Shelter Island, New York | Sotheby’s International Realty – East Hampton Brokerage

Built in 1952 and designed by architect Bertrand Goldberg for John Snyder, the CEO of the Pressed Steel Car Company, The Snyder House was recognized as a mid-century marvel, both in design and waterfront location, offering magnificent panoramic water views of West Neck Harbor and Long Island Sound. Considered a must see, onlookers would come from Shelter Island and beyond—many transported by amphibious airplanes from New York City—to experience the so-called ‘demonstration house.’

In 2002, the current owners undertook rebuilding the home on its original footprint, maintaining the elements of its mid-century modernist design while sparing no expense to bring this 20th-century masterpiece up to 21st-century living standards of ultimate comfort and high-end quality. The result is an oasis perched on approximately 3.4 acres, surrounded by water, and offering magical sunsets and jaw-dropping water views that remain as spectacular today as those enjoyed by Mr. Snyder 70 years ago.

The original massive stone fireplace and stone floors pay homage to Bertrand Goldberg’s vision, providing a dramatic contrast with the interior glass walls, revealing water and nature beyond. Exterior amenities include a 74-foot-long heated saltwater gunite pool, a private beach, plus something truly rare and unusual: a 235 foot deep water dock. Located in the heart of Shelter Island, with easy access to world-class dining and shopping, The Snyder House offers a rare opportunity to live in history.
