Location: Alexandria Bay, N.Y.
The Skinny: Back in the early 1600s, Dutch settlers paid the equivalent of just $1,000 for the island of Manhattan, the modern day site of the world's financial capital and home to some of the most expensive real estate on earth. Now, half of New York's other Manhattan Island is up for sale, for the comparatively princely sum of $1.195M. Located in the St. Lawrence, along the Canadian Border, the property spans 1.36 acres, with 750 feet of rocky shoreline and views of the famous Boldt Castle. The main house measures some 4,600 square feet and features six bedrooms, four bathrooms, three fireplaces, 12-foot ceilings, rustic wood paneling, and a broad deck for taking in the panoramic views. Also included, and crucial for an island property like this, is an 80-foot, deep-water dock capable of handling large yachts.
