CEO of Knoll Lists Waterfront Architectural Stunner on Shelter Island
On one of the highest points in Shelter Island, a unique home has peeked its head onto the market. And it has plenty of gabled peaks to take in. Owned by Knoll’s CEO, Andrew Cogan, the newly listed stunner reflects the innovative style of the well-known furniture brand. Historic-meets-modern at this Long Island home right on the water with a price tag of $7.75 million.
A residence this beautiful has complexity. Designed and updated by Michael Haverland, it is a hybrid of a 1925-built house and a 3,400-square-foot new addition for a total of over 6,000 square feet. The two sections have come together seamlessly, but the design in the new addition is noticeably modern on the outside. It nods to its storied counterpart by employing gables with vast glass walls. Just as the two parts work in harmony, in the living room and dining rooms, walls of glass and white walls are balanced by rustic stone fireplaces. These deliberate design decisions make all the difference.
Within this one-of-a-kind home, there are seven bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms to enjoy the water views from. Between the glass-clad rooms and the vast terraces, there’s no ignoring the blue vistas, and who would want to? This exceptional abode with almost 320-feet of water frontage takes Shelter Island living to the max. And, of course, it has all the design finesse one would expect from the CEO of Knoll.
John Catrambone with Dering Harbor Real Estate has the listing, which comes with an infinity pool and oodles of outdoor amenities. Among them is a full Viking kitchen with a barbecue and fridge, a chef’s summer paradise.
