MERTON — Your dreams of owning an island could finally become true. There is a private island for sale in Okauchee Lake in Waukesha County for $990,000.

For postal purposes, the address is W334 N5965 Road M, Merton. Although you could also say in the middle of Okauchee Lake.


  • 2 cottages
  • 1 boathouse/sleeping quarters
  • 1 hunting lodge
  • 2 outhouses (there are bathrooms inside the cottages)
  • 0.94 acres
  • Countless beautiful views of Okauchee Lake

The property went on the market back in December at $1.1 million but has since dropped to $990,000.

As is, the island is perfect for those who love a rustic get-a-way. Many of the fridges, furnaces, and other pieces of furniture could be considered antiques. In fact, the water comes out of a pitcher pump. However, for those looking for a more modern look, the buildings can be taken down to build a new home on the island.

There is also a parking spot near the dock where you launch from to get to the island. There are also additional spaces around the block.

It is listed by Realtor Brian Fendry of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. For more information, you can give him a call at (414) 467-8626.
