1/18 Interest in 186 acres. Ideal oceanfront home with private dock situated in Refuge Cove at the entrance to Desolation Sound Marine Park. Western exposure, excellent deep water moorage at a very reasonable price.
This is a fantastic oceanfront property with home and private dock. Situated within the protection of Refuge Cove the 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home is western exposed and is perfectly situated on a nice level location of the property. The home which was constructed in the mid 1970s is very well constructed. The main floor needs some finishing work however this can be done at your own pace as the home if fully equipped and functional. There is a nice basement where the current owner spends a lot of time working away on projects. This space is likely one of the nicest workshops that I have seen in such a remote location. In the summer months it also stays cool which is a really nice feature. The home has a new roof. This some repairs and maintenance that are needed but overall is in good condition. A diesel generator is the main power source for the property. There is a battery storage and inverter system which stores the power. A wood stove provides heat and the appliances are propane.
On the foreshore there is a 50 foot dock with a new aluminum ramp. The moorage is excellent offering both great shelter and deep water moorage.

Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park
About 70 people live year-round on this pearl of an island, which looks like it floated up from the South Seas. Unlike most Gulf Islands, Savary runs east-west and is really an 8 km clay ridge covered in sand. The south shore has the strait winds so it has big rollers and attracts surfers. The biggest arbutus tree in BC is located on the north shore of the island. The residents voted against having electricity. There is a public wharf and floats at Keefer Bay.
