We’re pretty sure $75 million is a small price to pay for being able to tell someone to ‘get off your island.’That said, we’re considering the Craig and Susan McCraw’s 780 acre island on sale for that exact amount a grand steal (h/t WSJ). It used to be a World War II era dynamite plant and had a population of 800.

Now it could just be you and your friends.

The island boasts a 5,000 square foot main residence, golf course (designed by Jack Nicklaus), air strip, and a warehouse converted into an entertainment centre.

Sotheby’s International ‘s Mark Lester holds the listing.

Maybe its not about the property, it's about its former owner...
