Just over an hour from Midtown Manhattan and an eight-minute boat ride from shore, Tavern Island is one of the most convenient private getaways. The three-and-a-half-acre island provides both seclusion and luxury in the form of a 6,000 square foot home. Built in the 1930s, the English Country Colonial offers six bedrooms, four baths, a kitchen, and seaside gunite pool that has been visited by both Marilyn Monroe and Barbra Streisand. Other accommodations can be found in the guest cottage, the boat house, and a Japanese-style tea house. The property also includes professionally designed gardens, a deep water dock, and multiple private beaches.
