There’s something deeply alluring about an island, whether it’s a tropical retreat or a lake island such as Cedar Island on Lake Champlain in Vermont. This one goes up for auction at Concierge Auctions in October.
The eight-and-a-half-acre island is the perfect season family retreat with four beaches, a tennis court, cedar trees, and room to explore. Tranquility, privacy, and a world away from city lights, city noise, and civilization in general are the selling features here. The island is also beautiful in the fall when the reds, oranges, and yellows of the changing maple and birch leaves brighten up gray days. A five-minute boat ride takes you back to the mainland.
The main house has five bedrooms and is positioned at the highest point on the island. It has a Panton stone fireplace with woodstove, vaulted pine ceilings, pine walls, and cherry hardwood floors. The home also has a screened-in porch perfect for enjoying long summer nights.
The island also has a separate one-bedroom guest cottage with a woodstove and an artist’s cottage. There is also an outdoor lounge area with fireplace, deck with hot tub, an outdoor shower and a gazebo overlooking the pastoral lawn.
The home comes with a 22 foot C-Hawk launch boat with 150 hp engine, a Ranger 4×4, a 17-foot canoe, kayak, dinghy, lawn tractors and maintenance equipment and a generator.
