You Can Buy One of Canada’s Biggest Private Islands for $15 Million

Hey, you. Yeah, the one with $15 million to spare. Ever consider buying an island? Well, you should.

Unique Properties and Colliers International have listed a 5,200 acre private island that you can buy and pretty much do whatever you want with.

The untouched Batchawana Island in Lake Superior is almost entirely forested and sits 45 minutes north of Sault Ste. Marie. Assuming whoever buys it probably has a private jet, that’s about a 90-minute flight from Toronto. It is considered one of the largest private islands in North America.

“Batchawana Island represents an opportunity to acquire a significant land holding with extensive timber value and the potential to create a lasting legacy property for generations to come,” reads a brochure for the property. “Additional uses such as a private hunting or fishing lodge, or a more public hospitality style operation are also distinct possibilities for this incredible asset.”

It’s hard to imagine a better way to spend $15 million. Just look at this gem of a location:

Judging by the sales pitch, it’s clear that the property is trying to lure international buyers. Canada is a stable country with a strong and growing economy and a high standard of living for its diversified population,” it reads. Coupled with significant natural resources and its ‘living landscape’, Canada continues to attract high levels of foreign investment – both human and financial capital.

If you’re a Canadian with some big bills to spare, let’s try to keep this paradise in the family.
