About Tavern Island


Private and serene just one hour from New York City, Tavern Island is one of the rarest availabilities in the New York metropolitan area.

ENCHANTING ESTATE
Considered by many to be one of the most romantic spots in Connecticut, Tavern Island boasts incredible sunrise and sunset views overlooking the charming harbor of Rowayton. On a clear night, New York City in a stunning display of all its electric glory can be seen on the horizon. This 3.5-acre compound consists of a beautifully restored Tudor-style main house with interiors of more than 6,000 square feet, a recently built boathouse with guest quarters, an antique caretaker's house, and a tea house built on the perfect location to capture glorious waterfront and Manhattan views.

WATERFRONT LUXURY
With 360 degrees of waterfront, the property also includes a 75-foot-long swimming pool, several private beaches, and a dock with a protective sea wall—providing safe harbor for two shore launches. The grounds and gardens are meticulously maintained and beautifully landscaped. There is also a lot on the mainland with a large dock, private parking lot, and room for a house to be built with harbor views.

EXCEPTIONAL HISTORY
Tavern Island has a fascinating provenance. It was first inhabited in 1651 by English settlers and in more modern times was owned by legendary showman Billy Rose. Over the years, it has been visited by celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Barbra Streisand, and Lillian Hellman, who wrote The Little Foxes while staying there.
