They’ve been called the ultimate getaways, private paradises, and spectacular retreats that feel a world apart. Private island properties are a specialty of our brand, and though rare, affiliated firms in our worldwide network do have them available for the consideration of discerning buyers. Now we’re thrilled to offer one right off the coast of Connecticut.
Jepson Island is a private island that resides among the Long Island Sound archipelago known as the Thimble Islands. Exclusively listed with Margaret Muir and Tony Nuzzo of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s office in Madison, Connecticut, the Brandford, Connecticut, island property presents a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity. The island is one of the few that is habitable among the hundreds of Thimble Islands, making the offering an incredibly rare chance to purchase such a property in Southern Connecticut. Islands among the Thimbles, long sought after by celebrities and historic figures and part of the Stony Creek-Thimble Islands Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, don’t often come to the market.
Offered at $1,995,000, Jepson Island has .28 acre of private land and includes a gorgeous contemporary vacation home, built in 1980 and constructed with beautiful natural materials. The residence offers 1,018 square feet of living space along with two bedrooms and one bath. The wood floors, vaulted ceilings, skylights, Thermopane windows, balcony and deck provide the perfect additional touches. No private island comes without an amazing view, and the home on this one has walls of glass that showcase vistas of the island and Long Island Sound. Outside, stone steps lead down to the waterfront, which features a beach, boat dock and mooring. For those seeking the outdoor lifestyle, the lot surrounding the home is ideal with its open, professionally landscaped grounds and gardens. Secluded, private and charming, Jepson Island is the ultimate getaway indeed.
