The idea of owning your own private island is the stuff of childhood dreams. Adventure stories and fairy tales often feature the idea of a magical, secluded space, separated by water, where anything can happen. As we grow up and get older, private islands and retreats become the ultimate aspirational home goal, with all the seclusion and luxury that is associated with them. There’s even a whole TV show dedicated to the idea of finding that exclusive piece of island real estate that you can call your own. Now a rare opportunity has opened up for someone to own their own island-like retreat right here in Clinton, MA.
