Quadra Island, 747 Pidcock Road
This 2940sqft home is situated in the protected waters of Quathiaski Cove on Quadra Island. It is perched right along the ocean’s edge with an expansive deck that extends out over the water at high tides, creating a special setting with beautiful, sunny south-west exposure. The views take in the boating and wildlife activities in Quathiaski Cove and across Discovery Passage towards Campbell River, with the Strathcona Park mountain range as the backdrop. Sitting on the oceanside deck looking out at the views is an experience that can’t be replicated elsewhere and will bring year-round enjoyment.
The property is just a convenient minute’s drive from the Quathiaski Cove ferry terminal as well as the retail services in Quathiaski Cove, and easy walking distance from both as well. It is an extremely well-protected location and would provide excellent private moorage with direct access from the deck and home.
The 2 story home has been nicely renovated. The upper level has 1 bedroom, a full bathroom, kitchen and the dining/living area across the front of the home. The bedroom, living room and dining area all have direct access to a full-width deck. There is a garage/storage room attached to this level which could have multiple uses. A washer and dryer are in this storage space. The original structure, which is the upper level, is a panabode; these custom cedar homes provide a comfortable, warm cottage/cabin feel.
The lower level is a bright, modern living space with three bedrooms. There is a fully renovated bathroom and the largest bedroom could easily be utilized in other ways such as a family room or entertainment area. In addition there is a second kitchen and laundry facilities on this level, making it an excellent option for extended family or guests. This could also be a good property for a shared vacation residence.
There is an approx. 6ft high unfinishedcrawlspace with powerwhich runs the length of the house, accessed by an outside door. It has shelving and provides ample storage. Windows on the oceanside allow natural light in the space.
The home is on .309 of an acre with slightly over 100ft of oceanfront. Pidcock Rd bisects the property, with the balance of the property sloping steeply up to the back boundary. An area has been cleared along the road for extra vehicle parking.
The property has the benefit of hydroelectric service, domestic water from a natural spring with a conditional water license and is within the recently completed Quathiaski Cove Sewer Service area. The seller has had a recent survey of the property completed, when this is registered the seller will connect the property to the sewer system.
There are no immediate residential neighbours, providing for good privacy.
The foreshore is an ideal location for the installation of private moorage facilities and appears to meet all the requirements under General Permission, which is the most recent streamlined process for private moorage.
A recently installed mooring facility is to the south of the property, providing moorage for one of two new electric ferries soon to be put into service, improving the short commute between Campbell River and Quadra Island. The facility is only for off-hours moorage, not for ferry traffic.
It would not be possible based on current building guidelines to construct a new home this close to the ocean, as the siting of the residence is non-conforming. However, should there be damage or loss to the home the Regional District has provided documentation that allows this home could be rebuilt in its current location.
