180 Acres with 6400 Feet of Oceanfront, Phillips Arm, BC, Canada


180 acres with roughly 6,400 feet of low bank oceanfront at the entrance to Phillips Arm. Southwest exposure, deep water, sheltered moorage. Year round creeks, potential power generation. Timber and gravel resources on site. Fantastic location!

180 acres located at the mouth of Phillips Arm. Situated on the Eastern shore of the Arm the property has excellent sun exposure and faces southwest. The shoreline is approximately 6,400 feet in length and generally consists of low bank frontage with mixed foreshore from gravel beaches to solid granite. 

There is a salmon farm in front of the property to one side. If you look at the Air Photo that has the boundary plotted you will see where the farm is in relation to the property boundaries. They have a right of way to 1,000 feet of shoreline. The salmon farmers rarely come to shore and the right of way is really only in place to give the farm legal right to be there. The presence of the farm gives you some idea into how sheltered the moorage is and the farm also is a good security measure for absentee owners. 

There is evidence of the old dock attached to the property. In general the area has deep water at all or most locations of the property. Approximately 2 acres of the property are cleared at the location of the dock. This provides adequate room for on and off loading of supplies, equipment and machinery. There are a few roads that are constructed on the property. 

Toward the central portion of the property there is a 5-6 acre cleared area along the shoreline where an old 40-foot trailer is located. One of the previous owners set up a little saw mill. The mill consisted of a 60-inch head saw complete with an edger. The state of the mill is unknown. A few years back when the mill was in operation there was a 25 kW turbine with about 600 feet of pipe burred into a year round stream which fed the property with electrical power. 

There is a significant volume of timber on the property consisting of cedar, fir and hemlock. The lay of the land starting from the shore line goes from flat and gently sloping area which is mostly usable, to high elevations up the mountain side which becomes harder to access and not so practical for use. There are gravel deposits of the property, which are valuable for road upgrading, site and branch development. There are numerous building locations that offer spectacular views of magnificent coastal sceneries and sunsets.

History : During the gold rush in the late 1800’s Shoal Bay, with as many as 5,000 people, was the most populated village on the BC coast. By 1898, small entrepreneurs had staked 200 mineral claims, but several of the larger mines were owned by British Columbia Golds, an English company, including the Dorth Morten and Alexandra mines on Phillips Arm. Before the gold rush, the district of Thurlow was a center for commercial logging. People had lived there since the early 1800’s and one of the largest sawmills on the coast operated at Shoal Bay.
