James Island

$75,000,000 – Sidney, British Columbia, Canada

Live like a billionaire on James Island just off the coast of Sidney, British Columbia.  Listed at $75 million, James Island is the second largest privately owned island within the Gulf Islands with 780-acres.  Cell phone billionaire Craig McCaw purchased the island in 1994, which was in need of work after a failed plan to develop a luxury retreat.  Over the past 18 years he’s transformed it into a world-class private retreat complete with an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, a 5,000 square foot owner’s residence, 6 guest cottages, private docks, an airstrip, pool house, manager’s residence, and even a western village.

Celine Dion’s Private Island

$29,655,500 – Montreal, Quebec, Canada

This magnificent stone mansion was custom built in 2001 by world renowned entertainer Celine Dion and her family in Eastern Canada.  The 24,000 square foot residence is being sold turn-key with nearly all of the contents.  It’s set on a private island measuring over 830,000 square feet which is accessed via a private gated bridge with security post.  If one prefers, a helipad can be created to make access by air possible.  Inside you’ll find a grand formal entry, a dining room with seating for eighteen of your closest friends and family, a custom La Cornue kitchen, and a stone wine cellar.
