For those searching for some peace and tranquility, and a whole lot of privacy, a beautiful private island in the Gulf Islands just went up for sale for a cool $1.8 million.
Seven-acre Sheep Island lies just east of the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal and sits next door to larger Domville Island and Brethour Island. But its proximity to civilization is only a part of the package; the island also comes with a house, deep-water moorage and 120 feet of dock.
Meanwhile in Vancouver, $1.8 million may buy you a one-storey rancher on a small lot in North Vancouver.
“This beautifully diverse 7 acre private island offers varied topographical & vegetation meander throughout the island & the old growth forest. There is an expansive garden area, an orchard & ponds for water retention,” the island’s listing on realtor.ca says.
Residents would need a boat or float plane to get back and forth from the island, but that is all just part of the lifestyle. As expected, the scenery and views are stunning.
