Quatsino, E-910 Quatsino Road (Lot 11)

Quatsino, E-910 Quatsino Road (Lot 11)

34.59 acre property located at the north-east end of the Village of Quatsino in Hecate Cove. The Village of Quatsino is a quaint, 120 year old historic coastal, boat-access community situated almost in the centre of Vancouver Island in the heart of four substantial inlets which make up the region of Quatsino Sound.

The entire property has a beautifully regenerated forest, approx. 40 years old, with a mix of hemlock, fir, cedar and alder. The topography is diverse and generally user-friendly. A higher elevation bluff provides partial views of Hecate Cove and a valley sits towards the northern rear property boundary. This is an inland acreage, however it borders the local road which is only steps away from public beach access.

There is a one-room 16x24ft cabin situated well back on the property. This is a solid structure with a metal roof. It is fully insulated. Fir shiplap boards in the interior and exterior. Kitchen cabinetry with upper and lower cabinets. There is a wood stove for heat however no services connected to the cabin.

There is a drilled well on the property with legal access to a second well on Lot 2 nearby. Hydro-electric power is available at the road.

The existing trail access from Quatsino Rd to the cabin location crosses a neighbouring property, without an easement. This has existed without contest for years, however cannot be guaranteed in perpetuity. Therefore, a new owner may need to be prepared to reconstruct an access on the portion of the property which directly meets the road.

Although the property itself does not front the ocean it is steps away from water access on the road. Anchoring in this location or possibly putting an application to the Crown for upland owner’s consent for moorage could be investigated. The Government Dock in Bergh Cove is a great location for loading and off-loading equipment and material.

In addition to one single family home, zoning would also permit additional 400sqft cabins, up to one cabin per every 2 acres of land.

Colony Lake where there is good trout fishing, hiking and swimming is only a few kilometres from the property.

If you’re looking for a peaceful island retreat this 34 acres located in the Village of Quatsino would be a great consideration.

The Village of Quatsino is a historical boat-access coastal community founded in the late 1800s, with a current population of approximately 40 year-round residents plus a complement of part-time and seasonal vacationers. Coal Harbour is 9 miles south of Port Hardy and Quatsino is situated only 5 miles south from Coal Harbour by boat.

The community is serviced with a local road, hydro electricity and telephone (both land line and cell service). This active community offers a museum, community garden, historical society, church, community events, fishing charters and lodges, and even a local pizza delivery service.

Quatsino Sound, one of the last great west coast frontiers easily accessible for the outdoor enthusiast and avid sport-fisherman, offers a great variety of activities throughout the network of protected inlets and the access to the open west coast. As well there are numerous rivers and lakes abundant with trout, steelhead and spawning salmon in the fall. Seventeen miles to the southwest out Quatsino Sound is the open west coast of Vancouver Island that offers spectacular fishing for salmon, halibut and other species. The marine life and other wildlife in addition to the beauty of the west coast are unsurpassed.
