Island jewel! Rare opportunity to own a piece of BC’s waterfront on Cortes Island, the Discovery island at the entrance to Desolation Sound. Located on Manson’s Lagoon, this exceptional home and property is a private oasis with stunning ocean and mountain views.
Enjoy 800’ of useful waterfront. A true swimmer’s paradise where you can launch your kayak at your doorstep, float the Lagoon on the incoming tides or collect oysters and clams from your own beach. The parklike property offers many mature douglas fir trees, arbutus trees and natural pathways where you can explore the rocky outcroppings along your own shoreline. Overlooking Manson’s Landing marine park you can observe the abundant variety of waterfowl at high tide, explore the tide pools at low tide.
Nestled amongst the trees on the 3.5 acre property is a custom built 1448 sq. ft home loaded with creative craftsman detail and West coast charm.
