Quatsino Sound, WNE Quarter, Section 21

Quatsino Sound, WNE Quarter, Section 21

This picturesque 26 acre property is situated approximately halfway along Quatsino Sound on the northern shoreline. Quatsino Sound is in the upper north-west region of Vancouver Island, an area that provides phenomenal and consistent fishing opportunities, an abundant array of marine and other wildlife, and gorgeous scenery.

The acreage has approx. 1589ft of south facing, low bank, walk-on beachfront with a beautiful sand and gravel beach. The entire upland portion of the acreage is nicely forested and the topography is a gentle to moderate slope, rising to a height of approx. 204ft to the back of the property.

Hawisnakiw Creek flows through the SW corner of the property before it enters Quatsino Sound. The creek creates an alluvial fan and a fabulous wildlife habitat and is home to native coho salmon. It also provides a fresh water source.

The marine viewscapes feature the Ildstad Islands in the foreground and Quatsino Sound beyond. The islands provide protection from southerly winds.

This property benefits from an existing foreshore tenure for a proposed dock installation. The property has an impressive mature forest with a complement of older growth and substantial size timber.

A detailed archeological report has been completed on the property.

This is an ideal coastal property, well-suited for recreational or full-time residential use for those with the desire for a homestead lifestyle.

The property is bordered by Crown land to the east and a private 51 acre parcel to the west which is also offered for sale. It should be noted that there is a one chain (66ft) Crown land strip along the shoreline which will not negatively impact the quiet use and enjoyment of the property.

The Village of Quatsino, located about up Quatsino Sound from the property, 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.

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.
