7 ACRE PRIVATE ISLAND Featured in National Geographic Magazine,with Historic 3 Bedroom Home -Above the Flood Plain!!! One of the most exciting listings EVER to hit our market! Only 3 owners have had the privilege of stewardship of this unique property since the home was built in the early 1930's. The whitewashed Sears-Roebuck home stands in a sunny meadow amid the ancient forest, incredibly preserved by its owners. Stepping ashore and walking the quiet footpath beneath the canopy of giant pines leading to this magical home, is a sensation like no other. It feels like a departure from the current cares of the world or even to another era entirely. Don't be fooled though, the home is equipped with every modern convenience one could want. To arrive at the island from the rest of the world, one can ferry across by flat bottomed boat or by sky in the aerial tramway. Inside the home you will find all the original woodwork and character. However modern updates have also been included such as 200 amp panel and even a composting toilet! (check out www.sun-mar.com) Make this magical piece of paradise YOURS today!
