HAVE A LOOK TO THE $35 MILLION PRIVATE ISLAND IN THE BAHAMAS, THAT TIM MCGRAW AND FAITH HILL OWNED

A nearly 20-acre private island in the Bahamas has just listed for sale asking $35 million — and it appears to belong to country music stars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.

Named L’île d’Anges, the balmy retreat was the subject of an Architectural Digest cover profile in 2017. The couple purchased the island in 2003, but reportedly didn’t move in until 2012.

In the story, they admit that turning the spread into a private residence required more work than they’d thought. “We set out to build a house,” Hill told the publication. “We had no idea we had to build everything else. We basically had to build a little town.”

That included staff housing, infrastructure for construction crews, water and electricity. So, over the course of a decade, the family — including the couple’s three daughters — stayed in seaside yurts while the permanent home was being built.

The two yurts are advertised in the listing, marketed by Knight Frank, which adds they were initially built as temporary accommodation. The AD story additionally mentions the home is a collection of eight pavilions, which in the listing are described as “pods” that are all connected by almost 5,000 square feet of covered verandas and passageways.

Knight Frank would not comment for this story. It’s not clear if the couple still owns the property, but a separate Bahamas luxury real estate brokerage — in a 2020 published blog post — lists the island as theirs. It doesn’t appear that the island has sold in the years since Faith Hill and Tim McGraw bought it.

The listing adds there are four bedrooms, five bathrooms and, at the northern end of the island, some 6,000 square feet of secondary accommodation needed to operate the property. They include three staff houses, engineering facilities and mechanical storage.
