RELAX and unwind this summer on your very own private island – if you have £10.5million to spare.
Incredible aerial images show the 22-acre island basking in sunshine with the five-bedroom, eight-bath main house sitting near the two-bedroom, four-bath guest house.
Other stunning shots show the luxurious interior of the house with a wine cellar, enormous master bedroom complete with walk-in closet and personal library all included.
This rare offering, currently the largest private home in Montana, features over 32,000 square feet of structures and commands 7,000 feet of prime lakeside frontage on Montana’s Flathead Lake, which is one of the top three cleanest lakes in the world.
The Shelter Island Estate in Montana, USA is currently available to buy for just over £10.5million on privateislandsonline.com.
The main house comprises over 24k square feet with 10k square feet of that being heated porticos and outdoor entertainment space that surrounds the residence and allows indoor/outdoor living and entertaining on the largest scale.
The Great Room features 45-foot ceilings with a 2nd story gallery that encircles the room. On one end of this baronial hall is a limestone fireplace and at the other end, a 120-inch television, custom built into the lustrous mahogany panels.
A gleaming, copper Conservatory is the perfect place to watch Montana wild life unfold before your eyes, in all seasons. It captures year-round natural light and illuminates the space between the grand hall and the mahogany-lined office.
The Master Bedroom Suite is the centrepiece of the main floor with wrap around porticos and porches, a domed ceiling with delicate umber, coved lighting. The mahogany closet, with refrigerator, leads to the expansive Master Bathroom with black and white Carrara marble. The additional four bedrooms are all of the same quality.
If any friends or family should like to visit you on your plush new island then the three-storey, 5289-quare-foot guest room should prove more than adequate accommodation.
The island also comes with a world class Sporting Clay Course and nearly one-mile road that links the shooting course while also serving as a beautiful walking or jogging trail.
There are also three Docking Systems for outside storage and landing of boats. Three computer-controlled tracks transport boats from water to dry dock, without riders ever leaving the craft, or handling a line.
