If you lived on this striking private island in Lake Champlain, you probably wouldn't even mind having a roommate.
Cedar Island, an 8.4 acre property that had previously been listed at $1.7 million, will be sold at or above $850,000 when it's auctioned off by Concierge Auctions on October 12.
For a little bittersweet perspective, the current median price of a one-bedroom condo in Manhattan is $992,000. So, if you were looking to make a big life change—or find the perfect place to set a closed-door murder mystery—now's your chance.
The main residence on the island has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, vaulted pine ceilings, cherry hardwood floors and, one assumes, plenty of secrets. Oh, and there's a hot tub.
