Beautiful 12.12 acres with user-friendly beachfront and sunny sw exposure in protected Whaletown Bay on Cortes Island, with 700ft oceanfront. Beautifully forested in mixed vegetation, including a large complement of majestic old-growth fir and cedar. Mostly in its natural state with some manicured areas and fully fenced in chain link. The main residence is a modest, level entry 984sqft post and beam style 2 bedroom home with finished living space in the walk-out basement. The guest cottage is a very appealing 20x34ft structure tucked in amongst the trees. It offers a spacious living area which incorporates the living area, dining room and kitchen, one bedroom and a full bathroom. The shop is substantial, measuring 75ft wide, 50ft deep with a 20ft ceiling, with power and water. There are 4 over-height and over-width doors across the front as well as one located at each end of the building. The shop will include a 500 gallon fuel tank, a 500 gallon stainless water tank, a 3000psi pressure washer, a 120 volt air compressor, one 240 volt welder, a radial arm saw and a band saw. On the waterfront is a fully functional and immaculate 16x32ft boat house with 250ft of ways into the ocean and a substantial cradle to easily launch or load a boat at almost all tides. There is also a 120ft seasonal dock. BC Hydro electricity with separate meters to the shop and guest house. Domestic water comes from a 285ft deep drilled well with a 3hp motor with a claimed phenomenal 60 gallon per minute production. There is a second drilled well, which is capped off for now. The water system has an extra-large pressure tank and an 8 zone manifold, providing water to all buildings and to a number of water hydrants located throughout the property. There is an approved septic system. This is a very special island acreage that offers fantastic oceanfront and a variety of improvements in tremendous condition yet is not over-stated or ostentatious.
