Location: Shelter Island, New York
Sitting on 2.3 acres on Shelter Island, an scenic escape east of Long Island, this restored 1972 home was built in the shape of a nautilus shell and makes the most of it with custom interior furnishings. The 1,450-square-foot home was originally designed for a fashion designer, but in recent years, has been under the careful stewardship of a New York City-based artist.
Inside, beautiful wood ceilings with exposed beams soar over a curved sunken living room with built-in seating, as well as a curved kitchen with custom double-sided cabinets and concrete counters. All of these main living areas, including the elevated dining area, have views out to the verdant lawns and saltwater gunite pool outside. The property also overlooks a pond replete with wildlife.
Ample windows frame views for the two bedrooms and guest room, as well, which also offer plenty of wood built-ins and concrete accents. Have a closer look, below.
