THIS STUNNING private island, complete with its own dock, could be a fisherman’s dream for around £1.2m.
Incredible aerial pictures show the heavily forested one-acre island with a beautiful two-storey house including three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Other striking shots show the sleek interior of the house with a spacious kitchen, cosy bedrooms and a living area filled with natural light that leads onto the large porch.
Maude Island is just a short boat ride from Sitka harbours in Alaska, USA and is currently listed on privateislandsonline.com for around £1.2m.
“With lovely ocean and mountain views, this beautiful two-story island home is the perfect retreat to share with your friends and family,” reads the listing.
“Enjoy the spectacular views from the indoors or the expansive decks, or swap fish tales around the rock fireplace.
“The property features three bedrooms and three baths. It is in excellent condition and comes fully furnished and inclusive of everything you’ll need including gear, fishing tackle, and more. It’s “fish on” with a large processing and gear room.
“Equipped with city power, three large water catchment tanks, and a septic system in place, you don’t need to rough it here.
“This exclusive island home sits on nearly an acre of land and has plenty of room for expansion with potential for future construction on the property and/or additional outdoor living space. Enjoy boating, fishing, and kayaking and launch from your own private dock.”
Sitka, a short boat ride away, is Alaska’s fourth largest city by population and is a nature-lover’s paradise, offering an abundance of opportunities for the avid outdoors person.
Popular activities range from kayaking in the Pacific Ocean to soaking in the many hot springs, to hiking through the beautiful mountain trails, to backpacking and mountain climbing. Sitka is also home to Alaska’s oldest cultural and historic national park, and its collection of Native totem poles from all over Alaska.
Mount Edgecumbe, Sitka’s dormant volcano, is a popular tourist destination and a relatively easy mountain to summit. Sitka’s climate is oceanic, with temperatures ranging from moderate to cool.
