Texada Island, Lot 11 Gillies Bay Rd

Texada Island, Lot 11 Gillies Bay Rd

Enjoy expansive ocean views and walk-on beachfront from this residential building lot on picturesque Gillies Bay, on the west side of Texada Island. Texada is one of the largest of the Gulf Islands, which stretch over the waterways between Vancouver Island and the BC mainland. Sitting just west of Powell River on the Sunshine Coast, Texada is known for its beautiful beaches, great outdoor recreation and relaxed vibes.

This western exposure lot is on paved road with easy driving from the ferry terminal at Blubber Bay. Gillies Bay is one of two main residential communities, with Van Anda being on the north-east side of the island and Gillies Bay on the west side. There is a mix of permanent and part-time residences in Gillies Bay. This lot is walking distance to the general store which offers supplies, liquor, ATM and more. The Shelter Point Regional Park & Campground is at the end of Gillies Bay Rd.

Large trees and native ground plants cover the lot, making it a blank slate for someone looking to develop and still retain some natural beauty and privacy. The property gradually declines halfway down the property and then it is quite level to the walk-on round rock beach frontage.

At low tides Gillies Bay is a wide expanse of sand, allowing for extensive exploring. The bay is perfect for water activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking or crabbing.

There is BC Hydro electric power and water services on Gillies Bay Rd. A septic system would need to be installed for a residence. There is cell service at the property.

A geotechnical report has already been completed by the sellers and is available to a prospective purchaser. The report shows the property is suitable for a single family residence and a septic field.

Texada Island is 50km long and has a population of approximately 1,000 residents, most of whom live on the more developed northern half of the island. This is a thriving island community, with a school, community services, health centre, a boat club, shopping amenities and more on the island. Additionally, there are many community groups for various interests and volunteer opportunities, as well as two district improvement areas for the main community hubs in Van Anda and Gillies Bay. The island is connected by BC Ferries to Powell River.

The Powell River region of the Sunshine Coast is a year-round sea to mountain recreation area. On the doorstep of both Vancouver and Vancouver Island, the Powell River region offers an array of experiences for travelers of all kinds, no matter the season along with a stimulating blend of outdoor adventure opportunities for kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, golfing, boating, hiking, biking, fishing, and scuba diving. Cultural amenities include world-class art galleries, and memorable events and festivals.
