Saunders Exclusive: $4,750,000
Saunders & Associates is proud to introduce The Landing on Shelter Island, the new project from world renowned design team Heiberg Cummings. Exclusively represented by Saunders agent Stacey Cohen, The Landing is Heiberg Cummings’ first project on Shelter Island. An inspired masterpiece of design, The Landing is situated on a western-facing waterfront acre with a dock, on a quiet street with little traffic. The farmhouse is designed to blend seamlessly with its setting, surrounded by beachy landscape with fine-textured ornamental grasses, beds with low bamboos, and tall perimeter pines ensuring privacy.
This wonderful home has 4 bedrooms, all en suite, and 4 full baths with radiant-heated floors. Sunset views from the master suite are spectacular. “In fact,” says Stacey Cohen, “There are western-facing sunset views from almost every single room in the house. It’s a magical getaway.” All the floors are of reclaimed barn flooring, interior walls are stucco, and the living room features a dramatic cathedral ceiling, magnificent sunset views and a beautiful stucco fireplace. The living and dining rooms both have beamed ceilings, and the kitchen island is a reclaimed workbench. The kitchen, dining room and terrace all present water and sunset views. Sinks throughout the home are concrete, with gunite faucets. Closets have sliding barn-style doors and all are lit. The master suite includes a bath with trough sink, glass shower and radiant heated flooring. A guest suite in a separate wing affords privacy; a window seat in the bedroom overlooks the pool below. Downstairs is a library/screening room, two en-suite guest rooms with water view and glass doors to the grounds. A spa with steam shower also opens to the outdoors.
Outdoor spaces are designed to perfection, with no detail left unconsidered. There is a deep water dock, a waterside 55′ heated saltwater gunite pool with automatic cover, a pool house with skylit bar, and a fire pit, all executed with Heiberg Cummings inimitable panache. “It’s really a boater’s dream,” observes Ms. Cohen. Patios on two levels overlook the water, and there’s not just an outdoor shower but also an outdoor bathtub. Vignettes of outdoor seating are designed for entertaining, illuminated by gas lights, with magical moon lights shining down through the trees. Evenings here are a special delight.
As William Cummings has said, “Design without context is like a boat without a rudder – you will just float.” The context for The Landing couldn’t be more perfect.
