Inside a nautically inspired Shelter Island mansion with a deepwater dock and a private beach, a trap door in the bar’s teak and holly floors beckons visitors “below deck” to a 720-bottle wine cellar. The listing price is $6.9 million.
The 9,230-square-foot home has six ensuite bedrooms, five fireplaces and four half-baths. Portions of the home date back to 1888, listing agents Samuel Marcus and Michael Tucker of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty say.
In addition to the bar, the first floor has a living room, library/den and home theater. A chef’s kitchen is open to dining space and a sitting room with a fireplace and doors to a deck.
A bridal staircase leads to the second floor, where a great room with a fireplace and pool table includes a kitchenette, powder room, office and doors to a second, elevated deck.
The 1.71-acre parcel includes a new in-ground pool and a heated attached four-car garage.
