A Private Island Close To NYC Is On The Market For US$2.5M
A private island is a welcomed reprise from the hustle and bustle of daily life—but most of said secluded properties are notoriously difficult to get to, making them impractical for the average buyer.
Happily, this is not the case with Copps Island, a private island in the heart of New England that recently hit the luxury real estate market. An ideal place to escape from city life, the southernmost of the Norwalk Islands is just a quick boat ride from Cove Marina in East Norwalk, a coastal town best known for its world-renowned oysters. It’s also worth noting that the hidden property is only about an hour’s commute straight to New York City.
The private island sprawls across nearly six acres of totally secluded natural beauty and includes a charming three bedroom, two bathroom Victorian-influenced cottage that sits on the island’s highest point.
Built in 1960, the well-maintained 2,624 square foot cottage boasts floor to ceiling windows with unparalleled views of the island and the water’s edge below, cathedral ceilings, and a large, screened in porch with space for casual dinners and taking in the sights and sounds of the island without sacrificing modern amenities.
“From the moment of stepping foot on the boat to taking in the smells and sounds of the sea, one immediately feels like they are a million miles away from the hustle, tension and restrictions of everyday life,” the listing read.
The prestigious island property is listed at US$2.5 million by Sotheby’s International Realty. For more information or to schedule a virtual showing, be sure to visit the official listing here.
