World-renowned Heiberg Cummings have brought their magic to Shelter Island. An inspired masterpiece of design, The Landing is situated on a western facing waterfront acre on a quiet street. 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. 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.
