Feast Your Eyes on This Enormous Shelter Island Waterfront Estate
The 23,000-square-foot estate has a disco, eat-in wine cellar and private seaplane access. It's on the market for $28.5 million.
Currently on the market for $28.5 million, the waterfront mansion has 10 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a heated gunite pool, spa, tennis and squash courts, panoramic harbor views, a private beach and a 100-foot dock. Our favorite spaces are the impressive 50-foot living room, which has beautiful beamed, coffered ceilings, and the wine cellar, which can host a 10-person dinner party. Then there's the fact that the home has private seaplane access — the current owners, who live in Manhattan, apparently fly in by seaplane twice a week, according to the New York Observer.
Thanks to rustic decor and cozy touches like oak-baked floors and oak-paneled walls, the mansion never comes across as overly spacious. As broker Melina Wein of M. Wein Realty, who is selling the home, told the Observer, "You can have a very private lifestyle and not feel like, 'Oh my god, I'm living in 18,000 square feet."
