If you’ve ever dreamed of escaping the world and living on your own private island, this is the next best thing. Featuring a “charming” house, two old school buildings, a converted church, a farm and an idyllic location by the waterfront, this whole village is for sale in Quebec and it’s everything you didn’t know you needed.

According to the listing on Remax Quebec, this “opportunity of a lifetime” is located in Austin, Quebec, a small village surrounded by mountains and lakes. Situated on the western shore of Lake Memphremagog, this incredible tiny town borders the Saint-Benoît-du-Lac Abbey.

If it doesn’t already sound like Quebec’s answer to a private island getaway, the property has more than 250 acres of pasture and woodland, 3,800 ft of shoreline, and complete 360 degree views of the surrounding lake and mountains. 

Sadly, however, you’ve got to be earning the mega big-bucks to find this house affordable. With an eye-watering asking price of more than $18 million, this idyllic nature retreat is certainly not within most people's budget!

That said, it can’t be argued that you don’t get plenty of bang-for-your-buck! If 250 acres of land weren’t enough, you also get a church, a house, a barn, two old schoolhouses and several “accessory buildings.”

Better still, if the charming, bright, vintage decor is your thing, you're in luck as this property has got tonnes of it!

According to the real-estate website, Wind-Swept Farm is a unique site, and is “one of the most recognized on the lake.” 

The 1948 house that comes on the land has five bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one-half bathroom, and has enough space to park six cars on the driveway.

If you were looking for a reason to do the lottery this weekend, this property is it!

You can find the full property listing and even more photos on the Remax Quebec website.
