For just the third time in nearly a century, the enormous Salutation Island has hit the market. For $125 million, you’d own the island’s six homes and over 85 acres of land and water, according to Bloomberg.

The estate is located on the North Shore of Long Island and was first owned by J.P. Morgan’s grandson, Junius Spencer Morgan III. Its most recent owner was socialite and real estate broker Margo Walker.

Below are highlights of the island and its amenities, which include a 27,000-square-foot mansion, 250-foot-long dock, horse stables, and an eight-car garage. The property is being sold by Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Let’s take a look around.


Less than an hour from New York City, the island is more than 85 acres.

After a few decades, Morgan started feeling a little lonely on the island, so he let some of his friends build houses there. This one is known as the “Creek House.”

It’s no surprise that the other residents also built pools.

While the other homes are smaller than the Manor House, they were designed with a similar level of luxury in mind.

Ornate furniture, carpets, and wood paneling are common throughout the island.

The other homes tend to favor (slightly) more minimalist designs than the Manor House, however.

And, in some cases, they opted for brighter colors and more natural light …

… as evidenced by the “Pond House.”

The island also contains three smaller cottages.

Of course, they won’t seem too small to anyone used to living in a cramped apartment.
