Sitting on a half-acre of central Shelter Island property is Greatfields, a 1788 house that was one of five homes on the 27-square-mile island built by the extended Havens family.

The four-bedroom home has 2½ bathrooms.

The house blends historic architectural elements such as wide plank floors and exposed beams with updated features such as high-end kitchen appliances and an open floor plan. There’s a side deck off the kitchen that looks over a sprawling lawn.

Actress Kathryn Erbe, known mostly for her role as Det. Alexandra Eames on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” owned the home before the current sellers.

The property is listed for $847,000 with Penelope Moore of Saunders & Associates.
