Singer Kylie Minogue is selling the island home she used as a sanctuary following her unfortunate brush with breast cancer back in 2005. The four-bedroom property located on French Island — about a two-hour boat trip from her hometown of Melbourne, Australia — is expected to fetch close to $2 million US. It also features a wide range of renewable energy sources, since French Island has no piped water, electricity, or gas. From the article,

“Several environmentally friendly innovations have been made by the Minogues, including solar and wind power installations. It is served by a ferry that runs services to the mainland. The decision to sell came as a shock to the island’s 80 permanent residents, who seemed to love their celebrity star neighbour.”

All together, the Minogues have spent more than $1 million dollars on renovating the 222-acre property — including the planting of over 1,000 trees. The grounds also feature an organic fruit and vegetable garden and are home to rare species of birds and a large koala population.
