DeCourcy Island, British Columbia, Canada
Private and fertile off-grid acreage with s/w exposure suitable for a hobby farm
or homestead on DeCourcy Island
Life is Better Off-the-Grid!
A beautiful inside lot of 2.33 acres in a prime location across from the marina, next to the firehall and close to south beach. The marsh behind the acreage provides enjoyment for watching wildlife as well as lets in plenty of sun for the solar power and gardens. The land is very sheltered and protected, it's not visible from the road and is safe during big wind storms. The acreage features huge Douglas Fir trees and Arbutus growing amongst Salal and mossy covered sandstone knolls.
The newer top of the line off-grid systems provide ample electricity to meet all of your power needs. The well is technically a shared well with the neighbouring lot, but is currently only being used by this property. The pump house and the solar water pump system was installed by the owners and supplies a steady flow of 10gpm drinking water.
The cozy cabin is approx. 1200 sq. ft. and awaits your finishing touches. Open concept with tall ceilings gives a feeling of spaciousness and there’s plenty of windows to bring in natural light and beautiful views. It features 2 large connecting rooms, 1 separate room, a bathroom with shower, plus a 12x16 sleeping loft. The wood stove is the primary source of heat with an abundant supply of firewood enough for years to come! This would be a great opportunity to walk in and live in the cabin while finishing it to your liking as all the hard work has already been done.
Full Disclosure: no permits were obtained for the build nor any HPO is in place. It is sold AS IS so no home warranty is available.
The property boasts many garden beds plus a greenhouse with gardening supplies and fertile beds inside ready to be planted. There are also 2 shelter logic carports available for storage or a workshop.
The business, Pirates Cove Trading Company is also up for sale providing a source of income to the right buyer. And with all the firewood available, someone could provide themselves with a nice off-grid living in paradise. For more information about the business click here.
