While the house itself might not be the most glamorous in the world, does it really matter when you’re investing in an entire island to live on?

The listing is described as a “truly unique opportunity to live or holiday in the beautiful, tranquil setting of The Fermanagh Lakelands on your own private island”.

The land also comes equipped with a private jetty and marina set within 12 acres of mature woodland.
