Shelter Island’s Ram’s Head Inn up for sale with $9.75M price tag
The 90-year-old Ram’s Head Inn on Shelter Island, which also contains a restaurant and venue, has hit the market again for $9.75 million, Curbed reported. The 12,000-square-foot inn has a three-story Colonial-style manor house with 22 rooms; indoor and outdoor events spaces; a 110-seat restaurant and a 5,000-square-foot unfinished basement. The 4.3-acre property at 108 Ram Island Drive also has an all-weather tennis court, regulation-sized bocce court, deep water docks, eight moorings and 800 feet of west-facing water frontage on Coecles Harbor. There is another 2.2 buildable acres that could be added to the purchase, although a price for the additional parcel could not be confirmed. Peter Humphrey of Douglas Elliman has the listing. The inn had previously tapped the Corcoran Group when it listed for nearly $12 million in January 2017. Marcus & Millichap then took over the listing later that year after the compound took a $1 million price cut. James and Linda Eklund of Shelter Island-based Reich/Eklund Construction have owned the inn for the past 37 years. [Curbed]

Riverhead solicits feedback on building height rule change
The Riverhead Town Board will hold a public forum on Jan. 31 to allow residents to make comments and give suggestions about a proposal by the Downtown Revitalization Committee to raise the building height limit, Newsday reported. Under the proposal, the maximum height for buildings would be two stories, or 24 feet. They could, however, climb to three stories with the transfer of development rights and reach four stories with the full purchase of development rights. The restrictions would apply to the DC-1 downtown zoning district. Riverhead has been looking to redevelop parts of its downtown. At regular meetings on Dec. 18 and Jan. 3, property owners expressed worry that the proposed zoning changes would limit potential uses for buildings, inhibit economic growth and their own income.

Hudson Yards architect’s Southampton home lists for $2.99M
