The ‘loneliest house in the world’ on a desert island costs just $339,000


No man is an island, but that may be the exception.

A completely secluded one-bedroom home on a desert island in Maine is up for sale for just $339,000.

Located in Addison County at 0 Wohoa Bay, the property is marketed as a weekend getaway – but only for serious introverts.

Known as Duck Ledges Island, the listing says it is “offered in its entirety”. The property sits on 1.5 acres of land with no signs of civilization.

“The ledges surrounding the island are loaded with seals for constant entertainment,” the listing reads. “As it has no trees, it offers nature views that you won’t find anywhere else.”

The cottage, billed as the ‘loneliest house in the world’, was built in 2009 and has no neighbors unless you count the seals. It offers panoramic ocean views.

The island is surrounded by seals.

Spanning just 540 square feet, the home doesn’t contain a bathroom, but there is a detached port-a-potty on the island for those who want to go on a midnight run.

“Good anchorage and good landing spots at any tide. Mooring included next to the island and a short boat ride from the Jonesport public marina or Addison facility,” the listing adds.

However, it seems that the island is struggling to find a buyer. It first hit the market last June – 295 days to be exact.

Bold Coast Properties owns the listing.
