Winter Harbour, 168 Winter Harbour Road

Winter Harbour, 168 Winter Harbour Road

Winter Harbour is a historic fishing village located just below the north-west tip of Vancouver Island. This quaint little island hamlet has a long history in commercial fishing and logging which is still part of what Winter Harbour is all about, however, during the last twenty years Winter Harbour has been transitioning into a premier and preferred sport fishing destination. The community has road access approximately 1.5 hours off of Highway 19, electric and telephone service and a community domestic water system.

This property is situated on an oceanfront lot only 5 lots over from the government dock access and all the primary facilities in Winter Harbour. These include a general store with liquor store and post office, and fuel service.

The residence is a 960sqft charismatic homestead likely constructed in the 1940 era and still boasts most of the original features. The main primary living area has beautiful old fir floors, windows and doors. The kitchen is classic for the era with all the original cabinetry however there are more modern appliances. The main level incorporates the living area, kitchen and eating area, two bedrooms and the main bath and laundry area. There is a front deck, accessed through the living room, overlooking the Government dock and the waters of Winter Harbour. The upper level is partly done with two roughed in dormer-style rooms and potential for finishing another one or two bedrooms. The basement is undeveloped and used as a storage area.

One of the few remaining historic homes in Winter Harbour, this is a unique consideration for anyone looking for a West Coast getaway. The area not only provides some of the best fishing on the BC Coast, it is also the jump-off point to explore some of the most beautiful sand beaches and rugged coastline along the north-west tip of Vancouver Island. San Josef Bay, CapePalmerston and Raft Cove are preferred destinations for the true outdoor enthusiast. The entire area both upland and marine is prolific with abundant, indigenous and migratory wildlife.
