“You think you’re at The Breakers in Palm Beach,” says Penelope Moore from The Corcoran Group of one of her listings on Shelter Island. And she’s apparently right. This traditional-style home on 1.33 acres is on the southwest side of Shelter Island, which is one of the few areas on the island with long stretches of sandy beach. And the consequent shore breeze precludes the need for any air conditioning, says Moore.
Russell Ireland Jr., owner of both Martin Viette Nurseries and Ireland Gannon Landscaping, and his family have summered at this home since it was built in 2007. The 7,000-square-foot house has six bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a heated pool, a master suite with its own living room, a second kitchen off the pool area and several porches.
When not enjoying the warm curtain-billowing breezes at this home, Ireland and his family live at their ranch in Brazil (his wife’s native country).
The home is listed for $6.5 million, and taxes are $17,250.
