72 Gardiners Bay Drive, Shelter Island, NY 11964
Saunders Exclusive: $5,990,000
Nestled in the heart of the Hamptons, Shelter Island is a tranquil retreat known for its natural beauty and stunning waterfront properties. Among these properties, 72 Gardiners Bay Drive, located in the Hay Beach section of the island, is a breathtaking estate that epitomizes luxury living on Shelter Island.
The panoramic views of Gardiners Bay from nearly every room are unparalleled. “Bug Light” lighthouse, both a beacon and a perfect photo opportunity, glistens at sunrise and sunset just off the beach. Although its current map was developed in the 1970s, Hay Beach, located on the north side of Shelter Island, played a significant role during the American Revolution, when timber cut from this area was sent to aid General George Washington’s troops. This waterfront estate boasts fine elevation from the home for views looking onto the salt water.
The home’s interior is a marvel of design and craftsmanship, featuring double-height ceilings, a step-down living room, a soaring two-story stone fireplace, hardwood floors, and an abundance of natural light. There is space galore with over 5,000 sq. ft. of finished living space on over three levels, including a primary suite that measures close to 700 sq. ft. The living and dining areas are equally impressive and ready to entertain guests or relax with family. The layout offers many bonus areas, including a library, media room, sunroom, lounge area overlooking the bay and deck, and game room.
But it’s not just the interior that makes this property so special—its location and outdoor living areas punctuate its beauty. The hardwood deck, just off the living room, steps down onto a massive, raised deck within which the gunite pool has been set, with expansive views to the bay, and steps to the stone path leading to your own beach. A mooring can be placed just off the shoreline to accommodate a small vessel, and on any given summer day, sailboats and paddleboarding are a part of the vistas. During the winter months, harbor seals, familiar off-season visitors, and sun on the rocks just off the shoreline. This waterfront paradise is ideal for anyone who loves to be near the sea.
While many pack up towels, sunscreen, and refreshments to go to the beach, at 72 Gardiners Bay Drive, the beach is a part of your own backyard, a stone’s throw from your back door.
As you explore the property, you’ll discover a wealth of features and amenities that make this estate truly unique. From the stunning pool to the outdoor shower and sense of space and place, every detail has been carefully considered to create a luxurious and comfortable living environment.
