Ontario Private Island Is Cheaper Than A Toronto Home

Have you been thinking about moving away from the hustle and bustle of city life and want somewhere near the water? If you're looking to be completely secluded from the rest of the world and sip your morning coffee near the lake every day, we have the perfect listing for you. You can now buy an entire private island in Ontario and it's way cheaper than a Toronto home. 

Yes, you heard that right. For cheaper than a Toronto home, the entire private island could be yours. With 1.05 acres of land, Bailey Island, located just west of the Township of Kirkup, Ontario is currently looking for a new owner. 

Featuring a full panoramic view of Andrew Bay, this piece of land has everything you would want in your own personal island. Not only does it have a two-bedroom cottage for yourself, featuring all of your amenities including an open design kitchen, but there is also a guest cottage! 

Bring your friends to your private island where they can set up camp at their 1 bedroom detached guest cottage with a full wrap-around deck. 

When it comes time for dinner, you and your friends can gather at the lakeside gazebo that is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunset while entertaining your guests.

The island also comes with a huge dock that is perfect for suntanning by the water and has space to park two boats for all of your adventuring needs. 

Century 21 also states that the private island is located just 15 km south from downtown Kenora, which means if you ever get bored from being secluded from the rest of the world, it would be easy to head into civilization. 

If this sounds like the perfect summer getaway for you, it could all be yours for the low price of $399,900 which is cheaper than most Toronto homes! 

While this certainly isn't the cheapest real estate property out there, when it comes to Toronto real estate pricing, this seems like a steal. 

A new study done this summer revealed that the price of homes in Toronto has actually skyrocketed. In fact, the average price for a home in the Leaside area was $2.1 million, while those in the Trinty-Bellwoods area were as high as $1.9 million. 

With an entire private island being a fraction of the cost, it seems like the best way to go. 

However, one thing to note is that winters with a private island can be a bit difficult. With the listing stating that the home is "seasonal," you may have to find somewhere else to live during those wintery months.
