Cortes Island, 185 Seavista Road

Cortes Island, 185 Seavista Road

This beautiful 7 acre oceanfront property is located on the southwest shoreline of Cortes Island only minutes from the ferry service in Whaletown Bay. The property enjoys sunny, south-west exposure, amazing views and excellent privacy.

After 47 years of ownership the owner has made the decision to offer this exceptional property for sale.

This acreage offers a diverse topography and is fully forested including some ancient old growth fir and cedar trees. There is also a beautiful meadow with fruit trees. Easy walking trails lead to the oceanfront and through the trees.

The approximately 1,200 feet of diverse shoreline includes beautiful granite outcrops and two small bays. This is stunning oceanfront, getting lots of sun and with expansive views across to Quadra Island and the mountains of Vancouver Island. The location provides for spectacular sunset viewing.

The property has BC Hydro electrical service, a drilled well for domestic water and spring water from a licensed source.

The improvements on the property are modest. Down by the water is a rustic 840 ft cottage with open interior including a fridge, stove and sink along one wall, and a large oceanside deck. By the meadow is a 31 by 31.5 foot barn with a loft which has been partially finished as a studio suite with a large sundeck on the southern side. There is one other building that is a shell of an additional dwelling.

This prime location offers many desirable features and benefits for the development of an island residence or vacation retreat. Zoning permits two residences and two guest cottages.

Cortes Island has a population of around 1000 people. A relaxed rural lifestyle is evident throughout. Amenities and services include general stores, fuel services, seasonal restaurants, a public school (K-9) and a medical clinic. The island provides sandy beaches, gorgeous lakes and miles of shoreline to explore.

The Discovery Islands are considered a major gateway to the very popular Desolation Sound region. For the outdoor enthusiast it is one of the best jumping off points for a variety of outdoor activities including fishing, prawning, kayaking and hiking.

Access to Cortes Island is a 45-minute trip via regularly scheduled ferry service from Heriot Bay on Quadra Island. QuadraIsland is a short 10-minute ferry ride from Campbell River.  During the summer months there is also regular float plane service from Vancouver and Seattle directly into Cortes Bay.
