Branford, CT (PRWEB) September 22, 2012
Jepson Island, a private island that resides among the Long Island Sound archipelago known as the Thimble Islands, is the exclusive listing of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc., executives of the real estate brokerage company announced today.
William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty said that the island is one of the few that is habitable among the hundreds of Thimble Islands. Offered at $1,995,000, the property has .28 acre of private land and includes a contemporary vacation home, built in 1980 and constructed with natural materials. The 1,018 square-foot, six-room residence offers two bedrooms and one bath in addition to wood floors, vaulted ceilings, skylights, Thermopane windows, a balcony and a deck. Walls of glass showcase vistas of the island and Long Island Sound.
Outside, stone steps lead down to the waterfront, which features a beach, boat dock and mooring. The lot surrounding the home is ideal for outdoor living with open, professionally landscaped grounds and gardens.
“This exceptional property is the ultimate getaway. With so few of the Thimble Islands being habitable, it is incredibly rare for an island property like this one to come on the market here in Southern Connecticut,” said William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty listing agent Margaret Muir, who shares the listing with Tony Nuzzo.
“Private, secluded and complete with its own charming vacation home, this island is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy waterfront living off the coast of Connecticut. The property is close to the mainland yet feels a world apart,” said Nuzzo.
The Thimble Islands have served as both residences and destinations for celebrities and historic figures alike. The islands are part of the Stony Creek-Thimble Islands Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
