Have you ever dreamed of living on your own private island? For just five-million pounds you could make your dreams a reality by purchasing Kaulbach Island in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Spectacular images give an overview of the 57-acre island which is home to an 11,000 square foot manor known as Osprey Nest, in addition to smaller Beach and Farm houses on the grounds.
Other pictures show the luxurious interior of Osprey Nest, which includes a sun room, offering breath-taking views of the ocean and its very own library with rich-oak décor.
The property was built as recently as 2002 and boasts an incredible eleven bedrooms and a further nine bathrooms.
Despite the home’s relative youth, it is packed with character and authenticity thanks to incredible pine finishes in both the Master Bedroom and Living Room as well as locally sourced and produced fittings and finishes throughout the house.
If the upkeep of the property and vast grounds sounds like a lot of work, there are purpose-built Staff and Nanny quarters, so you can house employees to take care of your every need around the clock, whether it be catering staff to work in the luxurious Chef’s Kitchen and spacious Butler’s Pantry or grounds staff to tend to Kaulbach’s vast greenery.
Kaulbach Island is located close to Chester, Nova Scotia’s famous seaside town and is perfectly positioned in the heart of Mahone Bay, protected from the elements by an array of tiny islands and surrounded by crystal clear water.
If you were to get bored of the meadows, ponds and two sandy beaches on the island itself then there is both a sailing club and golf range close-by to keep you entertained.
If you’re worried about transport in such a remote location, worry no more. Kaulbach has its very own wharf for you and your guests to come and go across the short six-minute journey to the mainland.
If you prefer a slightly more stylish method of transport then the lawn at the rear of the property is more than spacious enough to land a helicopter, with Halifax International Airport just ninety minutes away, allowing for easy access.
