Private Island Retreat, In Same Family for 75 Years, Asks $2.7M

New, 2 comments


This idyllic summer retreat, an eight-acre island in Maine's Muscongus Sound, has been in the same family for 75 years, but the casual observer might not know it, considering it has none of the usual characteristics of inherited property, like peeling paint, dated furnishings, and a period kitchen. Instead, the six-bedroom main house has been impeccably maintained and updated over the years, while preserving the casual air that draws vacationers to the Maine coast. Accessable only by boat, the island is being sold with a four-car garage on the mainland for $2.7M. Pyne Island, as it is known, comes complete with "fire pit, swimming area, dock, moorings, studio, playhouse ... and boathouse."
