By Barbara Baker - February 19, 2019

Lover of A-Frames? This Shelter Island home could be a property ofinterest. Built in 1962, the house at 62 Cobbetts Lane was the very first housein the A-Frame style to exist on Shelter Island.

Granted, the interiors aren’t in the best shape and it needs arenovation. But the property is listed for an appropriate $799,000, so fixingit up could very well be worth the time and energy. The house stands 1,500square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms on a generous two acres. Italso has a wraparound deck and double-height ceilings, plus a brick fireplacein the living room.

The first owner was W. Radford Bascome, Jr., a photographer ofnotable people in modern dance and classical music, including the New York CityBallet. He passed away in 1984.

Penelope Moore from Saunders Real Estate represents the sellers ofthe midcentury house.
