Little Ragged Island – also known as St Andrew’s – is the largest private island currently for sale in the Bahamas. Set to be auctioned later this month with a listed opening bid of US$19.5 million (AU$25 million), paradise could actually be yours to own.
730 acres of well-forested hills and pristine white-sand beaches. 9 kilometres of shoreline. Crystalline blue waters. This is what you can expect at the idyllic location being described as a “deep-pocketed developer’s dream”. But really, anyone could do wonders with this particular slice of real estate regardless of their profession. All you need aside from the requisite cheddar is a bit of imagination. A personal retreat in the making, perhaps; the next globally-renowned 18-hole golf course; a future site for Fyre Fest 2.0 – whatever the heart desires.
Other notable features include:
- 2 x large ponds
- Abundant supply of fresh water
- Excellent fishing opportunities – grouper, snapper, barracuda, tuna, kingfish
- Coconut tree galore
- Fertile soil
Granted, $25 million and above may be fairly steep on paper; although it’s still a considerable discount from the $45 million asking price Little Ragged Island was listed for on a previous occasion.
You can make an offer starting from March 26th until March 31st after coughing up a casual US$100,000 deposit (no reserve price) – virtual inspections are available.
