This desirable property is located in an exclusive region of the Discovery Islands, on the east side of Sonora Island. Fronting Yuculta Rapids with NE exposure, this fabulous 4.72 acre property boasts approx. 713ft of low-bank, easy access oceanfront and at lower tides is one of the very few properties in the immediate area with sand and gravel beach. It is beautifully forested with large second growth conifers and partially manicured along the shoreline. This is the first time in over 40 years this property has been offered for sale. There are 3 dwellings on the property, all modest, charismatic and in some cases vintage. The original is a one room cabin situated just up from the shoreline on the edge of the forest. The second residence sits at the NW side of the property. This is a modest 550sqft one bedroom with large oceanside deck leading to a suspended walkway over the ocean on to the top of a 14ft+ glacial erratic boulder where there is a 16x16 covered observation deck. To the eastern side of the property at the shoreline is a 760sqft house with loft which was constructed approx. 25 years ago. It has an oceanside deck and lots of windows for natural. Above this house accessed via a walking trail that follows a small creek is a studio finished in wood with natural colouring. The zen garden and pond out front of the studio enhance the Asian flair of this building. There are two significant creeks running through the property and another in close proximity. Propane is the primary fuel source for cooking, refrigeration and lights. The 1930s residence has on-demand hot water. There are three portable gas generators which provide power to the original house. There is a double wood piling situated out in the water fronting the property which is used to secure a dock which is not connected to shore. Dock installation of something more substantial could be considered given the partial protection in this little crescent bay.More details
