Island living is something of a dream for everyone, well maybe not for the characters in Lost or Tom Hank’s character in Cast Away, but if you’re thinking of your own private getaway where you can happily spend the rest of your days, then we’re on the same page. A private island outside of Patterson, New York is for sale, but it’s not just the piece of land. It also comes with a 1,922-square-foot home, surrounded by views of Putnam Lake. And, did we mention, it’s available fully furnished and for only $850,000? While it’s not a white sand, blue lagoon type of island, it’s the perfect getaway for nature lovers alike. With docks providing water access, boating and fishing are right at your fingertips which makes this property a dream home for outdoor enthusiasts.

Heading inside, the home greets you with an abundance of natural lighting, a perfectly open floor plan, and stone columns accenting the rustic first floor. Natural hardwood floors flow from each room and the modern updated furniture ties in perfectly with the neutral tones throughout the property. Large double-paned windows span from wall-to-wall providing views of the water and lush greenery that surrounds the home. The large kitchen is completely upgraded with new appliances, copper hardware, and light-colored cabinetry that create an elegant contrast with the dark flooring.

With four bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, the home is the perfect place for any small family to call home. The copper hardware accents from the kitchen continue in the bathroom, from the large soak-in tub to the piping from the bathroom’s appliances–attention to detail was clearly a priority for the previous owners. The home also features an additional room with high, wooden-beamed ceilings that makes the ideal space for a studio while the wrap-around balcony on the second floor gives unparalleled views of the surrounding calm waters.

We’re not going to lie, this property offers a lot. A private island 60-miles North of New York City, a four-bedroom, one and a half bathroom home that’s completely furnished, with an all-encompassing view of Putnam Lake all for $850,000? We’re sold.
