If you already have big bucks in your bank account, here's your chance to make the own-your-own-island dream come true - or keep this opportunity in mind in case you imminently hold the winning ticket for Lotto 649!

Located in the Canadian Atlantic province of Nova Scotia, in proximity to the idyllic fisherman's town of Lockeport, this property is a 2 hour drive from Halifax, the capital city of the province with its international airport.

Cranberry Island comprises 33 acres of lush vegetation on glaciated bedrock that rises from its sandy beach front to its peak at around 15metres high. The property has two fresh water sources, and an electricity connection from the mainland.  The property has superb accessibility (one can actually walk the 200 feet to the island during low tide), with a number of nature paths well-established.

Offered for sale for $1,175,000; the property includes a charming residence with panoramic ocean and forest views! Perched on one of the island's highest elevations, the hilltop hideaway boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 washrooms spread over 2,600 square feet. Constructed in 1979, the dwelling certainly serves up some serious cottage-y charm, but if you prefer a more contemporary shelter, there are any number of exceptional east coast architects who can help you turn this place from comfy to captivating!
