You Can Now Buy a House on a Private Island in Northeast Ohio for Just $700,000


The ranch-style house seems entirely normal from the street.  But look behind the home (at 4999 Laddie Dr. in New Franklin, Ohio) and an entire oasis awaits in the form of a private island.

Howard Hanna Realtor Juanae Carter says this is the first private island she's helped to sell.

"We don't get many of these on the market," she says.

Dubbed Stevenhagen Island by the family of the same name who has owned the property for decades, the 5.5-acre spot on Turkeyfoot Lake currently sports trees, grass and other foliage. However, the property has been zoned for a four-bedroom house by the county health department.

A small footbridge connects the two parts of the 8-acre property and the ranch house offers three beds and 3.5 baths.

The property is now listed for just under $700,000.
