New York, United States
Imagine your own 11-acre island, complete with a spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house as its crowning jewel. Just 47 miles from New York City, this pristine retreat offers 200-year-old beech trees, a 5,000 square foot main residence and cottage for weekend guests. The island is situated on New York’s very private Lake Mahopac.
Petra Island has its own helicopter landing pad, and is of course accessible from the mainland by boat. Two dwellings sit on the island – a 1,200 square foot cottage, and a 5,000 square foot main residence which is nothing short of an architectural masterpiece.
The cottage was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1950. The main residence was built in 2008 from one of Wright’s final plans, and is considered by some to be one of the most spectacular designs of his career. Featuring 1,500 square feet of skylights and vast expanses of stone, cement, and mahogany, the main residence is truly a triumph of modern architecture.
