Tavern Island. Enchanting. Historic. Romantic. Secluded. Captivating. Utterly Unique. A private island oasis with year-round access via a separate mainland property, this extraordinary setting consists of a Tudor style 1900 vintage residence, a separate caretaker's cottage, a boathouse with guest quarters, a tranquil teahouse and a mainland garage/cottage and room for ample parking.

Accessed by private tenders and serviced by mainland city water and electricity, every conceivable amenity and improvement have been meticulously and inconspicuously incorporated to provide a modern and comprehensive lifestyle support infrastructure. A regulation size pool overlooks one of several private beaches on the island. A protective seawall provides a safe harbor for the two shore launches. The mainland dock accommodates several vessels simultaneously and the landing area offers parking for numerous guest vehicles.

Rich in history, legend and lore, this utterly unique property was first inhabited by European settlers in 1651, witnessed the British invasion of Norwalk in the Revolutionary War, housed Lillian Hellman in 1938 as she finished her classic “The Little Foxes”, and, as rumor has it, served as a setting for several notorious parties given by its then owner, Billy Rose, the legendary showman.

Historically significant, conveniently located within one hour of Mid-Town New York, serenely removed from the every-day yet entirely accessible, this is one residential offering that actually lives up to the designation "unique". This lovely island property has not been offered for sale in over thirty years.
