Description:  

This is an amazing oceanfront property which combines lifestyle with an incredible investment opportunity.

The property is road accessible from the full service community of Powell River. Population 18,000, Hospital, airport, major banks, building supply stores, Starbucks, and Walmart.

From Vancouver the property can be accessed in less than 3.5 hours.

The 84 acre oceanfront property with over 3,000 feet of stunning low bank oceanfront lends itself well for a family retreat or group purchase with a few friends. Because of the size, distance from Vancouver and access to major services the property is ideal for a recreational real estate development. But if you are not a developer and are just an investor looking for a great investment and a place for your family to enjoy for generations to come the development potential will always exist in the eyes of another Buyer.

Large oceanfront acreages with road access are considered rare today; I could only imagine how rare they will be in the future. The other benefiting factor of treating this as a long term investment is while you and future generations enjoy the recreational aspect over the years the trees will get bigger and in time there will be considerable value in the timber not withstanding the appreciation of the land. All the while the taxes are affordable and great memories are made. In 2008 the taxes were $364.

The property was logged a decade ago and the trees are growing back at a rapid rate but because the property was logged good internal road systems were constructed connecting to primary forest service road networks providing road access to all the lakes in the Coastal Mountain range and the community of Powell River. The road construction and foreshore improvement represents significant cost savings compared to purchasing a completely raw parcel of land and paying to construct these improvements.

A License of Occupation is currently held for the foreshore by the current owner. Although the Crown Corporation Integrated Land Management Bureau governs these tenures, it is not automatic for these tenures to be assigned to a new property owner but because one is already in place precedence is already established and the likelihood that it can be assigned to a new property owner is good. Obtaining the license will allow you to construct a dock or moorage facility.

A freshwater creek likely can be utilized as a domestic water source. It is unknown whether or not the creek is seasonal but alternative options are to drill a well. Drilling a well is convenient because there is a local well driller in Powell River and of course there is direct road access to the property so it is not a big ordeal. Another option for fresh water is to consider a catchment system which is a very affordable solution.

Construction of buildings, installation of services such as septic fields and any other improvements to the property are with ease due to direct road access. There is a large qualified labour force to draw from in the local community of Powell River as well.

Area Data:  

Jervis Inlet
Slicing deep into the Coast Mountain Range. Jervis Inlet becomes Princess Royal Reach and Queens Reach, with a branch to Princess Louisa Inlet and the famed Chatterbox Falls. A popular recreation destination in Jervis Inlet is Hotham Sound, an isolated and protected warm-water wilderness leading off the north shore of the inlet. Hotham Sound is ringed by steep mountains and walls of sheer rock, with numerous tumbling waterfalls - majestic Pacific Northwest scenery! Hotham Sound is named after Admiral William Hotham of the Royal Navy, Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean in the 1790s. The peaceful Hotham Sound is a favorite destination for kayakers, who explore the sheltered coves and bays, and enjoy wilderness camping amongst the Harmony Islands.

Powell River
Powell River a full service community with a population of 22,000 is a year round sea to Sky recreation area. North America’s premiere boating, trophy fishing and diving destination, world famous Desolation Sound Marine Park, award-winning marine and wilderness parks, golf courses, recreational facilities, services, shopping, dining, arts and culture.

Miles of hiking trails lead to beautiful lookouts, waterfalls, or peaceful lakes which can be viewed along the 180 km Sunshine Coast Trail and numerous recreational areas can be reached by logging roads, owned by the logging companies. Boating and sports fishing are ardently pursued as all season sports. Marinas and Government docks are available to residents and visitors.

Powell River is known as the “HOT SPOT” for winter diving in North America. The “Mermaid” at Mermaid Cove in Saltery Bay Provincial Park is an extra special attraction. The area also has some of the largest Wolf eel and Octopus in the world. Canoeing may also be enjoyed on the quiet lakes of Powell River or you can take in the Powell Forest Canoe Route Circuit. Ocean canoeing and kayaking is very popular in Jervis Inlet, the Copeland Islands Marine Park, the Malaspina Inlet with Okeover Arm, and Desolation Sound. For all the nature lovers and sightseers, Powell River has many parks, viewpoints and beaches to explore, and the hiking club will help you take advantage of the many beautiful trails. Bird watching is also unprecedented.

Sechelt
Sechelt's central location on the southern peninsula of the Sunshine Coast makes it a natural hub for business, culture and tourism. Population: 9,224 the thriving village is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and a natural seaside beauty that lends a special charm to the attractions and amenities of the Heart of the Sunshine Coast.

The Sechelt area climate is characterized by mild, moist winters and warm dry summers. Temperatures on the Coast range from freezing in winter to highs of 30C (90F) in summer. The annual rainfall is approximately 100cm (40in.) The Sunshine Coast is sheltered from the open Pacific, and the milder weather patterns result in very light snowfalls in the region.

The Sunshine Coast is split into two portions on either side of Jervis Inlet. Roughly speaking, the southern half between the ferry slips at Langdale and Earls Cove occupies the Sechelt Peninsula, while the northern half between the ferry slip at Saltery Bay and Lund sits on the Malaspina Peninsula.

Nelson Island
Nelson Island is named after Viscount Horatio Nelson, the hero of the British navy, Nelson Island sits at the mouth of Jervis Inlet guarding the secrets of Prince of Wales Reach and Queens Reach. Famous with the yachting crowd for the scenery and anchorages, the area has a lot to offer. It is one of the few spots on the coast where you can feel the presence of the towering Coast Mountains while experiencing the expanse of the Strait of Georgia. It is a region with a mild, dry and semi-Mediterranean climate.

     
Recreation:  

The area is a mecca for recreational activity. Because the property is situated on the ocean, one can enjoy all the benefits the ocean has to offer but what makes this property unique is the ability to drive right from the property on forest service roads into the coastal mountain range and access numerous freshwater lakes, hiking trails, glaciers and river systems.

Some activities include boating, fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, site seeing, hiking and swimming in an area characterised as one of BC’s popular outdoor playgrounds. There are endless amounts of shoreline to explore but one does not have to venture any further than your own dock to catch your daily limit in prawns, crabs, oysters and clams.
