This 10,300-square-foot Shelter Island estate listed for $11.995 million and constructed by East Hampton builder Ben Krupinski is designed to give warm feelings in more ways than one. The six-bedroom, 7.5-bath residence features radiant heat on the lower level and in each of the bathrooms, which are filled with marble and tile. Heated chrome towel racks are another hot feature.
“It’s a fantastic luxury touch,” listing agent Seth Madore of The Corcoran Group. “The towels dry off, never get musty, and they’re nice and warm all the time.”
The shingled Gambrel-style home, which was built in 2007, includes six fireplaces, wood floors and doors, gently curving moldings and custom finishes and millwork.
White walls and natural light brighten the home, and the kitchen, living and dining rooms, which open to a wraparound porch, have views of Peconic Bay. The home’s due-west exposure ensures sunsets year-round, Madore says.
A custom Christopher Peacock kitchen includes custom cabinetry, an approximately 20-foot-long center island and a butler’s pantry.
The second-story master bedroom suite has a fireplace, sitting area and a waterside balcony. Each of the bedrooms includes an en-suite bathroom.
The home, which is equipped with central air conditioning and a full sprinkler system, has a full attic.
The 1.52-acre property includes a 148-foot, L-shaped dock, a private path to the beach and a heated 50-by-20-foot gunite pool overlooking the water. A bluestone-surrounded spa includes a cabana, and the pool and spa have automatic covers.
