Who hasn’t dreamed of owning their own private island? Living a life of ultra-posh, super-secluded luxury, accessible only by boat—yacht, preferably—surrounded by tranquil water views in literally every direction? Oh yeah.

If you are in the market for just such a home (or want to live vicariously through those who are, at least!), you are in all kinds of luck. Behold the glory of Ram Island, Maine, a five-acre forested isle in Wheeler Bay. This gorgeous property, currently on the market for $1.4 million, has 1,700 feet of accessible shorefront and a sheltered tidal dock for easy boat access, and it conveniently comes complete with a multi-building compound that, all told, makes up a four-bedroom, two-bath, 2,760-square-foot home built around a lovely landscaped courtyard.

The Arts and Crafts–style main house features an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area with soaring beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace, and a huge deck. Outdoor walkways connect to a library with built-in bookshelves; a master suite with a full bath, walk-in closet, and second fireplace; and a guest building with three additional bedrooms and another full bath. And of course, every single room has a water view—as does the separate boathouse, which also has its own screened porch. A Boston Whaler boat is included in the price of the house, for mainland runs and tooling around the bay. I'm ready to move in, who's with me?
