Address: 1 Lamb Island, Sechelt
Exclusive listing
Listing agent: Jay McInnes of Macdonald Realty
Few things spell exclusivity more than total ownership of an island. Join the ranks of flamboyant billionaire Richard Branson and Oracle founder and former head honcho Larry Ellison with this one-acre offering off the coast of Sechelt on B.C.’s Sunshine Coast. But if you’re already playing out a scene from Castaway, stop right now. The island is a mere 500 feet offshore from the mainland and is fully connected with essential services such as electricity, cable, telephone, internet and municipal water via underwater links.
As listing agent Jay McInnes explains, “Just park your car at the end of Sechelt Inlet Road and leave the world behind.” Lamb Island No. 1 is the feature freehold island in a collection of three islets in Sechelt’s Porpoise Bay Inlet—just two hours from downtown
