With its own private beach and tropical palm trees, you’d be forgiven for thinking this home on Long Island’s East End was better suited for South Florida.

Located on Shelter Island, a 32sqkm island 90 minutes outside of New York City, a waterfront manse straight out of Miami Vice has hit the market for just under US$10 million with Seth Madore of Corcoran. The six-bed, five-and-a-half-bath spread spans approximately 2,286 sqm and was originally built back in 1980. Sitting on just over an acre of land, the picturesque property features about 100 metres of serene sandy shoreline and a giant wraparound deck that overlooks the Sound.

From the outside, the palatial pad still has that classic Hamptons summer house vibe. Internally, the lavish residence feels a bit more contemporary with hardwood floors, high-end fixtures, and white walls. Plus, it packs a laundry list of totally wild amenities including a heated, indoor gunite swimming pool. Here, you’ll also find a hot tub, light pink walls reminiscent of Palm Beach, floral wallpaper, and walls of glass doors that open up to a sprawling deck.

Elsewhere, the stately abode is complete with an open-plan living room that has a stone-front fireplace, a sleek dining area, and a chef’s kitchen equipped with granite counters and top-of-the-line appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero. The over-the-top perks keep on coming too, including a 20-person media room with a wet bar and an upper-level game room on the second floor. For the health-minded, the digs have a slew of wellness-focused spaces including a mirrored yoga room, a sauna, a regulation-size racquetball court, and a private gym that opens up to the beach.

Additional highlights of the home include a lush courtyard in the middle of the dwelling with fountains providing a peaceful backdrop for either “sunning or meditating,” notes the listing. The primary suite is another standout, complete with a massive walk-in closet, a water-facing Juliet balcony, and an ensuite bath that has an infinity-edge tub. Naturally, the estate’s scenic, coastal location provides plenty of opportunities for indoor-outdoor entertaining—and the property makes good use of it. The grounds don’t disappoint with two separate docks where new owners can park their boats and enjoy the water via kayak or paddleboard.
