Salt Spring Island Real Estate and Island Living
… it truly is for sale.
Nearby Galiano Island is longer but sparsely populated with only about a thousand permanent residents. Galiano, Mayne and Pender Islands (North & South) are closer to Vancouver and the mainland than Salt Spring Island. Prevost Island is located between Salt Spring and Active Pass, which separates Galiano and Mayne Islands. There are also scores of smaller islands throughout the Southern Gulf Islands. To the south of BC’s Gulf Islands are the San Juan Islands in Washington State. They are very similar to the Southern Gulf Islands
Back to real estate on Salt Spring. A description that is actually apropos for a property of that of a section of real estate… Mayne Island is truly an Oceanfront Paradise.
Mayne Island’s tranquility. A sunny pristine oceanfront paradise, featuring a private 64.12 acres, that encompasses a beautiful point of land (all of St. John Point is encompassed, here). Enjoy several sandy & sweeping bays & crushed shell coves, and walk your own forest trails. Old Growth forest here.
Exposures are East | South | West, for excellent all day and all year sun exposure. The very private property features rocky knolls, forest preserves with private hiking trails, an old growth forest enclave, Arbutus and Garry Oak groves, sunny meadow areas, & an historic orchard.
The family, with environmental natures, have respected the land, and it is minimally developed (there is an original older cottage structure, in the meadow/orchard area, plus a well, and the truly valuable aspect is the untouched nature of the land).
Originally one of the Japanese holdings on Mayne Island, this property has been enjoyed as a family retreat, as is, by current owners, since the early 1950’s. It remains in a very pristine state. The family, with environmental natures, have respected the land, and it is minimally developed (there is an original older cottage structure, in the meadow/orchard area, plus a well, and the truly valuable aspect is the untouched nature of the land). This is the very best oceanfront acreage available in the Southern Gulf Islands, and may offer potential for some subdivision. It has the capacity to be kept as a private family compound or create a corporate retreat, or, investigate the subdivision potential of this wonderful oceanfront acreage. It encompasses all of St. John Point, and the view panorama is expansive. Close to Horton Bay (year round moorage), and with sweeping panoramic vistas, this property truly has it all…even Milton might have considered it to be found.
