By BBN Staff: An article published on ‘CNBC Make It’ reports that Microsoft co-founder and billionaire, Bill Gates, owns a private island in Belize
The article, published yesterday, gave a breakdown of Gates’ fortune, which CNBC received from a global high net worth intelligence and data company, called Wealth-X. The company said that of the multi-million dollar properties Gates owns, he has a private island in Belize called Grand Bogue Caye, which is valued at about $25 million.
The island, which is reportedly the largest in the Turneffe Atoll, is located around 24 miles east of Belize City. The entire island spans approximately 400 acres.
A real estate firm which specializes in the sale of private islands, Caribbean Island Brokers, has 15 acres of the island up for sale for US $1.1 million.
