Residential - Single Family For Sale in Thimble Islands


MLS® #: 170067461
Active, 652 Days on Market

Finally...A spectacular East Coast luxurious Island priced comparable to most beautiful shoreline retreats but with one special feature...PRIVACY!!!! Potato Island - Private, serene, almost transcendental environment; a brief but reflective two minute boat ride from the colorful shores of Stony Creek, Connecticut. Enjoy the sunrise over your heated, gunite pool nestled on the Eastern end of your private island, facing Stony Creek's quaint shoreline. Follow the sun to it's setting on the West end, while enjoying your favorite book and beverage by your custom granite Jacuzzi. This captivating 3,781 square foot residence embraces four bedrooms, two of which are suites, three and one half baths; all of which have been renovated to perfection. As perfect as the residence is, the privilege of owning such an island emanates from experiencing the outdoors or, at worst, peering out the windows while enjoying the many comforts from within. Outside, enjoy your wrap around porch, 360 degree water views, and park-like grounds adorned with a heated pool and deep water dock. To make it even easier the owners are conveying a boat and working on long term slip and parking space arrangements in Stony Creek. A mere 85 miles to New York City, 135 miles to Boston and a two minute boat ride for a pizza to go! Enjoy!!
