On the .66-acre plot stands a 1932 Colonial-style home believed to be clad in stone from the same quarry used to complete the Holland Tunnel. The 1,900-square-foot main residence features four bedrooms, as well as one and a half bathrooms. With 35 windows wrapping around the two-story structure, natural light and picturesque views abound.
Inside, the home features a dramatic cut stone fireplace, an open layout, and beamed ceilings. A modern restoration leaves the home complete with a chef's kitchen, refinished hardwood floors, and upgraded bathrooms.
The property also comes with a detached studio offering an additional 600 square feet of space for creative endeavors inspired by the quiet location. Several boat docks are placed around the island, which is also being sold with a deeded garage and driveway on the mainland.
