Multiple lockdowns caused by a worldwide pandemic has really made people realise what they want in life. Which explains why those living in flats are prioritising garden space, or those in the city are moving for a calmer and quieter life in the country.
But what could be calmer than living in a cottage on a tiny island just off Anglesey in North Wales? Not much, you might think.
Well, it could be yours - if you have a cool £900k ($1.2m) in the bank.
The historic home was originally built in the 1700s as two fisherman's cottages before it was converted into a Victoria bathing station.
It is one of just two properties on the little island off Anglesey, North Wales, and has views of the historic Menai Bridge.
The cottage comes with two thirds of an acre of land, including its own woodland and there is a shared slipway.
The tiny island in the Menai Strait has its own pedestrian causeway and, on the shore, five minutes' walk away, there is a plot of land for a garage block and enclosed parking.
It has four reception rooms, five bedrooms and sash windows as well as a curved sun room overlooking the garden. There are two bathrooms and oil-fuelled underfloor heating.
Visitors arrive at a porch area, leading to a traditional entrance hall with a wine store and shower room to the side.
The kitchen and a utility room lie off that, and there is also a study bedroom and a living and dining room with a sweeping bay window next to a smaller library, which leads on to the sun room.
Upstairs the cottage has a large studio and living room bedroom, a master bedroom, two smaller bedrooms and the bathroom.
Louise Docwra, who is handling the sale for Purplebricks, said the property belonged to a retired builder and surveyor who had refurbished and renovated it to a high standard but had now decided to move on.
She said the property would be perfect for a family that enjoys sailing or fishing, as it has its own harbour.
She explained: "I think it would make a great yoga retreat because it's so peaceful; there's only one other house on the island.
"It may also suit an artist because the owner created an amazing studio on the top floor of the house.
"It is in an idyllic and peaceful location but also close to the mainland, making it ideal for people who still have to go into an office or other workplace.
"In the end it's a unique opportunity, maybe once in a lifetime, for a family or couple to live on a tiny island."
