Best Little House on Shelter Island Under 500K

HAD DINNER LAST NIGHT with a friend who is a real estate agent on Shelter Island, tucked between Long Island’s two forks and reachable only by ferry. I asked her to tip me off to the best older house on the market right now under 500K.

She likes this 1930s shingled cottage on half an acre that was once part of a lima bean farm. It’s 2BR, 1 bath, with a sun porch enclosed by jalousie windows, plus a huge unfinished attic, below, with great potential for additional living space. The house is near the historic, Victorian-gingerbread-laden community of Shelter Island Heights.

Asking price is 495K.
