Young Island

Nova Scotia | Canada East/Central

For sale: Discover Nova Scotia’s premiere private island


Located within Nova Scotia’s picturesque Lunenburg County, this pristine private island is a window to another world – a land that time forgot. Comprising of nearly 80 acres of rolling fields and boasting an impressive mile long stretch of ocean frontage, it’s no wonder that Young Island counts amongst the best private islands for sale in Nova Scotia. However some small parts of the island are owned by others.

Set apart from the mainland by the mysterious waters of the Atlantic, yet still within easy reach of the mainland at Indian Point, it only takes a matter of minutes to swap civilization for idyllic island life. Sheltered coves offer deep anchorage, with permanent moorings and the island’s large wharf offering space for several further vessels.

Once the last working saltwater farm amongst Mahone Bay’s large island community, the island continued to be farmed with oxen until as recently as 1972. The island is dotted with many souvenirs of this time, including a series of winding wooded pathways, miles of rambling stone walls and a breathtaking landscape which is as diverse as it is well-tended.
The main house and guest house form further mementoes of Young Island’s agricultural past. Built in 1874 and recently renovated to make the most of its rustic charm. Very much capturing the charm of yesteryear, both of the main house and the guest house boast their original frames – a vital step in retaining their unique, antique character.
Blessed with plenty of natural light, the interior of these stunning properties is fabulously bright and airy; spreading across each home’s three bedrooms, three bathrooms and open living areas. Further to the two houses, Young Island is also home to a boathouse, a garden shed and a magnificent verandah, promising panoramic views of the lilacs, rosebushes and apple orchards beyond.
Connected to the national power supply via underwater cables, the island is also home to both satellite television and the internet.
