It’s been a while since we’ve talked about a private island for sale, but we’ve come across a real stunner this week! Whitestone Island is located on the northern part of the Sunshine Coast and offers an incredible mix of rugged beauty with modern amenities. Let’s check it out!
Located near the community of Madeira Park, Whitestone Island has 6 acres of land to its name, making it one of the largest privately held islands in the region. While it’s a trek to get there by boat, we’re sure that whoever buys this will simply organize a 30-minute seaplane ride to get to their home away from home.
As for the home on it, you can expect a high-quality design without stepping into gaudy territory. At 2,500 square feet, the home offers 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, making it perfect for impromptu visits from your friends (just don’t pay for them to get there). Plus, this home was only built in 2013, so it’ll be a while before any upgrades are needed.
Meanwhile, it uses an open floorplan and has 270-degree views of the Georgia Strait beyond. We’ll be the first to admit it- waking up on your own private island for a cup of coffee (or tea) on the deck sounds like an absolute dream. Pair that with a couple of local bald eagles, and this property is perfect for just about any nature lover out there.
Fortunately, the home also comes with modern amenities. You’ve got your own secure private dock for your speedboat, plus direct connections for municipal power and water. Yeah, no running out to the outhouse or collecting rainwater for your shower at this spot, which is more than the average private island can claim.
Of course, all this convenience and beauty comes at a pretty hefty price. Whitestone Island is currently listed at $4,500,000. And while it’s a serious chunk of change, it’s also the cost of a mid-level family home in some of Vancouver’s most prestigious neighbourhoods. Private island, or living in Shaughnessy? Hm, seems like a pretty easy choice to us.
