DL1489 Jackson Bay, Topaze Harbour BC mainland

DL1489 Jackson Bay, Topaze Harbour BC mainland

This property is located in Jackson Bay which lies within Topaze Harbour on the BC mainland coast, just north of Hardwicke Island in Johnstone Strait. The property and its location are ideal to accommodate a variety of uses. Definitely a premier eco-adventure location it was originally developed to accommodate the coastal resource sector.

This stunning region is also popular with boaters in addition to those looking for an outdoor wilderness experience.

Jackson Bay was at one time a small settlement of resource workers and farmers, and like much of the coast there is also First Nations history associated with the area. The harbour is a good anchorage.

This 33.7 acre oceanfront property faces primarily east with good southern exposure. It offers beautiful views up Topaze Harbour with long distance views of snowcapped mountains. The topography gradually grades up from the 1351ft of oceanfront in terraces. There are multiple structures on the property all situated in planned locations to take advantage of the beautiful ocean views and sunny exposure.

The property enjoys the benefit of access to a significant network of mainland forest service roads offering hundreds of kilometers through Crown land, other magnificent inlets in the region plus numerous lakes throughout the area abundant with fish and wildlife. This access makes the property ideal for ecotourism and adventurers.

Zoned for both residential and commercial use, the property offers an opportunity for diverse uses. The current owners developed it to cater to coastal work crews in the forest industry, fish camps, divers etc. The main lodge and bunkhouse are set up with commercial kitchens, bathroom and laundry facilities, and common areas. There is also a main residence, a one-room cabin, a sizable workshop and additional outbuildings.

The grounds are manicured and landscaped around the primary lodge building, including a significant rock retaining wall for definition and effect. An ocean view gazebo with a firepit is centered on the main lodge lawn, providing a place to sit and relax while enjoying great views. There is a greenhouse and large garden area enjoying full sunshine and giving the ability to produce a large quantity of fresh produce.

An internal road network allows access throughout the entire property and onto the adjoining forest service road system.

The fully independent and integrated systems on the property include separate septic systems for the lodge, bunkhouse, residence and studio; a significant freshwater source with retention ponds and 2500 gallon holding tank for garden use – sellers advise this freshwater source has been a consistent supply 12 months a year and for 8 months or more each year drives a peleton hydro wheel generating power. This is complemented with an array of solar panels which feed a battery bank and supply an invertor system. There are three diesel generators for back up and times of high demand. There is also a water treatment plant to comply with commercial use and health department requirements. The power and water lines on the property are buried and the gas line to the lodge is buried.

Boat and float plane access only, the nearest point of embarkation would be Kelsey Bay in the Sayward Valley on Vancouver Island. There is paved public road access to a small marina plus a federal government dock loading facility in Kelsey Bay.

The current dock and moorage facilities are reasonably significant, providing 240ft of tie-up area.

This location offers all the beauty of the west coast and yet is easily accessible. The inlet and the waters of Johnstone Strait are known for their abundance of marine wildlife such as whales, seals, sea lions and porpoises and there is also a tremendous variety of mainland wildlife in the area including grizzly bears, black bears, deer and smaller indigenous animals.
