A private collection of 8 islands situated in and around scenic Stony Creek Harbour in Branford, Connecticut has re-entered the market for $50 million, which is $28 million less than when it was last listed.
One of the islands most unique and unusual features is the historic c.1902 manor that according to the listing has been “impeccably restored.” The bright, colourful and extravagantly playful house spans 13,100 square feet with 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, a large formal dining room, gourmet kitchen and billiards room.
In addition to the main house there is also a guest cottage with wraparound porch and 4 bedrooms, a private artist’s studio and a 3,700 square foot Victorian home. Other features include a carriage house, caretaker’s cottage, a 150 square foot floating dock and a 35-foot long concrete pier. The island also offers a state of the art pool complex complete with a pool house, cabana and gazebo.
The sale also includes the following islands: Wheeler Island, Jepson, and Reel Islands, Cut in Two East Island, Cut in Two West Island, East Crib Island, Belden Island and an on-shore waterfront property on Prospect Hill.
For the price of $50 million, you wouldn’t just be buying a striking piece of the New England shoreline – you’d be buying a significant slice of history, too.
