Have you ever wanted to hide away in your own Fortress of Solitude, or venture off to a faraway deserted island, free of any unwanted or unsolicited visitors?

You’re in luck.

For the low, low price of $6.4 million, you can purchase your own private island off the coast of Connecticut.

Potato Island, located 137 km from New York City, and roughly 217 km from Boston, is a stunning 1.1-acre property initially constructed in 1912.

According to the listing, the property is “a spectacular East Coast luxurious Island priced comparable to most beautiful shoreline retreats but with one special feature…PRIVACY!!!!”

The 3,871 sq. ft. house on the island comes with four bedrooms — two of which are suites — and three and a half baths.

Amenities include full boat facilities, a pool, a spa, gorgeous waterfront views, a dock, and a hot tub.

The property is a “brief but reflective two-minute boat ride from the colorful shores of Stony Creek, Connecticut,” says the listing.

Guests can indulge in the quaint but beautiful sunrise from the comfort of their heated pool on the east end of the island while chasing the sun to the west end and watching it set while lounging in the custom granite Jacuzzi.

“As perfect as the residence is, the privilege of owning such an island emanates from experiencing the outdoors or, at worst, peering out the windows while enjoying the many comforts from within.”

The island also features a wrap-around porch with breathtaking 360-degree views of the water and surrounding scenery.

If this doesn’t sound like sweet enough of a deal, the owners are also conveying a boat as well as developing a long-term slip and arrangements for a parking spot in Stony Creek.

If this sounds like an ideal scenario — and if you have a spare $6.4 million lying around — you can find the full listing for Potato Island on the Christie’s International Real Estate website.
