For those daydreaming of an endless lakeside escape, your ideal retreat is right here in BC, and it’s located on a private island. Best of all? The entire island could be yours for half the price of the average home in BC. So if you’re looking for an off-the-grid paradise that’s still within driving distance of the city, you can’t beat this find.
Loon Island is situated near Lillooet on the stunning Pavillion Lake, accessible just off the Sea to Sky Highway. If you’ve always wanted to access your home by boat – look no further!
The .46-acre island and two-bedroom retreat are on the market for $599,000 – which is well below the average Vancouver house price of $1,270,664 in Greater Vancouver. With that said, the property’s assessed value is just under $400,000, according to BC Assessment.
“With its cozy wood stove, this off-grid property is kept warm and inviting throughout the seasons,” reads the listing. “The solar power system provides sustainable energy, allowing you to embrace a greener lifestyle, while the on-demand hot water system fueled by propane ensures your comfort is always catered for.”
The property includes two accompanying cabins and a large dock to park your boat.
So there you have it, Vancouver – if you need a new property listing to peruse, let Loon Island inspire your next island escape.
