Ever dreamed of escaping the rat race? Now you can pack it all in and buy a private tropical island for yourself – including a four-bedroom home – for the price of an inner-city pad in Sydney.
Victor Island, a private island in the Whitsundays, has just been listed for sale. It’s the dream escape from city life – and rising house prices – and you can literally step off a boat, drop your bags and make yourself at home.
With its own beach, reef and private rainforest, the island also comes with complete infrastructure, so there is no work to be done.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence home features king and queen ensembles, unique retractable blade ceiling fans in the bedrooms and air-conditioning to the master. The luxury kitchen features stone benchtops and stainless-steel appliances, and a Haiku ceiling fan cools the living room.
When you’re not lazing around on your own white sand beach watching whales, dolphins and turtles frolic nearby, you can fish for red emporer and barramundi, or forage for oysters which grow wild on the rocks.
And when (or if!) you feel the need to connect to civilization, the island is set up with 4G and WiFi, and there is a 75-inch Smart TV connected to the NBN network, giving access to Foxtel and Netflix.
You can also nip over to the mainland in the new boat, which is included with your island.
There is also a fully renovated self-contained caretaker's cottage, which includes a new kitchen and bathroom, making an ideal base from which to operate the licensed 'Bed & Breakfast' from the main house, if desired.
Victor Island is currently selling for $3,500,000 and you can find the full listing here.
