For $21 million you could self-isolate on this private island off N.S. with its own greenhouse and Lobster Temple

Built by an American after the 9/11 attacks, The Lodge at Strum Island was designed as a secure, luxury, long-term hideout.

In a perfect pitch for the times, when isolation is top of mind but real estate sales are crashing, a $21-million mansion on a private island off the coast of Nova Scotia hits the market boasting it was purpose-built for “security, seclusion and self-sustainability.”

“For anyone looking to isolate,” said real estate broker Mariana Cowan, “you can stay there minimally for a year, if not longer, without ever having to leave the island.”

Built by an American after the 9/11 terror attacks, The Lodge at Strum Island, in Mahone Bay, was designed as a secure, luxury, long-term panic room.

This, however, is not a bunker for roughing it, or some makeshift shelter for preppers.

“The primary goal of the island was and still is to create a safe, totally self-sufficient place where the island owners live without fear of whatever ails the outside world,” Cowan said.
