May 9, 2018

Don’t we all need our own island?! I love the view from the master bedroom!! And that room with all of the couches. And the Jacuzzi right on the side of the island! And the owners are leaving the boat. And. And. And. Built in 1912 in Branford, Connecticut. 85 miles to New York City. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,871 square feet. $4,900,000

From the Zillow listing:


Finally…A spectacular Island priced comparable to most beautiful shoreline retreats but with one special feature…PRIVACY!!!! Potato Island – Private, serene, almost transcendental environment; a brief but reflective two minute boat ride from the colorful shores of Stony Creek, Connecticut. Enjoy the sunrise over your heated, gunite pool nestled on the Eastern end of your private island, facing Stony Creeks quaint shoreline. Follow the sun to its setting on the West end, while enjoying your favorite book and beverage by your custom granite Jacuzzi. This captivating 3,781 square foot residence embraces four bedrooms, two of which are suites, three and one half baths; all of which have been renovated to perfection. As perfect as the residence is, the privilege of owning such an island emanates from experiencing the outdoors or, at worst, peering out the windows while enjoying the many comforts from within. Outside, enjoy your wrap around porch, 360 degree water views, and park-like grounds adorned with a heated pool and deep water dock. To make it even easier the owners are conveying a boat and working on long term slip and parking space arrangements in Stony Creek.
