The 57-acre island is home to an 11,000 sq ft manor known as Osprey Nest, as well as a small beach and farmhouses on the grounds. The luxury mansion includes a sunroom, offering breath-taking views of the ocean and its very own library with rich oak décor. The property was built as recently as 2002 and boasts an incredible eleven bedrooms and a further nine bathrooms. Despite the home’s relative youth, it is packed with character and authenticity thanks to incredible pine finishes in both the master bedroom and living room as well as locally sourced and produced fittings and finishes throughout the house.

Kaulbach Island is located close to Chester, Nova Scotia’s famous seaside town and is perfectly positioned in the heart of Mahone Bay, protected from the elements by an array of tiny islands and surrounded by crystal clear water.

If you were to get bored of the meadows, ponds and two sandy beaches on the island itself then there is both a sailing club and golf range within reach to keep you entertained. Or, if you’re worried about transport in such a remote location, worry no more. Kaulbach has its very own wharf for you and your guests to come and go across the short six-minute journey to the mainland.

The massive property even has its own beach house. Image by Coldwell Banker Supercity Realty / mediadrumworld.com

Those who prefer a more stylish method of transport then the lawn at the rear of the property is more than spacious enough to land a helicopter, with Halifax International Airport just ninety minutes away, allowing for easy access.

The incredible property comes with a steep price tag, but at least we can all still dream of our own private getaway. Learn more about the property here.
