The equivalent of over PLN 1.7 million costs the island of Île Fraser on the St. Lawrence River in Canada, which has just been put up for sale. Most of its area is taken up by a 125-year-old estate, which is included in the price. However, it requires renovation.
Private Islands – according to Wirtualna Polska – has published an announcement regarding the sale of a small island, Île Fraser, on the St. Lawrence River in Canada. Those interested in purchasing it must prepare CAD 549,000, i.e. the equivalent of approximately PLN 1.7 million.
Island for sale. What is and what is not in the house?
Most of the area of the smallest island in the world (measuring over two thousand square meters) is occupied by a historic estate from 1898, which is included in the price. The property has an area of approximately 180 square meters and has a wide veranda with a beautiful view. The house is built of pine wood. And what’s inside the house itself? On the ground floor there is a kitchen with a refrigerator and a gas stove, a pantry, a glass gazebo, a boathouse and a shed. There are as many as seven bedrooms on the first floor.
Île Fraser – as the website notes – is located about an hour from Montreal, 45 minutes from Ontario and less than a quarter of an hour from the USA. The island can only be reached by boat. However, as “Rzeczpospolita” notes, the location of the island is attractive because it is not in a complete remote area, but at the same time far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city. The island has easy access to the nearby marina, where there are well-developed facilities with restaurants and parks.
To make things not so rosy, it should be emphasized that the property requires renovation, which will involve additional costs. There is no electricity or sewerage in the house. The announcement emphasized that the lack of running hot water was solved by installing a pump powered by photovoltaic panels. The former ice storage room has been converted into a bathroom (an old-fashioned clawfoot bathtub is available) with a toilet functioning as a composter.
