THIMBLE ISLAND DREAM ESCAPE a stones throw away from the mainland and 14 miles from the Hamptons! Leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind with your own 1.04 ACRE patch of paradise in the fabled Thimble Islands. Easily accessed from charming Stony Creek and just a 10-minute drive from dock to I-95, you will feel a world away on Beldens Island. Get whisked away with enchanting views of Long Island Sound and the quiet, protected archipelago coastline once used as a treasure trove for pirates. Up from the private dock and sandy beach awaits indigenous pink granite stone walls, a rolling green lawn with irrigation, and perfectly placed shade trees. Take in spectacular sunsets and 360-degree views from the expansive wrap around porches. Step back in time when entering the well-preserved c.1912, seven room cottage richly adorned with vintage hardwood floors and wainscoted walls and ceilings. Country kitchen with 4-burner gas stove with griddle, refrigerator, coal stove, and butlers pantry. Outdoor built-in grill makes summer BBQs and alfresco dining a breeze. Enjoy meals in the spacious combined dining/living room anchored by stone fireplace. Two staircases lead upstairs to four sizeable bedrooms and full bathroom, a second full bath is on the main floor. Offered fully furnished and includes two acres of deeded adjacent shellfish beds. Generator ready, lighting and appliances run on propane. City water connected. NEW roof. Large shed for additional storage. Get your own private island and still be able to catch the train into the city with nearby Amtrak, Metro North stations and plane travel from Tweed National Airport. Also serves as a tremendous opportunity for rental income. Location makes for easy boating with private watercraft or Thimble Island water taxi, or ferry from Stony Creek. Between Boston and NY, 75 miles from Manhattan, and 10 minutes to New Haven. Good vibes happen on the tides!
