We’d be lying if we said we haven’t dreamt of throwing in the 2020 towel and escaping to a secluded island. And while this private island that’s up for sale is just 45 minutes from NYC, it still manages to feel like a magical oasis removed from the rest of the world. Asking $4,900,000, Oak Island is more than half an acre on Premium Mill Pond, overlooking the Long Island Sound. The main residence is a Mediterranean-style mansion built in 1917, and you’ll also get a pool/hot tub, separate two-car garage/pool house, and gorgeous lush landscaping.

Premium Point is an exclusive, gated community that’s part of New Rochelle. It’s made up of a couple of small islands and a narrow strip of land, all of which is connected by bridges to the mainland. From the Revolutionary War through to the late 19th century, Premium Point was an active gristmill, after which time it turned into a hub of the local, upscale yachting scene. After becoming part of the larger New Rochelle suburb, it’s attracted big-name residents such as artist Norman Rockwell, J.P. Morgan, Nigerian billionaire and diplomat Antonio Deinde Fernandez, and former Yankees manager Joe Torre. Today, it has 24/7 security, a private beach, and a marina.

The 7,600-square-foot home on Oak Island has classic Mediterranean-style architectural details like a terra-cotta roof, arched windows and doorways, cast-iron details, and multiple balconies and terraces.

Inside, more architectural beauty is on display with beamed ceilings, ceiling medallions, moldings, carved fireplace mantles, and more. Bay windows, window seats, and floor-to-ceiling windows create a true indoor-outdoor experience.
