April 16, 2023

Island time! This one even has a landing strip for private planes. The home was built in 1907. It is located on 267 acres on Fox Island in Cape Vincent, New York. The house could use some updating, especially the kitchen. I love the old icebox! There is a main house, second home and private docks. Eight bedrooms, six bathrooms and 4,001 square feet. $2,999,900
