Substantial Vancouver Island Oceanfront Acreage
This property is situated along the shoreline of Rupert Inlet - one of a series of four inlets which make up Quatsino Sound. Quatsino Sound is the northernmost significant inland set of waterways on the region of Vancouver Island. The property is specifically located adjacent to the Marble River Provincial Park just north of Varney Bay and the mouth of the Marble River. This is an amazing location next to a world class salmon river and within a superb region for wildlife, fishing and gathering of seafood. This 99 acre property has a diverse topography reaching approx. 400ft above sea level and from a few elevated locations the views are panoramic for 270 degrees. The shoreline is equally diverse and quite extensive. There is approx. 4920ft of primarily low bank which is relatively easy access as well as some steep bank frontage. There are a couple of bays and potential for good, deep water moorage. Well over half of the oceanfront enjoys due west exposure, while the upper portion faces to the north. There are two creeks which pass through the property. A large portion of the property was logged within the last five years; however there remains a substantial amount of significant and mature timber along the entire shoreline as well as a portion of upland which is in a healthy state of regeneration. The balance of the harvested portion is starting to naturally regenerate. Access to the property is via water or private forest service roads which have been constructed over the years. These forest service roads are limited access and may not be serviceable at all times. Current zoning is A1. This allows for 1 single family or 1 two-family dwelling per site or parcel. There is future development potential as the zoning permits subdivision down to 1 hectare, or 9.88 acres.
