Unique Opportunity to Purchase EIGHT Private Islands on the East Coast of the US
Situated along a quiet and protected stretch of the coast in Branford (CT), The Thimble Islands are without a doubt one of the most impressive private island packages currently offered along the American East Coast. The eight islands are available exclusively as a package and comprise the following lots:
- Rogers Island
- Belden Island
- Jepsen Island
- Reel Island
- Wheeler Island
- Cut-In-Two Island East
- Cut-In-Two Island West
- East Crib
The package includes a total of seven top-class residences and a series of further outbuildings.
During the course of the last twenty years, the current owners have carried out extensive renovation, modernization and extension work in which no expense was spared. This, combined with their attention to detail, has ensured that the private islands leave nothing to be desired.
A one-hectare mainland estate is also included within the sale, which forms home to an historic Victorian vicarage which overlooks the water.
The highlight of this unique offer, however, is without a doubt the sprawling Roger’s Island – a three hectare island characterized by its rugged coast, its three private beaches and it immaculately landscaped French gardens. An incredible mansion is perched atop the island’s highest point, promising breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound. After undergoing a painstaking restoration, the property now boasts ten bedrooms, a modern swimming pool, tennis courts, a golf-course (designed by none other than Jack Nicklaus) and a large, heated greenhouse.
The Thimble Islands are located between 5 and 10 minutes from the coast. From Manhattan, it’s possible to travel to the islands via helicopter in just 20 minutes. Furthermore, Tweed National Airport in New Haven is just 10 minutes’ away, offering access to both commercial and private planes.
