A private island on Nova Scotia’s South Shore has been listed for sale with a $11.5-million USD price tag, about $15.8-million in Canadian dollars.

“The Lodge at Strum Island” sits on almost 10 acres off the shore of Oakland, near the town of Mahone Bay.

The three-story home features “uncompromising privacy, and spectacular views,” according to a listing on the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury website.

The listing says the island was “designed with security, seclusion, and self-sustainability in mind.”

Several photos in the ad show a 9,500 square-foot main lodge with a rustic bar, fireplaces, large dining room and kitchen, several bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.

“Needless to say, this unparalleled luxury retreat surrounded by the beauty and grandeur of the Atlantic Ocean is a must-see!”

The home also has a backup power source, the listing says.
