Jervis Inlet, BC Mainland, Rec Site #5 St. Vincent Bay Estate

Jervis Inlet, BC Mainland, Rec Site #5 St. Vincent Bay Estate

St. Vincent Bay is located in Jervis Inlet next to Hotham Sound and approximately 10 miles up the inlet from Malaspina Strait. It is in close proximity to both Saltery Bay which provides access to the northern Sunshine Coast and Powell River, and Egmont and Earle’s Cove on the Sechelt Inlet side with access to the southern Sunshine Coast. Both locations are within a relatively short 15-20 minute boat ride and both regions provide a variety of essential and convenient services.

The offering is for a shared interest in 172 acres within which there are 24 owners in common, all of whom have exclusive use to approximately 5 – 7 acre portions of the property and a common interest in 32.95 acres situated along the northern boundary to the east side of the development.

The interest in site #5 includes 5.28 nicely forested acres with approximately 490ft of diverse, low to medium-low bank rocky shoreline, as well as a 1035sqft 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabin and deep water moorage with dock and ramp. It has southern exposure and beautiful ocean views across Vincent Bay and Jervis Inlet to the coastline of Nelson Island.

The cabin is a unique log and stacked wood structure which boasts a lot of character, started in the 1970s and mostly completed in the 1980s. This cozy cabin is traditional log on log construction on the front, approx. 20x22ft. with 451sqft on a lower living area, and piece on piece construction on the rear portion, approx. 22x30ft. with 584.5sqft above and to the back of the structure. The timber and wood features are classic and provide a true rustic, west coast environment. It has a brand new metal roof and a new extra large cedar deck.

There are propane appliances in the kitchen as well as a traditional wood-burning cook stove. The bathroom has a bath, shower, sink and composting toilet. French doors lead from the open space living area to the oceanside deck, and large windows let in lots of natural light. There is an entryway on the side of the house that leads into the living space by the kitchen, and a back door that enters on the upper level at the landing at the top of the stairs. The three bedrooms are on the upper level.

There is a 20ft x 16ft dock, anchored with 4 inch chain link and made of steel pipe and cedar. A weighted aluminum ramp connects the dock to the shore. This dock and ramp system was installed in the last five years.

In addition to the cabin there is an outhouse, a garden shed and two workshops. There is additional storage and workspace under the cabin as well.

This is off grid living therefore independent power systems are required and propane is utilized as well. A new solar system with 8 300watt panels and a 4000w inverter has recently been installed. There is an on-demand propane gas hot water system. A gravel pit is in place for grey water.

There is an exclusive water license for Edgar Brook for domestic water. There is approximately 3000ft of pipeline which feed two 450 gallon water storage tanks on site. The water pressure at the cabin is approximately 40 psi. The annual fee for the water license is currently $60/year.

The St. Vincent Bay association has been established to deal with the co-owners’ basic requirements. Taxes are shared among the 24 owners and new owners must sign and agree to the rules and regulations of the association prior to completing a purchase.

As a point of interest for those commuting from the lower mainland, year round moorage is available at the Back Eddy Marina in Egmont.

Jervis Inlet is the principal inlet of the British Columbia Coast. It slices through the Coastal Mountain range, narrowly zigzagging over 80 km through stunning granite-walled cliffs and forested mountains. This inlet is the deepest of British Columbia’s inlets reaching depths of over 720 meters or 2,400 ft. and is located about 95 km northwest of Vancouver. Population is sparse on the shores of Jervis Inlet and there is no road access to the area. Industry includes small operations in aquaculture, commercial fishing and logging.
