Tavern Island, Connecticut
Spread across 3.5 acres, this tiny island is an idyllic private island retreat, with year-round access from a separate mainland property. From the Tudor-style residence with sweeping views, to the landscaped gardens and private beaches, the entire patch of land is immaculate, with a boathouse, pool and teahouse within the vicinity too. Heidi Klum is one famous name to have reportedly shown interest.
The Thimble Islands, Connecticut
As the Thimble Islands go on sale, buyers have the unique opportunity to own eight islands just off the East Coast. Within these eight islands lie seven residences, along with a number of additional outbuildings. But, the main attraction is Roger’s Island where a mansion sits at the highest point, surrounded by landscaped French gardens with a swimming pool, tennis courts and golf course. The islands are a five to ten-minute journey from the coast, and from Manhattan they can be reached in just 20 minutes by helicopter.
Ballast Key, Florida
Just nine miles to the south of Key West, this 26-acre island boasts an undeniably desirable setting, with a five-bedroom mansion and three-bedroom guesthouse on the land, and it’s the only private island within the Key West National Wildlife Reserve. With its prime location, Ballast Key has attracted plenty of attention over the years, even being featured in the 1989 James Bond movie A View to Kill. The island is a short helicopter or boat ride from both Key West and Cuba.
