This Private Island Oasis Can Be Yours for Way, Way Less Than You Think (Video)
Montana is one of the most picture-perfect destinations in America. With its sweeping mountain views, plentiful wildlife, and miles upon miles of empty land, it’s a place people can come to find tranquility, peace, and solitude. However, if you really want to up the ante on all that quiet time you could take it one step further by buying this private island located in the northwest corner of the state.
The stunning private island, located in the middle of Foys Lake, comes with 4.29 private acres of land, along with 1,650 feet of its own lake frontage. As its real estate listing explains, owners can enjoy private swimming, boating, and fishing, right off your very own island.
Don’t worry, there’s plenty of fish to catch, too, as Foys Lake is stocked annually with rainbow trout, according to the listing.
If, by chance, you grow tired of the solitude on your own private island, you could always go explore Lone Pine State Park, located just a few miles away. There, you can bike, hike, or take part in other lakeside activities, before retiring for the evening.
The undeveloped island is a blank canvas waiting for a new owner to paint with ideas. And, as a bonus, the island also comes with a one-acre shoreline lot on Foys Lake, which has already been permitted for a septic system and the building site looking toward the island. That means you could always build your dream home on the mainland and keep the island as its pristine Montana land so you can escape the world whenever you please. All you need to do is get in your rowboat and you’ll be there in minutes.
Want in? It can all be yours for $563,000, which is a small price to pay for a slice of heaven.
