This lovely .87 acre completely off-the-grid private island is located on crystal clear Lake Williams in central Connecticut, just a 3-hour drive from Manhattan. The island is priced for a quick sale and includes a 20' Godfrey Sweetwater pontoon with 50 hp 4-stroke Johnson motor.

There is a 280 sqft cottage/camp currently undergoing some minor renovations, however building your own dream home on the same footprint could be permitted. There is shaded and sunny decking all around the cottage, with an outdoor dining porch and spacious back deck. More decking and dining decks abound around the island, along with a large fire pit for giant campfires. There is a good-sized full bath and 500 gal. septic system at the cottage, and an additional (no water) privy on another part of the island. Two solar hot water panels are included and ready to install. There are two solar panels on the roof of the cottage that charge a battery bank that runs the well-pump and bathroom lights. The solar and plumbing systems require updating. The propane powered tank-less hot water heater needs to be replaced, as does the pump and plumbing at the outdoor shower and sink at the privy (they did not winter over well).

On one-half of the island there are charming, mossy pathways leading through an extensive blueberry crop, leading to the storage shed for all your water toys. There is a very private and serene swim area with incredible views from the island's North shore across the 270-acre Lake Williams. There is a rustic walled garden and large rock fireplace, remains of the original home built in 1939. The garden includes a solid rock garden room with flat-top roof (which makes a great storm or storage shelter).

Rock Island is offered complete with 20' Godfrey Sweetwater pontoon boat; parking for one car and mainland docking for the pontoon boat are currently arranged through private means and can continue if buyer wishes. There is plenty of public parking at the Lake Williams entrance where you can pull up the pontoon and pick up all your guests/supplies/pizza delivery. You could also park there and hand launch your small boat/kayak and head to your quiet and restful island retreat.

Rock Island is only 30 minutes away from the major casinos and seaports to the south and the elegance of dining and shopping in lovely Glastonbury and Hartford to the north.

The butterflies and birds abound, and the fishing is the best around (also the best ice-fishing lake in Connecticut). If you have been dreaming of owning an island, remote and private, yet still desire the convenience of being close to everything, this island is absolutely the one you have been looking for.
