Petre Island

Whether it's the two homes or the heart-shape of the land, Petra Island is one of the most extraordinary properties on the market. The ten-acre private island sits in the middle of Lake Mahopac, just a 15-minute helicopter ride from Manhattan which you can park on the rooftop helipad. Accommodations include not one, but two Frank Lloyd Wright structures. The first, built in 1950, is a small 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom guest cottage, while the other is a 4-bedroom main house built in 2007. Although the timeline doesn't quite make sense, the home was constructed using plans originally made by the iconic architect. His signature style can be seen in the organic integration of the site's natural rock, built-in furniture, horizontal design, and multiple cantilever decks.

  • Hope Island

    With 11,050 feet of sandy beaches and rocky coastlines, Hope Island is a miniature slice of Maine. The 86-acre island is just a 25-minute boat ride from Portland and once you're there there's no need to leave. The property operates like it's own tiny town offering a deepwater pier, church, and tavern. An 11,000 square-foot main house provides three bedrooms and six baths, while additional accommodations can be found among the guest houses, barns, stables, and boathouse that dot the estate.

  • West Creek Ranch

    Comprised of four scenic parcels stretching across nearly 7,000 acres and two states, West Creek Ranch is far from just a house. While the home itself is impressive, with eight bedrooms, eight baths, over 22,000 square feet of indoor living space, another 3,500 square feet of covered verandas, a pool, and more, it's the total of the amenities set against the backdrop of wildlife and natural formations that truly set it apart. The property includes rock cliff walls of Colorado's Unaweep Canyon and expansive high plateau country with outstanding views of the La Sal Mountains of Utah. Also on site are a bear and mountain lion habitat, a guest house, a cabin, the historic ruins of Driggs Mansion, a helipad, an airstrip, various petroglyphs, and dinosaur footprints. Former owner Discovery Communications founder John Hendricks' love of space can also be found in the observatory, which has a professional-grade 20" Meade Telescope and rotating copper dome.
