If you're in the market for an entire private island in B.C. (and I mean, who isn't?) then a new listing that came up off Salt Spring Island might be up your alley.
Chads Island is a beautiful chunk of rock and soil located inside the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and is currently listed for $2,975,000.
It has plenty of shoreline, swimmable beaches, and numerous building sites.
There's no ferry that goes to Chads but there is what is described in the listing as a "protected dock" where you can park your boat. Deep water moorage is available at nearby Portland Island. That's where you would park your 100+-foot yacht, of course, then dinghy over to your private island.
While this is starting to sound like an ad for Lotto 6/49, hold your horses! The island has only one 855 square foot cabin on it, and it is rustic. It's connected to an "older septic system."
The listing refers to this structure as providing "immediate utility," so perhaps it could house the help while they build you your dream home.
