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.
