Dreams Become Reality With This $3.75m Island Listing

Picture this. You wake up, get out of bed and stretch, only to see water on all sides as your neighbors are non existent. The dream of owning a private island is just that for most - a dream.

However, every once in a while a property pops up on the market that makes this dream a potential reality.

This time, we find a listing in the state of Connecticut offered by Kiara C. Rusconi of William Raveis Real Estate that offers up just that opportunity.

Tucked away in Branford is the opportunity with the sale of "Green Island." The seaside escape offers a .77 acre spread to enjoy the wonder of the water. It's basically like someone picked up a home plot and dropped it right in the sea!

Accessible by ferry or private watercraft (one of which is included), the island home shows off a Duo Dickinson design. The 2,308 sf villa, of course, offers all of the views that one could ever want or need with such a prime location.

The listing informs us that the floor plan of the home is dedicated to gathering and entertaining. After all, what good would your own private island be if you couldn't share it with your friends and family?

Perhaps the focal point of the build is a large great room that shows off vaulted ceilings and a panoramic 2-story wall of windows.

Making a statement at the middle of it all, we find a floor-to-ceiling fireplace that was build of locally sourced Stony Creek granite.

With a property like this, we think most would agree that it's important to have outdoor entertaining space as well. With that, we find 4 expansive decks that create another 800 sf of area to gather or relax and enjoy the environment.

The primary suite is raised and also offers vaulted ceilings, this time made of natural wood. The suite is surrounded with windows and includes its own full bath, walk-in closet, and private sun deck.

Last but not least, we find an open kitchen that flows into the great room to make the most of the scenery.

As of the most recent update of this article, the $3.75m home is currently under contract. The full listing can be found here.
