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

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 property comes with quite possibly the best home bar ever
The barn also features a games room and a rather rustic kitchen
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.

 

There are also two covered terraces that are equally ideal for entertaining
The interior of the house includes what the agents term “many original details”
Guests can sleep off their indulgences in a choice of six bedrooms

 

For sale through Penelope A. Moore of the Saunders & Associates realty firm, there is space on the plot for a tennis court and swimming pool: Perfect for working off last night’s hangover.
