The Skinny: Set on the island financier J.P. Morgan once made his summer residence, this 10,000-square-foot cottage now brushes elbows with the likes of John Travolta. Located in the ominously named community of Dark Harbor, the four-season manse features 680 feet of waterfront, a deepwater dock, eight wood-burning fireplaces, and old-world carved wood trim throughout. The kind of place that inspires Realtors to put quotes around cottage, this seaside spread was built in 1914 by banking heir A.J. Drexel Paul, the kind of guy who could afford to vacation for months without returning to "work" in Philadelphia. Maybe that's why houses like this are a dying breed.
