The most lavish and expensive private island in America has just been listed for sale. It’s interesting to note that this property was first listed on the market back in 2016 for $175 million. But now it’s back again and worth considering because of everything it offers.
This 60-acre beauty is located on Long Island Sound, between Darien, Connecticut, and Greenwich Village – which makes it perfect as an entertaining destination or vacation home! The asking price? A whopping $100 million dollars.
The history of this beautiful home is quite interesting. It was built in 1902 and then purchased shortly after by Zieglar, a baking powder tycoon. It’s remained in the family since then.
The Great Island estate is an impressive property with over 13,000 square feet that includes 10 bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It’s situated perfectly over a mile from the picturesque waterfront of Long Island. This luxurious getaway has it all—from horse riding to beaches with pools.
There is also a two-story white guest house with beautiful glass doors that give you the perfect view any time of the year. One of the most likable parts of the property is the clear blue water that surrounds the mansion, making you feel like you’re in a private oasis.
Ziegler’s descendants include Olympic showjumping champion and gold medal winner William Steinkraus. In the 1930s, architect Addison Mizner did renovations to this home that was for one of America’s wealthiest families at the time–the Zieglers. If you’re into horseback riding, this property is ideal.
It has a large, 20-stall stable that is beautifully crafted with beautifully painted blue horse stalls. The property itself seems to be a perfect getaway, but you’re still close to city life. In fact, the Ziegler estate is only about 50 miles from New York City.
Anyone who is craving a private home with the largest private island for sale on the East Coast will surely have everything they need with this hidden gem.
