This Remote Alaskan Escape Might Be a Little Too Close to the Wildlife

More

Location: Sitka, Alaska

Price: $2,189,000

This glassy waterfront retreat sits on a half-acre island off the coast of Sitka, Alaska, connected to the mainland by a 150-foot steel bridge. The next buyer might be wishing it was a draw bridge if the family of bears from the listing photos shows up to the housewarming BBQ -- yeah, they look cute, but maulings are a regular occurrence. At least the interiors are plenty welcoming, with a glassy great room, five bedrooms, hardwood floors, and wood stoves. The whole private-island thing has inflated the asking price, though: it's a steep $2,190,000. The artwork, furnishings, linens, and even the pots and pans are up for sale, too, but those will cost even more.
