Inspired by country estate homes designed by noted British architect Edwin Lutyens, Oriole Farm, located in the Village of Dering Harbor on 15.77+/- acres, is a unique opportunity in every way. Embraced by magnificent trees and gardens, this Arts and Crafts style home speaks to understated elegance, quality craftsmanship, simplicity of intention and directness of purpose--cornerstones of early classic Lutyens homes. A distinctive double height entry hall with stone floors leads to the living room, which has picturesque garden views and one of five fireplaces. Adjacent is a spacious dining-living room and kitchen with professional grade amenities, marble counters, butler's pantry and fireplace, leading to a covered piazza with outdoor fireplace and integrated grill. The first floor master suite, within a dedicated wing connected by a fenestrated gallery, includes a library with fireplace, spa-like bath, bedroom with cathedral ceilings and outdoor deck. The four guest suites on the second floor each have their own character; two have covered terraces. The lower level adds 1,750+/- sq. ft. for a total of 6,765+/- sq. ft. of living space throughout the home, with radiant-heated floors, media room with fireplace, temperature controlled wine cellar, gym, full bath, game room, and mechanical room with geothermal systems. The gardens, once part of a turn of the century arboretum and an adjunct of Shelter Island's first plantation, Sylvester Manor, are punctuated by a towering allee of ancient weeping beech trees, a century-old beech privacy hedge and majestic specimen trees. A restored Lord & Burnham greenhouse with lounge leads to a meditation garden with yoga patch and outdoor shower, gunite pool, restored original barn and recreation area. The inland acreage is subdivided into two parcels, 7.676+/- acres and 8.097+/- acres. See web# 392077 for dock access. Dering Harbor Village fees for water, sewage & highway are $2,265.88 per annum.
