Completely private and set up for year-round living. 860 ft of low bank waterfront with 2,170 sq ft, 3 bdrm, 3 bath West Coast style home. Includes large wrap-around sundeck with tons of outdoor living space and 40 ft dock with protected deep water moorage.
Properties on Hardy Island are highly desired because of the convenient location and what the stunning surrounding area has to offer. Hardy Island is easily accessed in protected waters from both the upper and lower Sunshine Coast.
This is one of the nicer properties on the island given its location, exposure and size. The property is situated in a bay that is protected from the prevailing winds and it gets great sunlight.
The waterfront is solid granite which works its way into smaller rocks and pebbles as you work your way to the Western property boundary. The majority of land has an overall gentle rise to the rear with a large amount of useable land. There is, however, a small portion of the property at the Western boundary that has a fairly significant rise.
Above the private dock is a landing area large enough to back up a vehicle and there is a good quality driveway to the home which is a few hundred feet away. There is also a short staircase for daily walking use from the dock to the home that cuts the distance in half. The driveway continues from the home to the main road network which connects all the properties on Hardy Island.
The land is forested throughout and the current owner has kept the trees in front of the home for privacy. You cannot see the home from the water until you get right up to the dock. There is a good view from the home, but the option exists to limb the trees to open up a spectacular view.
The house faces northwest overlooking a few small islands toward Thunder Bay and the mainland’s Coastal Mountain Range. Given its location and the large wrap-around deck, you can seek sun or shade and still capture amazing views throughout the year.
The level entry main floor has a large open concept living space with lots of natural light. This is accented by the vaulted ceiling over the living room, dining room and kitchen. Down the hallway there is a large master bedroom with ocean views featuring a walk through closet and 3 piece en-suite. Large French doors open up to the front deck and the wood burning hot tub is only a few steps away.
Across the hall from the master is a spacious second bedroom. The main floor also has a full bathroom complete with glass shower, and a washer and dryer.
The second floor is accessed from the living room. It also has vaulted ceilings, many windows and ocean views. There is also a large bonus room, a third bedroom and a 2 piece bathroom.
The home is tastefully finished with maple floors and cabinets. A large wood stove in the living area sufficiently heats the home at any point in the year. It was constructed by a very reputable local builder and is situated on a concrete perimeter foundation which is formed to the natural contours of the bedrock.
The roof is metal and the cedar siding matches the natural environment. In addition, there is a sauna situated on the deck, all great reasons to use the property any time during the year. We encourage you to come and take a look, as it is a very clean property that is ready to use today! urage you to come and take a look, as it is a very clean property that is ready to use today!

The Island is also unique because there are no mountains or major elevation rises, so most properties have excellent sunlight year-round for all residents. There is an internal road network which connects all the properties and most neighbors visit by quad or side-by-side. The road provides a great place to stretch your legs and get some exercise. Children will love it as a place to explore, build forts and ride bikes.
Typically, there are no predatory animals on the Island which provides a safe environment for all to use and enjoy.
Hardy Island is named after Vice Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy. It is a sanctuary well sought after for its natural beauty, privacy, sheltered warm waters and abundance of marine wildlife. It is a recreational retreat that is easily accessed in a short period of time. Nelson Island is named after Viscount Horatio Nelson, the hero of the British Navy, and sits at the mouth of Jervis Inlet guarding the secrets of Prince of Wales Reach and Queens Reach.
Both Islands are famous with the yachting crowd for the scenery and anchorages in Blind Bay and Telescope Pass. The area has a lot to offer and 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.
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, which are owned by 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 River Forest Canoe Route Circuit. Ocean canoeing and kayaking is very popular in Jervis Inlet, the Copeland Islands Marine Park, Malaspina Inlet with Okeover Arm and Desolation Sound.

Bird watching is also unprecedented.
