House prices in thriving cities might make us cringe but clearly we’re looking in the wrong places.
Why consider London or Oxford when you could be looking at a whole island in Wales for the same sort of price?
An island in Menai Bridge, north Wales, is now on the property market and it’s giving buyers the chance to own their own paradise, complete with a private beach, a secluded garden area, and panoramic views of the Menai Strait.
And it could be yours for just £1million.
While that might barely get you a decent sized house in the capital, the same price tag could get you a small tidal island.
Named Ynys Faelog, it is close to the Menai Suspension Bridge and can be accessed by car through a tidal causeway.
If you don’t fancy a drive, there is also a walkway leading to the Menai Bridge town centre minutes away where you can access independent retailers, coffee shops and restaurants.
The property has been brought to the market by Williams & Goodwin estate agent and commercial agent Avison Young on behalf of Bangor University.
Ynys Faelog island is split in two, the other half owned by another owner who has a cottage and boathouse on the opposite side of the island.
The main building, approximately 3,800 square feet and standing in around 2.5 acres of grounds, was used for educational purposes up until recently.
It’s made up of beach headland and waterfrontage, slipways, woodlands and landscaped areas and provides scope to develop into what what the agents describe as ‘a once in a lifetime residence’.
Tom Merrifield, Director at the Avison Young Welsh Office said: ‘This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
‘Whoever buys this slice of paradise could build their dream home on the island, subject to planning, or simply use it as a retreat to nature.
‘The island oozes tranquillity and would make the ideal inspirational getaway, for someone who wants to enjoy exceptional views with their own woodland and beach.’
Doesn’t it sound like a dream?
