Log In needed $134,500 · 7 acre spectacular property on beautiful DeCourcy Island (nr Nanaimo)Report Ad
All day sunshine on this magical 7 acre bare land forested property on beautiful unspoiled DeCourcy Island, near Nanaimo, BC. This is Lot #4 of 3 lots available for sale which is very private due to a one acre park to the north and a green belt and farm to the west. Spectacular sunsets from the west at the top of the lot on a ridge make this property very special. There is an old logging road running through the property which can be extended to provide an access driveway. A good producing well is available and percolation testing has been done. There are 3 large open mossy outcroppings and many old growth Douglas firs, mature arbutus and rare Garry oaks. Good forest management practices recommend thinning providing an abundant supply of building materials or future firewood. Zoning allows for the construction of 2 houses or a main house and guest cottage. There is ample room for a garden, artist's studio and workshop. The island is serviced by several barge companies allowing easy delivery of building materials. Island property owners access their water either through wells or rainwater collection. Power is generated by solar panels or generators. This is the ultimate in off-grid living!! Boat moorage at Pirates Cove is a short distance away, offering reasonable moorage rates.
DeCourcy Island is a nature lover's dream. Harbour seals, sea lions, gray and humpback whales, dolphins, orcas, otters, blacktail deer all make the island their home. Eagles soar and perch right in front of you high in the Douglas Firs. The kayaking amongst the small islands and passages is unparalleled as well as world class scuba diving. There is good prawning and crabbing in the area.
DeCourcy Island is accessed either by private boat (15 minutes) from Vancouver Island or by float plane (10 minutes) from Vancouver airport, through a service provided by Gulf Island Seaplanes, or by water taxi (30 minutes) from downtown Nanaimo.
