Moving is hard, tedious work. But sometimes, you outgrow a place. And Harlem (never). And your neighbors. And civilization in general.
So, start packing for 1 Willow Island, a private plot of land on Putnam Lake, just a short 60 miles from Harlem, New York, where you can live out your days as a hermit—or throw really great parties. It’s for sale, four-bedroom house included, and it can be yours for the surprisingly reasonable asking price of $850K.
The small island is two-thirds of an acre and hosts the main house plus a separate 600 square foot studio. The house is made from the same stone quarry that supposedly supplied the Holland Tunnel, so it’s got some staying power. It’s also been updated to feature an open floor plan, modern kitchen and 35 windows that let in plenty of natural light.
Park a chair in front of those windows, and stare out at the water. Or take to the spacious porch and breathe some fresh air that no one else can breathe without an express invitation to come aboard your land.
