Property Description

One of the most remarkable properties ever to become available, Great Island is a private 60-acre island accessible via causeway with over a mile of pristine shoreline on the Long Island Sound. The beloved home to the same family for generations, this is the largest private island ever to be offered for sale on the East Coast and represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy your own private paradise in one of the regions most exclusive locales. Surrounded by sparkling blue waters, the centerpiece of the property set high on rocky bluff with breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound is a circa 1905 13,000 Sq Ft manor, reminiscent of a romantic Italian villa and beautifully detailed with the fine craftsmanship for which the era is known. A 3-bedroom stone house, 19th century Farmhouse, Seaside Bungalow and a charming Beach Cottage share the setting with a white sandy beach and rare deep-water dock that can accommodate a 100-foot yacht. Equally memorable is the compounds world-class equestrian facility designed by renowned architect Rafael Guastavino and was home base to five-time Olympic show jumper and gold medalist William Steinkraus. Equestrians will appreciate the beautiful 18-stall granite stable and indoor heated riding arena. Just outside and overlooking the harbor, there is an outdoor sand dressage ring and a large, half-size polo field which is suitable for setting hunter/jumper courses and the numerous paddocks and riding trails that comprise the facility.
