Cortes Island, 320 Huck Road

Cortes Island, 320 Huck Road

This appealing oceanfront property is a unique package: a beautiful 12.12 acres with user-friendly beachfront and sunny southwest exposure in protected Whaletown Bay on Cortes Island. The property is located next to the Cortes ferry property - just a 3 minute walk across the property! 

The offering is two titles, a 9.53 acre piece and a 2.59 acre piece, both with ocean frontage. The total oceanfront is 700ft and the property has road access.

The property is beautifully forested in mixed vegetation, including a large complement of majestic old-growth fir and cedar. It is mostly in its natural state with some manicured areas. The entire property is fully fenced in chain link.

The main residence is a modest, level entry 984sqft post and beam style 2 bedroom home with finished living space in the walk-out basement. The main foor features a comfortable kitchen and living space with a wood-burning fireplace. The home is finished primarily in cedar. There is a full width oceanside patio deck on the main level for entertaining and outdoor living. Both floors enjoy beautiful ocean views. 

The basement/ground floor of the home is fully finished. It could easily function as a self-contained studio unit as it has a separate entrance. It is also the location for the central heating system for the residence which is forced air electric heat.

The guest cottage is a very appealing 20x34ft structure tucked in amongst the towering old growth trees. It offers a spacious living area which incorporates the living area, dining room and kitchen with open vaulted ceiling and timber rafters. The living area has a cozy woodstove, large picture windows. There is one bedroom and a full bathroom. Throughout the cottage is durable, commercial-grade linoleum flooring. There is an 8ft deep covered veranda across the front of the cottage and across the back of the home is a concrete patio deck which is framed up post and beam style and enclosed in glass. This space could be used as a sunroom and/or a greenhouse.

The shop is a very substantial structure measuring 75ft wide, 50ft deep with a 20ft ceiling. This is a very versatile structure with power and water. The building is constructed with concrete block walls and full span trusses. There are four over-height and over-width doors across the front as well as one located at each end of the building. It has a metal roof and two steel exterior man doors. The shop will include a 500 gallon fuel tank, a 500 gallon stainless water tank, a 3000psi pressure washer, a 120 volt air compressor, one 240 volt welder, a radial arm saw and a band saw.

On the waterfront is a fully functional and immaculate 16x32ft boat house with 250ft of ways into the ocean and a substantial cradle to easily launch or load a boat at almost all tides. It is in excellent working condition and currently comfortably accommodates a 28ft long by 10ft10 beam boat. There is also a 120ft seasonal dock.

All improvements are approximately 30-35 years old, have been meticulously maintained and are in excellent condition.

This property has electricity with separate meters to the shop and guest house.

Domestic water comes from a 285ft deep drilled well with a 3hp motor with a claimed phenomenal 60 gallon per minute production. There is a second 400ft deep drilled well at 3 gallons per minute, which is capped off for now. The water system has an extra-large pressure tank and an 8 zone manifold, providing water to all buildings and to a number of water hydrants located throughout the property.

There is an approved septic system.

There is a 500 gallon gas fuel tank that connects to a gas line to the boat house and the float, with separate shut off controls. There is a 500 gallon propane tank to service the residences (appliances).

This is a very special island acreage that offers fantastic oceanfront and a variety of improvements in tremendous condition yet is not over-stated or ostentatious.
