If you are ready to take a break from 2020 – and who is not? – a private island is an ideal place for that. Bring real enjoyment to social distancing!
And while it is definitely not easy to get to one of them, one such oasis set up is for sale, in the very heart of New England.The perfect place to retreat to your own private Island with almost 6 acres of uncompromising natural beauty and the charm of an expanded 3 bedroom cottage.
Copps Island is positioned as the southernmost of the Norwalk Islands and is a short and scenic boat ride from Cove Marina in East Norwalk. This is the island that gave Copps Island Oysters its name as its surrounding waters are home to one of the East Coast’s best selling and tasting oysters. 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 expanded three bedroom, two bath cottage sits high and dry on the island’s highest point. From the impressive great room surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, one has views of the expansive lawn that stretches down to the water’s edge.
The home’s centerpiece, without question, is the large screened porch, perfect for casual relaxation, dining and maximizing the enjoyment of Island life. The master suite features a beautiful cathedral ceiling with wrap around windows, is filled with light and has magnificent views of the Sound. Two additional bedrooms and a second full bath complete the home. The island has been on the market for two months, and its price is $2.5 million.
