This 1884 Queen Anne style waterfront estate possesses an extraordinary provenance, and has been lovingly restored, retaining its original character. Set on 1.87 elevated acres with 200 +/- feet of sandy beachfront on Shelter Island Sound, the sweeping sunset views from four levels of living space, comprising 7165 square feet, offer a bird's eye view all the way to Connecticut. The area, named "Divinity Hill" after this and the adjacent home on this picturesque lane were built by Dr. Richard Salter Storrs, a minister who delivered a speech for Abraham Lincoln, as well as the convocation for the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge. A wide circular driveway leads to the front steps. The entry foyer, which has a fireplace, cushioned window seat, sitting area and an abundance of natural light offers a view through the home to the water. The library is adjacent with fireplace and full bath. The living and dining areas extend along the waterfront side of the home, with well placed windows and French doors opening to an incredible sound front entertainment veranda. The kitchen, practical and stylish, has a center island, breakfast area with expansive water views, and an adjacent mud room entry. From the entry foyer, the staircase leading to the upper floors is truly graceful, with intricately carved newel posts and balusters. The second floor has three guest bedrooms, one with water views, plus a grand master suite with sitting area, fireplace, and spacious spa-like bath with soaking tub and shower, and a private waterfront deck. The third floor has high ceilings, incredible views of the sea and sand, sailboats and osprey nest, with living room, two bedrooms with water views and full bath. The lower level which is at grade, was once the "summer kitchen" and features a media room, billiards area, entertainment bar, lounge, full bath, powder room and bedroom with doors to expansive lawn, Gunite pool, patio area and meandering garden path leading past a tall osprey nest and sea grasses to the sandy beach, which is wonderfully idyllic and private. Within close proximity to ferry, fine dining and golf, this estate is indeed divine in every way.
