Property Description

Picturesque Birch Island available for the first time ever! One of the only islands for sale in the area this season, this PRIVATE 3.3 acre island is situated right off the main channel, providing breathtaking views of ships passing by. The cottage features 2bd 1ba and is all you need to escape from it all. Old foundation on the lot used to house a turn of the century mansion. In addition to the foundation still being intact, a one of a kind, intricate chimney and fireplace still remains untouched. Either build your dream home on the foundation or just utilize the chimney/fireplace for one of the most amazing outdoor entertaining spaces in existence! Old stone pump house has amazing potential to be converted to living space; imagine the 360 views! 2 boathouses; a 2 stall w/gorgeous wainscoting and workshop and a 1 stall w/deep water. The island also has the most wonderful private lagoon- many years ago, there was a sand bottom that was amazing protected swimming and could easily be converted back! The grounds are flat and maintained w/ample space for multiple cottages! This incredibly unique island is full of fascinating history and has been in the same family for over 120 years!
