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 Although the timeline doesn't quite make sense, the home was constructed using plans originally made by the iconic architect.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.
