Read Island, 2.7 acre property boasts 987ft of south-west facing oceanfront in Surge Narrows - a premier central Discovery Islands location. Surge Narrows is at the junction where Read Island, Quadra Island and Maurelle Island meet and merges into White Rock Pass. This is a picturesque and protected location with quick, easy access to services and amenities located at Heriot Bay on Quadra Island or the larger centre of Campbell River on Vancouver Island. This location is also minutes away from the BC mainland and majestic inlets such as Toba and Bute. Read Island has a public dock facility in Surge Narrows and a network of forest service roads throughout the island which provide access to Rosen Lake, located within a 1550 acre provincial park on the south end of the island. This property has been in the same family for approx. 60 years. Current family members have resided here full time for over 15 years, in a well-constructed 950sqft two bedroom oceanside home. As a result of the long tenure and type of use, the property benefits from a variety of unique and essential improvements. These include licensed dock facilities, nicely-manicured grounds, gardens incorporating both natural vegetation and an amazing collection of rhododendrons and ornamental trees, a productive vegetable garden which is deer fenced and an orchard with 19 mature fruit trees. A complement of outbuildings are found throughout the property, including a boat shed, two storage sheds, lumber and firewood storage, vehicle shelter, and a workshop. There is also the original homestead cabin, approx. 700sqft in size and estimated to be +/- 100 years old. This residence is still fully functional and used as a guest house and occasionally for people seeking a unique vacation rental. This is a very attractive and picturesque property with tremendous viewscapes, lots of sun exposure.
