Hernando Island Site 50
Hernando Island Site 50
Hernando Island is a spectacular 2200 acre island located approximately 80 miles north-west of Vancouver in the northern region of Georgia Strait, just south of Cortes Island and four miles west of the Malaspina Peninsula. Not only is the island an exceptional property, it is situated in one of the most outstanding regions on the southern BC coast, where the Discovery Islands begin and just south of the entrance to world-renowned Desolation Sound. This location is close to communities and service centres such as Lund, Powell River and Campbell River.
This offering is for a shared interest in Hernando Island.
This residential island retreat is situated on the north-east side of Hernando Island, overlooking the northern waters of the Strait of Georgia towards the Copeland Islands Marine Park, the Malaspina Peninsula and beyond to the coastal mountains. This is a gorgeous, private location with tremendous views.
The residence in this offering is a modest older structure with an intriguing and inviting design. The west coast style home is wood construction and primarily all wood finishing inside and out. It incorporates one large central area with living space, kitchen and dining room. There are floor to ceiling glass windows to capture the beautiful views from this central space. At each end of the home is a bedroom, one of which has a 3 piece ensuite. The other bedroom has a sliding glass door leading out to a private patio.
The living space features a wood-burning fireplace, vaulted ceilings and a sliding door out to the deck. The main bathroom is a 3 piece with shower.
There is an expansive oceanside deck on the outside of the home - two levels with stairs connecting as well as leading to the ground.
The lighting and appliances are mostly run on propane, including the hot water tank. There is a modest independent power system that includes a 3000w Honda generator.
The residence is in need of some repair, maintenance and TLC as the structure is approx. 40 years old.
Private boats are typically on mooring buoys. The ocean drops off relatively quickly from this location, which makes for easy access to and from a boat during all tides from the private mooring buoy located just offshore.
Hernando is one of the most amazing examples of what the BC coast has to offer. The island is beautifully forested in old second growth fir and cedar, with a small mix of other coniferous and deciduous vegetation. A few areas throughout provide some grassland. The topography is very friendly, generally level to moderately sloped and there is a network of roads which meander through the forest across the island.
The shoreline is a diverse mix of everything; from lots of low bank, easy walk-on beachfront to moderately higher bank frontage with in most cases easy beach access along portions of the eastern and southern shoreline and a small portion of the northern shoreline towards the east. The beaches range from powder-white sand to rock and pebble, with massive tidal reefs which extend off the south and eastern shorelines towards Savary Island.
Ownership opportunities on Hernando are limited in number and exclusive. The island is very well managed and the ownership is structured in such a way that it complements the peace, quiet and enjoyment of the owners as well as the integrity of the property overall. This is a perfect choice for a discerning individual who appreciates this type of environment, wants and expects some privacy, yet also enjoys a sense of community with like-minded individuals. Share ownership includes a site as well as an interest in the entire island.
Hernando Island is very well organized and managed and there are guidelines with respect to ownership and use that are in place to maintain the integrity and ease of enjoyment for everyone. There are full-time resident caretakers who provide a variety of services and can assist owners with enjoying and maintaining their property as well as maintaining the common properties and the infrastructure.
The common property and infrastructure includes a significant standing wharf and moorage located in Stag Bay. The caretakers’ residence, which is the original homestead, is situated at the head of the wharf amongst beautifully manicured grounds and a community garden. A grass area is used for helicopter access from time to time. There is also a tennis court and a community water system providing domestic water to all residences and building locations.
