'World's loneliest house' on a deserted island goes on sale for ₹2.5cr in US; pic viral
A lonely house on a deserted island has gone on sale.
The one-bedroom property, which sits on Wohoa Bay in Maine, US, has hit the market for $339,000 (Rs 2.58 crore).
The abode is being pegged as the 'world's loneliest home' and an 'introvert's paradise'.
The house is located on the Duck Ledges Island, which is 1.5 acres in size and without any signs of civilization.
"The ledges surrounding the island are loaded with seals for constant entertainment. As it has no trees, it offers views of nature that you can’t find anywhere else," the listing states.
The house was built in 2009 and has remained in good shape for over a decade now. Even though it is far away from civilisation, the island has a fully-functional WiFi.
The place is basically a paradise for those who love to alongside the coast. The listing states that the island is a short boat ride from Jonesport public marina or Addison facility.
The 540-square-foot house is fully furnished and offers stunning panoramic ocean views. The walls are made of wood and the windows have timber frames to enhance the property's rustic beauty.
Billy Milliken, an agent with Bold Coast Properties who currently owns the property, said there will be no problem with flooding because the house sits on stilts.
There is one problem. The plumbing system on the island is outdated, meaning there is no indoor bathroom on the main property.
"It makes you feel small when you're on the island. The seals, the seabirds, the eagles, and the noises they make at night. And what’s interesting about an island with no trees, you really get that sense of how small you really are," said Milliken
Back in 2020, a picturesque house on a remote island went viral on social media because netizens said it was the best place to live amid a pandemic.
However, there were people who said that they would struggle with loneliness if they were to live in the house.
According to a rumour, the isolated property was built by a billionaire who planned to move there in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
