Shelter Island
Shelter Island, New York, United States


"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 wraparound deck with doors to the living room, which features double height ceilings, tall expanses of windows and brick corner fireplace with raised hearth. A dining area overlooks the deck and garden and is adjacent to a galley style kitchen. The first floor master bedroom has a full bath with shower, original mid-century modern enamel corner wood-burning fireplace and door to outdoor deck. The second bedroom has glass doors to a screened porch, and there is a full bath with laundry center adjacent.The second floor has a landing overlooking the first floor living space and a Dutch door to a sunny third bedroom with glass doors to an outdoor balcony. There is uplighting within the rafters, ceiling lighting with tinted panels over a perimeter area and vintage mid century pendant lighting. A two-car garage with separate office and potting area is just outside. The grounds feature established plantings and perennials including forsythia, cherry blossom, pear and copper beach trees, and a variety of daffodils. The access point to the harbor is a short distance away. This A-frame is unadulterated and a wonderful renovation opportunity for a mid-century modern purist.
