Nuchatlitz Island, Site 5a and 5b
Nuchatlitz Island, Site 5a and 5b
Nuchatlitz is one of those unique and special locations situated on the west coast of Vancouver Island, within Nuchatlitz Provincial Marine Park. The location is made up of a group of islands, islets and reefs, many with beautiful sandy beaches, tucked just inside a peninsula from the open west coast waters of the Pacific Ocean. The largest and most protected of these islands is privately owned. This is a single title property with 9 shareholders, each of which have a dedicated location for development and personal use by each shareholder. Opportunities to acquire a share are very rare as many of the owners have been long-time residents for over 35 years.
This offering includes two location entitlements on the island, giving protected oceanfront on both the south and north sides. This provides options for moorage and future development.
Sites 5a and 5b are spectacular, one of only two shares which include oceanfront on both the north and south sides. For the most part this property is untouched and in a natural state, except for a small footprint to locate the fabulous residence. This is an amazingly private location and setting, peaceful and tranquil. Both shores enjoy picturesque viewscapes.
The 1400sqft residence is nothing short of superb and the quality of the site development and residence is above and beyond that of most remote west coast cottages. It starts with a full perimeter concrete foundation incorporating some beautiful stonework, situated on bedrock and constructed to high standards and quality of finishing. The exterior of the home features red cedar shingle siding, a metal roof and quality, thermal pane windows and doors.
This is a main level entry home with four generous-sized bedrooms on the upper floor.
The main level has an open floor plan which incorporates a spacious living room and dining area across the front of the residence, where large windows on three sides bring in lots of light and look out to spectacular viewscapes. There is a free-standing wood stove in the living room.
A large kitchen is complemented with a Garland propane gas range and propane fridge - both full size appliances, a butcher block incorporated into a portion of the counter, a pebble stone backsplash, cast concrete with embedded shell countertops and beautiful fir wood cabinetry.
Also on this main level is a 3 piece tiled bathroom with a very large walk-in shower and skylights, and additional storage.
Extensive use of large windows and skylights provides an abundance of natural light and the due southern exposure radiates great warmth throughout the home. Flooring is a mix of beautiful fir and tile with carpeting in the upstairs bedrooms.
Adjacent to the main living area and at the back of the home is a substantial enclosed storage space with a sunroom addition that provides light into the space.
A large deck is cantilevered off the west side of the home adjacent to the dining room and kitchen.
In the crawl space below the home is additional storage as well as access to the plumbing, the mechanical system and the propane gas lines.
Domestic water is from a rain-water collection system. The water is collected off a rock face and then held in two cisterns totaling 4000 gallons which then gravity feed water through piping to the residence. There is an ultraviolet and particulate water filtration system in place.
Septic utilizes a grey water system and a marine toilet. There is also a very nice two seat outhouse just a short distance from the residence.
Electricity is primarily provided through four solar panels and a bank of six 6volt batteries with an inverter. For times when heavier power is required there is a portable 4.5kw gas generator.
There are substantial moorage facilities located in very close proximity to the residence. A well-constructed, heavy duty 40x16ft dock connects to a 40x4ft aluminum ramp leading to an expansive oceanside deck. From there a granite stone pathway leads to the home. Stone steps continue up behind the property and to the outhouse.
This gorgeous property is turn-key ready to enjoy as all furnishings and sundries (less personal items) are included. A great west coast escape!
