Finding a remote place to escape has become a top priority for travelers. But what if you could own a secluded retreat? Well, that will soon be an option as a private island is up for auction with no reserve.
Little Ragged Island, also known as St Andrew's, is currently the largest private island for sale in the Caribbean destination, covering 730 acres. The stunning plot features everything you'd want in a paradise from picturesque white-sand beaches, rolling green hills, freshwater ponds, and crystal blue waters. There's enough room for an 18-hole golf course, several homes, and even deep water access for your superyacht. Oh, and you might see a flamingo or two roaming the property.
When it comes to activities, there's plenty of fishing and snorkeling in the shoreline reefs and several spots to park a boat for day outings. Prefer to stay on dry land? There's plenty of room for hiking to secluded coves.
As far as accessing paradise, it's just a 10-minute boat ride from Ragged Island, home to a private airstrip. So, you can reach the island with no interaction with the public. Of course, you could always just dock your yacht right off the coast for easy access too.
The rare piece of land is on sale through Concierge Auctions with a list price of $19.5 million. But, the real estate company announced that there is no reserve price. So, it could go for less. It's just required you put a $100,000 deposit down.
Concierge Auctions is known for these types of listings. In December, they listed a $100 million penthouse on Manhattan's Billionaire's Row for just $15 to $20 million giving a buyer an incredible opportunity. Perhaps, this Bahamian dream could be the same as smaller islands in the country can go for as much as $60 million.
Little Ragged Island will be open to private virtual viewings online, with bidding opening March 26, 2021, and closing March 31.
