While many New Yorkers hanker after the exclusive reserves of the Hamptons, this Private Island called Tavern Island is more the choice of the connoisseur; the buyer searching for real value . While $10m is hardly considered affordable, when you consider the incredible setup the island offers and that it is just an hour outside of NYC, we think the is the dream escape.
The island is spread over 3.5 acres with the main 7 bedroom Tudor house, a cottage and boat house. It also comes with its own cannon, just in case. It was the pool that first caught our eye and gave an insight to just how special this luxury island really is;
A mini paradise with everything you could need on your doorstep. The Island was once owned by legendary producer Billy Rose with Marilyn Monroe joining as a guest during the 1950s.
A spokesman for Sotheby’s, which has listed the property, said: ‘A private island oasis with year-round access via a separate mainland property, this extraordinary setting includes a Tudor style 1900 vintage residence and a separate caretaker’s cottage.
‘It also boasts a boathouse with guest quarters, a tranquil teahouse and a mainland garage/cottage with room for ample parking.’
