Petra Island, an 11-acre private isle on Lake Mahopac in Putnam County, has hit the market for $12.9 million, Curbed reported. Petra, also known as Petre Island, was bought by engineer Ahmed Chahroudi back in 1949. He reportedly asked the renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright to design a home on the heart-shaped property located in Carmel about 55 miles north of New York City. But Chahroudi realized he didn’t have enough money to build the home that Wright envisioned and built a smaller one instead, according to Curbed. A subsequent owner hired another architect to build a second homebased on Wright’s original designs around 2007. The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, however, wouldn’t give that home its stamp of approval, according to news reports. Nevertheless, Douglas Elliman’s listing for the property, which is held by Margaret Harrington, describes both homes as “Frank Lloyd Wright-designed.” The island also has a dock and a helipad. [Curbed]
