172 Spectacular Oceanfront Acres in the Discovery Islands
Mary Point is one of the most spectacular private properties anywhere on the coast. This amazing undeveloped 172 acre property is located on the southeast tip of Cortes Island overlooking Desolation Sound and the Strait of Georgia. The topography varies throughout the property, from pastoral to dramatic rock outcrops. Ground cover is predominantly mature second growth conifers with some deciduous trees and a variety of typical coastal vegetation, complementing the beautiful natural esthetic appeal of the property. The extensive oceanfront incorporates three prominent peninsulas, one to the north and two to the south. These peninsulas create three bays with sand, gravel and clam shell beaches at lower tides. A beautiful meadow, approx. 10-12 acres, bisects the property from north to south and appears to be rich, arable land. The views reach for 270 degrees and are awe-inspiring in every direction. There is road access to the property and on the property there are access roads throughout the acreage. There are numerous attractive and very private homesites throughout the acreage. There is specific permission in place for the private moorage located at the tip of the northern peninsula. Facilities consist of a concrete float with a welded aluminum gangway. The location provides excellent deep water moorage protected from prevailing south-east winter storms with some moderate exposure to westerly and outflow winds from Lewis Channel and Desolation Sound respectively. There is good cell phone service at this property. BC Hydro electrical service is on the neighbouring property to the north and a right of way is in place to provide power to Mary Point. This property would be a magnificent private oceanfront estate or a group, family or corporate acquisition with the ability to construct multiple residences. It could also be an interesting and exclusive development project.
