Shelter Island’s First Ever A-Frame is For Sale

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

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

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

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