Connecticut’s thimble islands are a majestic group of islands, and Potato Island, is one of them. It’s about an acre in size and gets the name comes from it’s shape which resembles a potato. It’s a pink granite island as many of the thimble islands are. To get to the island you take a two minute boat ride from Stony Creek.

This could be your very own island to get away from it all, literally, for just $4.9 million. You can still get back to the shore to get groceries, take out, or booze, because you’re close enough to do that, but far away from civilization.

This home dates back to 1912, and boasts 3,871-square-feet with four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. There is a true stone fireplace for the cool autumn evenings. Window walls allow full views of the ocean from all angles. Don’t forget the saltwater pool, and park like landscaped grounds. Click here for all the info.
