Tranzon Auction Properties Engaged To Auction Private Island Estate

PORTLAND, Maine, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The opportunity to own one's very own private island doesn't come along very often. However, this October Tranzon Auction Properties will take the rare offering of Nautilus Island, a 37-acre full-service retreat just off the coast of Castine, Maine, to auction.

Tranzon Auction Properties has been engaged to handle the sale of the property, and will conduct the public auction at Dennett's Wharf Restaurant in Castine on October 18, 2012 at 11:00 a.m.

The island became a part of American History when Paul Revere and his men landed on Nautilus while engaged in battle with a British war sloop. Revere is responsible for building the first well on the island, and the well remains on the property to this day. Today, the island offers every modern luxury one could hope for, and recently underwent a four year renovation of the estate and grounds.

"We're delighted to be involved in the sale of this historic property," said Tranzon Auction Properties President Thomas Saturley. "The privacy and amenities that Nautilus has to offer are exceptional - it is truly a unique find."

Now a full service retreat, the grand main residence (complete with infinity-edge pool) is complimented by smaller guest houses and a fully restored barn, along with several accessory buildings that service the island's self-sufficient farm and waterside vineyard. even featured Nautilus' converted boathouse bar as one of the best "man caves" from which to watch the Big Game. Access to the island is via a 5 minute boat ride across the harbor, or by helicopter. For more information, please visit
