THIS UNIQUE 0.8-acre private island could be all yours for around £2.2m despite being part of two landmasses split to look like two halves of the same island.
Amazing aerial images show lush-green island from above with the four-bedroom main residence standing out and the bridge walkway connecting the two parts of the island clearly visible.
Other stunning shots show the interior of the main house which comes unfurnished but features a modern kitchen, luxurious bathroom and spacious living area with huge windows.
Cut in Two Island West is located in Long Island Sound, Branford, Connecticut, USA and is currently listed on www.vladi-private-islands.de for around £2.2m.
