Associated Press
ANACORTES -- Billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has sold a 292-acre island in the San Juans in northwest Washington state for $8 million.
The Seattle Times reported that the property sold on Dec. 20.
Allan Island, named after a Navy hero, is southwest of Anacortes. Data from the Northwest Multiple Listing Service shows it was listed in 2005 for $25 million and slashed to $13.5 million in 2009.
The Windermere real estate agent who listed the property, Wallace Gudgell, didn't immediately return the newspaper's requests for comment on Monday.
Allen bought the island in 1992 to build a vacation home. It's only accessible by private plane, boat or float plane.
