The seashore village of City Island, an island off the Bronx that’s about a mile and a half long by a half mile wide, offers a lifestyle arguably not found anywhere else in NYC. It’s like a less-touristy version of Cape Cod but is still accessible from Manhattan via the 6 train and an express bus. And if this nautical, vacation-type vibe is what you’re looking for, then this fairy tale-esque cottage may be just the ticket. Plus, it’s asking a hair under $500,000, an attribute definitely only found on island time.
Though it looks tiny, the home is actually a comfortable 1,325 square feet. And it’s located on a 50′ x 100′ fenced-in lot with a sizeable backyard.
Outside, there’s a lovely patio with space for lounging or dining.
Inside, the kitchen might win the prize for most charming room. It has a dishwasher, vintage stove, and lots of open shelving.
There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a formal dining room, basement storage, and three bedrooms.
Completing your vacation lifestyle is the fact this home is within walking distance to the local restaurants, horseback riding, boat dock, bike trails, beach, and fishing.
