A rare opportunity to acquire one of only four recreational acreages on Quadra Island within the Octopus Islands Marine Park. This popular marine park sits at the junction of Quadra, Sonora and Maurelle Islands, on the NE coast of Quadra Island. It is made up of a group of small islands which provide safe anchorage for boaters in the region and also attract kayakers to their protected waters. Waiatt Bay lies to the west of the Octopus Islands.

Access is relatively easy through the protected waters around Quadra Island and Heriot Bay on Quadra Island’s east coast is approximately 30 minutes away by boat. Heriot Bay has fuel, groceries, restaurant and other services.
The 10.3 acre property offers a friendly, mixed topography with approximately 439ft of oceanfront with southeast exposure. The property is nicely treed, the forest is mixed second growth after being logged approx. 25 years ago with some more mature growth along the shoreline. There are a number of possible building sites on the acreage.
This 4 lot development has shared roadway easements, allowing for the transportation of goods from an oceanfront landing area at Lot 1. There are also easements in place for access to the wells which were dug at the time of subdivision. 2 perc sites for septic have been approved on this lot.
A one room shed offers storage and dry sleeping space. The shed is insulated and has a window to let in natural light. There is a small complement of tools and a quad with only a few hours on it, all of which are included in the sale.
Offering a number of options, the property is ready to be developed into a recreational retreat, a homestead, or even a family estate.
A communal dock is in place on Lot 1 by the landing area. There is no official agreement in place for the use of this dock, but the opportunity is there to cooperate with the other lot owners for shared moorage.
Zoning on this property allows for two single family dwellings, so there is the possibility of purchasing to share with friends or family. An additional guest dwelling would also be allowed.
