Throughout the country there are magnificent private communities built upon islands, completely surrounded by water. Some are located just off the coast, where deep ocean waters beckon, while others are found on beautiful freshwater lakes and even within rivers. These exclusive enclaves are typically accessible by bridge, and sometimes only by boat or aircraft. Of course, the jewel of America’s island living is the Hawaiian Island chain of six major islands and dozens of smaller islands. Each island has its own character and natural appeal, offering a distinct personality, pace of life and cost of living.
Apart from Hawaii, luxurious island properties can also be found up and down the Unites State’s vast coastline. Fabulous locations abound such as the rugged, rocky coast of Maine, the glorious Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Golden Isles of Georgia, the tropical Florida Keys, Texas barrier islands and the myriad of islands in and around Washington’s Puget Sound. Whichever you choose, the allure is the same: the unique tranquility and privacy that only island living can provide.
With water as the backdrop at every compass point, island properties feature direct oceanfront, ocean view and waterway settings. Boaters and anglers find island living especially appealing with island real estate amenities typically include marinas, private boat docks and resort style facilities. The east coast’s renowned Intracoastal Waterway, which extends from Maine to Miami, provides boat access to thousands of coastal islands. With deepwater access, many barrier islands have been developed with spectacular private communities which are accessed exclusively by ferries and yachts via the Intracoastal Waterway.
Island homes are not limited to grand estates– there are exceptional island properties for every taste and budget featuring villas, townhomes, high rise condos and vacant building sites awaiting the home of your dreams.
