Presently asking $59.5 million (a significant drop from its original list price of $105 million), the listing also comes with eight acres on the mainland, and offers its residents the incredible ability to travel to the island-home by boat, and arrive inside the main house or boathouse via computerized rail without ever leaving the deck or step on a dock.

The entire Shelter Island complex is improved with clay shooting range and jogging trails. Only the best materials were used in the making of the luxe structures, including hewn stone, copper, and other natural materials. Among its exterior details are a lichen-covered native Montana Chief Cliff stone, trims of custom copper, Indiana limestone, and blue/black Virginia slate roofs. Due to its positioning on the out-jutting point of the island, the main home has some of the country’s most picturesque views.
