John Donne once said that no man is an island, but newly released findings from U.S.-based Coldwell Banker suggest that man still wants to buy himself a piece of one as the ultimate luxury home site.
More than 300 rich households in the U.S. were interviewed for the poll. To be classified as such, they must own a home worth in excess of $1 million dollars and have an equal amount of liquid assets to invest.
27% responded that their dream home would be located on an island while another 22% preferred a more rustic setting and only 18% selected a suburban or foreign location.
Interesting that many of these choices seem to reflect a desire to escape — or at least get away — rather than become more connected.
