This lovely .87 acre completely private island is located on Lake Williams, just a 3 hour drive from Manhattan. The sale includes a 20' pontoon, with 50 hp 4-stroke Johnson motor. 5% buyer's agent fee will be honored.

The island features a 280 sqft cottage/camp and building your own dream home on the same footprint is permitted. There is shaded and sunny decking all around and an outdoor dining porch. The spacious back deck is shaded by one enormous, gorgeous tree, and overlooks the water. The cottage is offered fully furnished or bring your own ideas. There is a good sized full bath, including a solar and propane powered tank-less hot water heater and 500 gal. septic system.

Enjoy free antenna TV and lighting, completely off the grid, run by a silent, solar generator. Rooftop solar panels power the wired in DC power outlets to the cottage and the solar well pump. The island can easily be hooked up to mainland electric if you wish.

There is a rustic walled garden and large rock fireplace built in 1939. The garden includes a solid rock garden room with flat-top roof (which makes a great storm or storage shelter), complete with ladder for exceptional star-gazing!

On one-half of the island there are charming, mossy pathways leading through an extensive garden of wild blueberries, with featured paths leading to the hidden guest cottage/storage shed. There is a guest 'privy' with a $1,300 mulching toilet and pedestal sink, along with an outdoor shower (cold only). Two solar hot water panels are included and ready to install.

A movable, wooden sunset deck faces due West and is a step off the island and directly onto the deck, and can be moved out onto the water as a swim deck or party barge. More decking and dining decks abound around the island, along with a large fire pit for giant campfires and three other portable fireplaces spread around the property, complete with enough seating for tons of family and friends! There is a very private and serene swim area with incredible views from the island's North shore across the 270 acre Lake Williams. Pure bliss!

Rock Island is offered turn-key, and includes all furnishings (indoor and outdoor, grill, portable heater), landscaping equipment (lawn mower, hedge trimmers, etc.), the 20' Sweet-water Pontoon boat and a 4-person pedal boat. On shore docking and parking can be arranged through private means (call or email for details).

A quiet and restful retreat, yet only 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.
