Raising the bar

A Shelter Island Heights home with quite possibly the best home bar ever comes to the market for £1.2 million

 

There are homes with bars and then there’s this 4,000 square foot “plantation-style house” on 6 acres just outside Shelter Island Heights, New York. It is for sale for $1.875 million (£1.2 million) and features a two-storey barn that has been converted into a drinker’s paradise.

The house is situated at the corner of Ferry Road and West Neck Road just outside of Shelter Island Heights

 

Built in 1911 for a local politician and farmer named Evans K. Griffing, the main house includes 6 bedrooms and ample entertaining space, but what is truly impressive is the party barn within the grounds. Used for what Americans term “benefits” and jazz concerts, this space includes a bar, games room and kitchen. It is currently kitted out with everything a drinker might desire and in addition there are also two covered verandas for outdoor dining to the front of the property.
