Cortes Island, 1309 Gorge Harbour Road

Cortes Island, 1309 Gorge Harbour Road

10.55 acre property with approx. 545ft of shoreline along the eastern shoreline of Gorge Harbour on Cortes Island. Gorge Harbour is one of the most protected island harbours anywhere on the coast.

This is a fully forested and topographically diverse acreage with access from Gorge Harbour Rd. The height of land is approx. 300ft above sea level. The property steps down moderately to steep in many locations, with small benches and rock outcrops throughout. Viewscapes are to the west across Gorge Harbour.

This is an undeveloped piece of property but it benefits from one significant improvement. A driveway access is shared with the neighbouring acreage. This is a hard surface blacktop driveway that meanders through both properties to an oceanfront location just inside the boundary of this acreage. This easement is a significant cost savings, and from it one could create further access to a preferred building location.

The forest on the property is a mix of hemlock, fir and some cedar. The shoreline is primarily broken rock. The oceanfront drops off relatively quickly and would accommodate deep water moorage.

There is currently no domestic water source and drilling a well would be required. BC Hydro electric service is on the road and along the easement access driveway.

Zoning permits one single family dwelling and one secondary suite or single family dwelling with a detached cottage with a maximum footprint of 645sqft.

Oceanfront properties in Gorge Harbour are popular for those individuals wanting or needing protected deep water moorage, and they seldom come available. Gorge Harbour Marina offers the convenience of fuel, a restaurant and a general store.
