Being in the presence of anything acclaimed architect Frank Lloyd Wright has produced is memorizing, making the sale of Petra Island -- the architect-designed private island, the getaway opportunity of a lifetime.
Just 50 miles north of New York or, as advertised, a 15-minute helicopter ride away, this 11-acre island is on the market for $14.9 million. The heart-shaped island is equipped with a cement and mahogany-clad abode, which encompasses 5,000 square-feet of space and includes 6 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The house is characterized by its geometry and use of natural materials which are indicative of Wright's renowned style.
The island also features a cottage, tea house, guest house, dock and helicopter landing pad, making for a luxurious and secluded summer escape from a bustling New York City.
