Branford, CT – September 10, 2020 – Page Taft-Christie’s International Real Estate’s Madison office, located at 724 Boston Post Road, announces the sale of 0 Potato Island in Branford, CT, for $4,200,000. According to data from the Connecticut Multiple Listing Service (CTMLS), this is the highest value sale of 2020 in Branford and the second highest throughout New Haven County. The property, which closed on September 8th, was listed by John Campbell of Page Taft-Christie’s International Real Estate’s Madison office. John is one of 100 agents inducted internationally into CHRISTIE’S elite Masters Circle.

The luxurious 3,781 square foot home, which is located on a private island, features four bedrooms, three full and one half bathrooms, a heated gunite pool and custom granite Jacuzzi, boat facilities and a deep water dock, a wrap-around porch and 360-degree water views.

“When it comes to privacy and comfort, this property and its magnificent location exceed all expectations,” said listing agent John Campbell. “It’s not very often that a property of this caliber, let alone one on a private island, hits the open market. Between its breathtaking, 360 degree water views, top-notch amenities and proximity to the Northeast’s two major metropolitan areas, the island truly is what many would consider to be a ‘dream home. This was an amazing collaboration between wonderful owners, Page Taft, The Randall Family of Companies and the international exposure provided by our partners at CHRISTIES International Real Estate. We look forward to successfully closing similar challenges throughout the next year.”
