A Hotel-Turned-Island Estate on Pot Island in Branford, Connecticut

More

Location: Branford, Connecticut

Price: $3,375,000

The hundreds of minute islands lying off of mid-coast Connecticut, an archipelago known as the Thimble Islands, have previously attracted vacationing dignitaries like President William Howard Taft, but until recently remained a bastion of modest families who passed the houses down for generations. Now, the rich have arrived en masse and with aplomb -- one wealthy widow recently spent $30,000,000 on several of the islands, including the $22,300,000 Rogers Island and its 27-room Tudor mansion. A cheaper option is available, provided the buyer is willing to share Pot Island with a few other houses. This $3,400,000 mansion was once a hotel and boasts a broad porch ringed by Gothic arches, 11 bedrooms, and 6,300 square feet of interior space.
