The dream of owning a private island is one that many aspire to achieve. Now, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty makes possible the realization of that dream, with the exclusive offering of Tavern Island, a spectacular island property right off the coast of Southern Connecticut. This rare opportunity defines the essence of waterfront and island living, featuring a commanding setting with magnificent scenery and views of stunning blue waters on all sides. In addition, the island can be enjoyed in any season, with year-round access from a piece of mainland property that is also included in the offering. Situated at 75 Bluff Avenue, the mainland portion of the property has its own benefits, residing on a stretch of waterfront in the prestigious neighborhood of Norwalk known as Rowayton.
Offered at $10,950,000, Tavern Island includes a single-family, Tudor-style main residence, constructed in 1900 and featuring a wood shingle roof. The home is located on the island along with a separate caretaker’s cottage and a boathouse. In total, the buildings include thirteen rooms, six bedrooms, four full and three half baths, and 6,116 square feet of living space, as well as a stone fireplace, fully equipped kitchen with island, study, hardwood flooring, full unfinished basement and in-home recreation/exercise room. The one-bedroom, one-bath boathouse features both a workshop and a game room. A separate tea house is also situated on the island.
Views of Long Island Sound and the mainland are taken in from the decks and porch on the home as well as the patios and terracing that decorate the meticulously groomed grounds. A swimming pool also overlooks the island property, its private beaches, its gardens and landscaping, which is all served by a sprinkler system. Boats can be docked on both the island and the mainland section of the property, which features a protected harbor with deepwater floating dock, stone sea wall and pier constructed with concrete and stone. The mainland area also has a three-car detached garage that can serve as a cottage, with paving that provides plenty of room for additional parking. In total, the property has 3.5 acres of land. Tavern Island is an absolutely breathtaking offering, one that will fulfill all of the desires of the buyer seeking a stunning private island getaway.
