Situated away from the hustle and bustle of the boaters that seek out popular Refuge Cove as a stop over on their journey along the coast you will find this intriguing newly constructed oceanfront cottage with its own private dock.
The 1.71 acres of land with an expansive 500 plus feet of ocean front is situated in the middle of a peninsula. (see maps). This unique location provides two distinct bays and entirely different viewscapes. Surrounding the property, including the peninsula is Crown Land which adds to the privacy and over all appeal of the location.
The main cottage was completed in 2006 and was constructed with year round living in mind. The home is 1150 square feet, 2 bedrooms and 1 ½ bathrooms. The living space is an open concept with the bedrooms located on the upper floor. The home is nicely finished and has all modern day conveniences which include; 65 kW diesel generator and solar power generation system with battery storage, propane demand hot water, stove, oversized fridge and cloths dryer. The home is completely wired for 110 amp. Lights and all other modern day conveniences are run off the electrical system including the washing machine and all other household electronics.
Microwave internet and satellite TV are installed and the area has great cellular reception.
Fresh water is provided by a few sources. There is a shallow well and also a waterline installed running into the large body of freshwater in behind Refuge Cove called Refuge Lagoon. (See maps)
The Guest cabin is a 1 room structure that is 13x13 ft. but it is very comfortable for additional family or friends.
The private dock is very well protected and is large enough to accommodate 30 to 40 foot vessels. I believe it would not be too difficult to extend the dock if you required additional space.
