Anti-social dream cottage on tiny island with one neighbour on market for £900k

A five bedroom cottage in North Wales offers the chance to live on a tiny island with nearly no neighbours, all for a cool £900k.

As people have been stuck indoors and working from home for over a year, the demand for countryside homes has increased. More people are ditching the busy city life for wide open spaces and wilderness.

This home offers exactly such a lifestyle, as the a tiny island just off Anglesey in North Wales, surrounded by dense trees and just one other property sharing the island.

For £900k, this cottage comes with two thirds of an acre of land, and includes its own woodland along with a shared slipway, LADBible reports.

Originally built in the 1700s, this residence acted as two fisherman's cottages before it was converted into a Victoria bathing station. This means that the this property is perfect for families that enjoy fishing and sailing, as the island has its own harbour.

The home offers incredible views of the historic Menai Bridge, while the island has its own pedestrian causeway that's also a five minute walk from the shore.

While the bridge is too narrow for vehicles, the property also includes a plot of land for a garage block and enclosed parking.

The cottage itself is massive, with four reception rooms, five bedroom and two bathrooms. The house is heated by an underfloor heating system powered by oil.

The residence formerly belonged to a retired builder and surveyor, who then refurbished and renovated it before putting it on sale.

Louise Docwra, a local sales expert for Purplebricks, said that the property would be perfect for an artist because the owner created an amazing studio on the top floor of the house.

She said, 'I think it would make a great yoga retreat because it's so peaceful; there's only one other house on the island.

'It is in an idyllic and peaceful location but also close to the mainland, making it ideal for people who still have to go into an office or other workplace.

'In the end it's a unique opportunity, maybe once in a lifetime, for a family or couple to live on a tiny island.'
