The Falkland Islands are an archipelago off the coast of Argentina that is made up of more than 700 land masses. And one of the islands is for sale, in case you’re in the market.

For the first time in 150 years, Pebble Island is for sale. The land mass is 19 miles long and 4 miles at its widest. The remote island is very private, and really only sees human beings for occasional military training and the farmers who live there. The island is also home to five different kinds of penguins and many other species of wild animals.

An Englishman named John Markham Dean bought the island in the 1800s and the family has owned it ever since. No members of the family have lived on Pebble Island since the 1950s, and it was recently announced that the island was put up for sale. Take a look at the video below that details the sale.

I wish I had some extra cash. I know I’d love the solitude…
