Located in one of the most sought after estate sections of Shelter Island, with western facing sunset views and green lawns stretching to sandy beaches and blue salt water, "Half Moon Beach", a vintage Queen Anne shingle style home, was built in 1899 by millionaire beer baron Peter Doelger, owner of one of the oldest established beer brewery in New York City. Tucked within tall privet hedges, the long winding driveway passes a two story 1166 square foot barn with decorative shingles and sturdy second floor, leading to established pink hydrangeas and this simple and sweet home. The covered porch wraps three-quarters around, and a hefty main door with lion knocker and delicate glass invite you into the center foyer. The living room stretches from side to side, with incredible light, particularly at sunset when pink and orange hues illuminate the walls. A brick fireplace, window seat and reading area add classic touches to this spacious room. On the other side of the foyer, the dining room offers original French doors with screens to the veranda, and the kitchen is adjacent, with a breakfast nook, laundry room, mud room with powder room. The second floor has three water view bedrooms; the largest is nearly a mirror image footprint of the living room just below, with an original light fixture, window seat and a 36sf enclosed balcony with water views. The second is a sweet bedroom with southerly views, also with access to the enclosed balcony. The third has original bead board and lighting pendant. A full bath is along the hallway with double sinks and shower with foot soaker. The focal point is the deep water, dog-leg dock, replete with 6-ft x 16-ft access ramp, 6-ft x 134-ft dock with 6-ft x 30-ft "L" with sea wall, 4-ft x 30-ft lower platform and approximately 40-ft of splash platform under offshore end and "L' section of dock, manual hydro-lift, recently updated tiered bulkhead and smooth sandy beach. Peter E. Nostrand, Chief Surveyor for the City of New York, developed this area of Shelter Island in the late 1800's as an upscale seaside getaway for Manhattanites and it remains one of the storybook areas of the island.
