A mansion nestled on a private island overlooking New York City has hit the market asking $11million.

The six-bedroom Tudor-style mansion is located on Tavern Island, a 3.5-acre island in the Long Island Sound near Rowayton, Connecticut. It was first settled by English colonists in 1651. Later, it was a party palace for the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Maureen O’Sullivan and Barbara Stresiand, according to the Daily Mail.

The 6,100-square-foot home dates back to 1900 and is the main residence on the island. It features two offices, a gym and a steam room.

The property also includes a two-bedroom cottage, a boat house and a Tea House with a meeting room. [Daily Mail]Christopher Cameron
