The uber-rich folk rarely mixes with the common crowds. From residing in lavish mansions to holidaying in the most exotic locales, they like to stand apart and away from the rest. One way to do this is by owning your very own private island. So if you are one of those filthy rich folks interested in splurging on a private island, you can definitely not go wrong with Scott Island. Located just three miles across the Stuart Channel from the Vancouver Island town of Chemainus, Scott Island is a lush green paradise spreading across 5.26 acres. A large 4,541-square foot mansion is the main residence on this island. The mansion boasts five bedrooms, six bathrooms, an octagonal great room/entertainment area, an open and airy kitchen/dining/family room, and a separate living room with a brick fireplace.
There is also a 1,644-square foot, self-contained caretaker’s wing with two bedrooms and two bathrooms of its own attached to the main house. The house with wrap-around decks and large balconies for the upper floors makes for a comfy residence.
If you ever get tired of lazing around the plush home, you can play on the island’s full-size tennis court, or go hiking and bird watching or enjoy some water activities like kayaking, swimming, diving, fishing, and crabbing in the waters offshore. But the best feature of the island is definitely the large and protected all-weather and all-tide harbor.
The beautiful British Columbia Island will make for a perfect getaway destination. The island is being offered fully furnished for CAD $4,900,000 ($4,726,800). For more info click here.
