DL108 Bute Inlet

DL108 Bute Inlet

This 107 acre property with 4950ft of south-west facing oceanfront is located along the shoreline of Waddington Harbour at the head of Bute Inlet - a dramatic and stunning location, flanked by the Homalco River to the north-west and the Southgate River to the south-east. This is coastal wilderness at its best!

The expansive oceanfront of this property allows for many access options, including areas flat enough for a helicopter to land. Three streams cross the property and empty into Bute Inlet along the shore.

The topography is sloped, but has a more gentle rise than neighbouring properties. A lower bench runs across the width of the property at about 20 metres / 65 ft. The highest rise is to the northern corner of the property at approximately 133 metres / 439 ft.

The property has been logged in the past, and is now forested mostly in second and third generation regrowth.

The same family has owned this property for 94 years. It was purchased by the current owner’s father in 1929 after he had spent many years exploring and working in the area. He was a proponent of large project hydro-power and believe Bute Inlet to be a good location for such a project and thus foresaw development potential in the area. Although that never came to pass, the family held on to the property, logging it at times and using it occasionally as a place in the wilderness to escape from busy urban life. Edmond Creek, a tributary of Chilko Lake, is named after the original family member who bought the property, with Edmond Glacier being named later after the creek it feeds.

This is an old homestead property as well as having had logging industry on it, and there are remnants of old buildings and vehicles on the property as is common with so many of these large remote acreages.

Current zoning allows for a single family dwelling and an additional guest accommodation. This would be an amazing property for a secluded getaway, a remote homestead, or a fishing/hunting base in one of the most spectacular regions of the coast.

This is a boat access property and there are no roads in this region of the coast. Access by water with a relatively quick boat traveling 30 knots, will take about three to three and a half hours from Campbell River.

This location provides ultimate privacy, stunning south-west facing views and immediate access to some of the best salt-water and fresh-water fishing on the coast during certain seasons. Crabbing and prawning is exceptional and mainland wildlife of all types are abundant.

Bute Inlet, at about 35 miles in length, is considered one of the grandest fjords in the world. It is surrounded by the rugged coastal mountains of the British Columbia mainland coast which are capped by the Homathko Icefield and numerous other glaciers. The inlet boasts magnificent coastal scenery and abundant wildlife. This pristine and remote location provides peaceful, beautiful surroundings unlike anywhere else on the coast. It is located approximately 30 miles north of Campbell River on Vancouver Island. Campbell River is a full service community that provides all of your transportation options as well as other required convenient and essential services.
