Lt 38 Ruxton Island Ruxton Island, British Columbia



This 2.15 acre lot is perched at the highest point of Ruxton Island facing south! There are no ocean views currently, so some clearing may be desired; however, even in its current state the lot is felt to be high above the rest, with ocean sounds and tons of light on three sides. Build a home that is level with the tree canopy and watch ospreys and eagles gobble their dinner right outside your window. The lot's topography includes a slope up from the wide road frontage (about 190') to the lofty top of the property with tons of flat ground for your homesite, then it falls to a wide shelf at the back of the property. The lot is just 375m up the road from the beautiful public access beach at the south end of the island on Whaleboat Passage, where there is lots of space for your mooring buoy! Ruxton Island is completely off grid and has no ferry service, and the bylaws forbid the building of new docks - most residents use water catchment systems, composting toilets and alternative energy sources - the result is a very quiet and rural atmosphere, even when compared with similar off grid islands like nearby Mudge Island. Come and build your dream cottage on the most serene Gulf Island, 5 km from the Cedar area of Nanaimo. Lot 38 is also for sale immediately to the south; the properties total 4.36 acres and would allow you to dominate this hilltop which is just north of the channel/beaches below. (id:33633)
