A private island in New York is for sale for $12.9 million.
The island, called Petre Island, is located in Carmel, New York, a little over an hour's drive from New York City.
Two houses designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright sit on the property.
The island has been on and off the market and was previously listed for $15 million in 2017.
The first house is the original 1950s guesthouse ...
... and the other is a four-bedroom residence that juts out over Lake Mahopac.
A helipad on the roof of the main house makes the property just "a quick helicopter ride from Manhattan or Westchester Airport," the listing notes.
A staircase leads down from the house to the boat dock.
The house is built around a large rock.
The inside of the home is decorated in warm, earthy tones.
Stonework is scattered throughout the house, including in the modern kitchen.
Several fireplaces help cozy up the home.
Some of the bedrooms open up to balconies overlooking the lake.
The bathrooms are minimal yet luxurious.
Wooden shelving and storage are built into the home ...
... and huge skylights let in plenty of natural light.
One section of the house extends out over the water and offers panoramic views of the lake.
Outside, expansive living areas allow al fresco dining ...
... or warming yourself up by a fire in colder weather.
You'll have the nearly 11 acres of the island all to yourself.
There is some controversy over the main house on the island.
According to Curbed, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a 5,000 square foot home for the island in 1950 but ended up building a small cottage instead, after the owner came to the realization that he couldn't afford the larger one.
Years later, a new owner of the island had the original design built, but the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation does not recognize it as an authentic Wright design.
Still, the geometric elements and blending with nature embody Wright's designs. And the private island setting is quite the draw in itself.
