We have to go back to the island. Hawaii, that is.
If you’re a fan of the J.J. Abrams ABC series Lost, the perfect island home is waiting for you. The famous Dillingham Ranch, located on the North Shore of Oahu, is now up for sale for $45 million.
The ranch has been used as a filming location for a number of TV shows and films, including Hawaii Five-O and "50 First Dates," but would perhaps be recognizable as the famous island in Lost, according to the Daily Mail. The 18.8-acre oceanfront parcel and 2,721-acre working ranch served as a location for many of the jungle scenes in the show’s first and second seasons.
The property is being sold by Hawai‘i Life and Cushman & Wakefield, and stretches from Kai‘ahulu Beach to the ridgeline of the Waianae Mountain range, on the edge of the Mokulē‘ia Forest Reserve, according to the property listing. The home has an incredible 1,125 linear feet of oceanfront to enjoy.
In addition, the property has a 3,000 square foot house with eight bedrooms and a professional-sized kitchen — so you won’t have to rough it in the jungle like the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815.
The expansive property is also home to polo fields, Hawaii’s largest coconut grove, places for cattle grazing, farming, and horseback riding, according to the Daily Mail. In addition to being a film set, the property is also an excellent location for large events (while also being secluded enough for people who are looking for their own slice of island paradise).
Famous people who’ve come to Dillingham Ranch over the 123 years include Noel Coward (who apparently wrote "A Room With A View" there), Prince Charles, Eva Gabor, and General George S. Patton, according to the ranch’s website.
