BRANFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Have you ever dreamed about living a secluded lifestyle, away from any neighbors with nothing but the sea around you? Look no further than Belden Island in Branford.

The magical retreat is the ultimate vacation home with a $2.49 million price tag. The private island includes 1.04 acres in the Thimble Islands, which is easily accessible from Stony Creek.

The private dock and sandy beach offers a perfect view of Long Island Sound amid pink granite stone walls, a rolling green lawn, and trees strategically placed for relaxation. Built in 1912, the seven-room cottage offers guests a step back in time with vintage hardwood floors, wainscotted walls and ceilings, and a country kitchen.

There’s a spacious, combined dining/living room area, two stone fireplaces, and modernized appliances.

The best part: water reflections from surrounding windows gives people inside the impression that they’re levitating above the sea.
