An exemplar of classic modern design, the "Treetops" residence on Shelter Island, winner of a prestigious American Institute of Architecture Archi Award, showcases spectacular panoramic water views to the North Fork, Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound, all the way to Connecticut. Architect Fred Stelle, of Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects, elaborated on the original structure, which was designed by the avant garde architect Peter Schladermundt, who also designed structures for the 1964 New York World's Fair.

Breathtaking water views are presented from floor to ceiling walls of glass on the main floor, extensive outdoor terraces, and 57' freeform gunite pool surrounded by recently installed Arizona buff stone patios.

Thoughtfully chosen materials including stone, steel and glass are used in pure and elegant ways in the residence. The main living area has walls of glass on two sides overlooking the water and offers an open layout with fireplace, radiant-heated floors, screened dining area with access to covered outdoor dining, and sleek elevated kitchen and butler's pantry. A family room with a fireplace, an office and a billiards room are also on this level. From the first floor ascend a delicate, open bluestone stairway where light from 19-foot-tall acid-etched glass windows filters through the stair treads. Arrive at the master suite, a private aerie above the treetops which features a luxurious bath with steam shower and a spa tub presenting dazzling views over the water, and a private covered terrace to enjoy the views in fresh air. Experience the blissful tranquility of this unique and perfectly located residence.
