Island Oasis
Built in 1900, this center hall colonial was completely renovated to the studs between 2013 and 2014 by Shoreline Project Group with the finest craftsmanship, restoring original features and adding state-of-the-art amenities. Located on South Manursing Island on Long Island Sound, it’s a rare opportunity to buy into the private, gated waterfront enclave. Manursing Island Club and Westchester County Club Beach Club are minutes away. The 1.02 acres are contiguous to the Edith Read Bird Sanctuary.

Rye NY Family RoomOpen to the kitchen, the light-filled family room is designed for casual entertaining with built-in book and media storage and expansive views past a bluestone terrace just beyond the French doors.

Rye NY Master SuiteThe second-floor master suite has an adjoining sitting room and study, fully-fitted walk-in closet, and original fireplace, which was converted to gas.

Rye NY BathroomIn the master suite, a luxurious marble bathroom with heated floors feels like a spa.

Rye NY LibraryThe striking library was designed by Elle Design Group with custom cabinetry and Phillip Jeffries wallpaper for an eclectic space with old world charm accented by the original ceiling details. Here, home owners can read by the warmth of one of five fireplaces in a home that has been restored with their original surrounds. Four-inch oak hardwood floors with a Jacobean finish complete the serene space.

A spacious kitchen is equipped with Quartzite Taj Mahal countertops, twin 36-inch Subzero refrigerators, two Miele dishwashers and a stunning Lacanche range handmade in France with two full-size ovens, seven burners and a French plate.

The second and third floor (where a loft currently serves as an exercise room) have incredible views of the waterfront. “The home is steps from the beach and a quarter mile from the Tide Mill Boat Basin,” says real estate agent Melissa Kaminsky of Julia B. Fee/William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
