just put on the market, my mother-in-law’s property on passage island. the property is west-facing and about 18,000 sq.ft. in size, with about 48′ of rocky outcropping waterfront.
check out the listing by susan johnston here, and below is a short description of the site:
a little chunk of heaven, this waterfront bare land property is approx 1/3 acre & beautifully situated mid-island on passage island. west-facing, gorgeous views of howe sound & bowen island, this mid-bank property is easily the best value lot on the island. Just 10 minutes from west vancouver thunderbird marina. desk-to-dock: passage island is less than 1 hr commute from downtown vancouver on most days. surrounded by a mature forest, stunning island & ocean views, build your dream cabin on this awesome piece of land. possibility of installing a dock/gangway for direct access. imagine sunset dinners on your patio, a 3 minute walk down the path to one of two island beaches, fishing/crabbing/prawning at your doorstep & an eco-friendly recreational lifestyle.
a local home designer, me!, who is familiar with the site is available to help guide the new owners through the building of a cottage on the land. since the lot is water access only, a dock would have to be built and septic filed installed. there is no electricity on the island which would deem the need for a generator or solar photovoltaic collectors. water collection would be designed into the house for daily usage as well.
its a wondefrul island and great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. it sure is sad to see it on the mls but feel free to spread the word to any friends, colleagues who may be interested.
