When we heard about the two islands in the San Juans that were on sale for millions of dollars, we knew we had to get onto one for an inside look.
We profiled $3.5 million Ram Island last week, but it wasn't until this week that we took The Paraclete over to Trump Island, the more expensive of the two islands for sale, at $8.75 million.
Trump is 29.4 acres, and listed by Windermere's Leigh Zwicker. Our favorite part of the listing is where they describe the views:
"Views: Bay, Ocean, Sound, Territorial, and Strait."
In other words.you have views of everything. It's an island for goodness sakes!
Smack dab in the middle of the island is a 6-bed/4.5 bath single family home (one story with a basement), built in 2000.
Property features include a barn, boathouse, deck, dock, green house, patio, workshop, three fireplaces, a walk-in closet, wet bar, a walk-in pantry and wine cellar.
The island technically falls into the Lopez School District - kids, can you imagine taking a boat in to school every morning?
In this day and age, it's all about technology and being connected. While we can't make any promises on what cell service would be like, high speed Internet is completely wired up throughout the island, and the house has an up to date security system (this isn't Shutter Island people).
Check your piggy bank, and then check this listing. And then invite me over for dinner.
