In 2006, some lucky homeowners put the finishing touches on their 8,500-square-foot shingle-style affair on Bayberry Cove lane. At $7.995 million, the house offers a master bedroom wing, loads of balconies, and a grotto-like pool and spa. But that's all just petty stuff in comparison to the house's location; it sits on its own little-known island! (There are technically two other houses on the "island," but still!) So what novelties does island living offer? Of course, waterfrontage abounds—there's about 900' of it. But the coolest amenity? The tiny bridge required to get to the house, which was actually "fashioned from pieces of New York's Manhattan Bridge." A small piece of the big city, right in your front yard.
