A 3.87-acre property in Shelter Island, New York, that’s situated on a bluff with sweeping water views across the North Fork and beyond to the Connecticut shoreline, has come onto the market for $7.75 million.
The property comprises two adjacent parcels that Andrew B. Cogan, 58, chief executive officer of Knoll Inc., a furniture design and manufacturing firm, assembled in 2007 and 2010, property records show. He then commissioned architect Michael Haverland, who is best known for collaborating with Calvin Klein on his Southampton home, to renovate and expand the 1925 traditional beach house.
Two modern wings, dedicated to living accommodations and entertainment respectively, were added to the historic house. The residence, with approximately 6,000 square feet of living space, with seven bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms, was featured in Architectural Digest in 2017.
“It is a very special piece of property,” said John Catrambone of Dering Harbor Real Estate, who listed it late last week. “The view is majestic, you can see the water from almost all the rooms.”
The house features walls of glass, vaulted ceilings, polished limestone flooring, a two-story fieldstone fireplace in the living room and a wood-burning fireplace reaching to the top of the cathedral ceiling in the dining room, a gourmet kitchen, a game room and a climate-controlled gym.
The property also comes with an outdoor kitchen, large stone terraces, a roof deck, an air-conditioned three-car garage, and an infinity edge Gunite pool.
Shelter Island, only accessible by ferry, is a closely knit community, where many residents are in creative fields. It’s an year-round community with K-12 schools, shopping, restaurants and medical facilities, as well as nature attractions for sailing, hiking and biking, Mr. Catrambone said.
Mr. Cogan was not available for comment.
