Big Island, Ontario – CAD $1,379,000
One of Ontario’s largest privately-owned islands, the expansive 31 acres of Big Island are a perfect example of Canada’s natural beauty. Located in the celeb-favoured Loughborough Lake, the island is centrally located and convenient to many major Eastern cities. Big Island is simply the kind of property that people fall hopelessly in love with, and romance has played a decisive factor in many of the island’s previous purchases. The first little cottage on the island was built in the 1930’s by a wealthy American businessman searching for an exceptionally private place to meet with his mistress, and the next owner bought the property as a birthday gift for his wife. The current owner, a prominent American publisher, continued the theme of romance by purchasing the island as an anniversary present for his wife. It makes one wonder who will be the next lucky recipient of this unforgettable gift will be?
