoming front door stoop with Adirondack chairs, flowering shrubs and sitting area is distinctive. Just inside, the center hall looks through the length of the home. The living room to the right is sunny with Balcon fenestre windows and fireplace, the latter of which is currently not in operation. To the left of the foyer is a master suite with sitting area plumbed for wet bar, full bath with outdoor access, and bedroom. The spacious dining room is adjacent to the living room, created to serve meals to multiple guests, with butlers pantry and full bath. The country kitchen is to the rear, with old fashioned back staircase, walk in pantry, room for center table and two doors to the entertainment deck and to the garden. The second floor offers the balance of the bedrooms with full bath, with each bedroom having a different personality. The grounds have established plantings, wide grassy lawn and a pool. There is propane heat in the dining area and electric baseboard is being installed throughout the house. For the vintage home lover, this is an opportunity to own a part of Shelter Island history.
