$4.7 Million Will Buy You Most of This Private Island (Sort of)

We always thought owning a private island meant not having to share, but according to the brokerbabble for one Bassetts Island listing, we were wrong - a "Unique private island opportunity!" awaits in Bourne. The propeller-shaped island located between Red Brook Harbor and Buzzards Bay has just six homes and right now, half of those properties, along with one undeveloped lot, are on the market. The four listings are asking between $490,000 and $1,600,000 with a total price tag of just under $4.7 million. Not bad for your own (sort of) private island.


? Kicking off at 4 Bassetts Island with a 5BR, 1.5BA summer cottage on 2.3 waterfront acres. Built in 1950, the 1,400 square foot home features a screened porch, an open floor plan, two bedrooms and three bunk rooms. Asking price is $996,000.


? Next door at 5 Bassetts Island is the most affordable listing on the island, an undeveloped 3.1 acre waterfront lot. The property consists of two sandy beaches and is asking $490,000.


? Finally to 8 & 9 Bassetts Island, a 3BR, 2BA on 4.75 waterfront acres. The double parcel includes a 1,392 square foot home built in 1970, a boatslip at Kingman Marina and over 1,000' of shoreline with sandy beaches and deep water access. Asking price is $1,600,000. · 4 Bassetts Island [Milbury and Company]
