Want that private island life, but within commuting distance to New York? Tavern Island, a 3.5 acre strip of land in Long Island Sound near Rowayton, Connecticut, is on the market for $11 million.

An hour away from the city, the island has a 6 bedroom main house, a two bedroom cottage, a two bedroom boat house, and a one bedroom tea house.

The place also comes with a pedigree. It was owned by Broadway lyricist Billy Rose in the '50s and '60s, when visitors such as Barbra Streisand and Marilyn Monroe graced its shores.
