Property Description

70 acres on the eastern shores of Gorge Harbour on Cortes Island: one of the most unique & diverse private properties on the island. Over 2000ft of protected oceanfront & over 1400ft of lakefront on Anvil Lake. Anvil Creek bisects the property & flows out into Gorge Harbour. The oceanfront features include a secluded bay, peninsula, rock outcrops & an islet. The topography of the upland is diverse, low bank oceanfront, mix of level areas along the ocean-side as well as along Anvil Creek & the wetlands to the west, rising gently through the property leading to approx 1470ft of shoreline on Anvil Lake. This is the only private property bordering Anvil Lake. The acreage is fully forested primarily with mature 2nd growth trees. A beautiful forest setting that includes dramatic slopes, moss covered rock bluffs, ferns & a diverse mix of indigenous vegetation typical for this region. The surrounding land is Crown Land. Abundant wildlife & ducks & other waterfowl, eagles, ravens, osprey, beavers complement the property. There is no road access or services to the property. Boat access & independent living 'off the grid' is what this property is all about. There is a dock to tie up to but no ramp. There are 3 structures on the land. The primary dwelling is a West Coast Contemporary style 2-level structure nestled into the forest & situated adjacent to a picturesque wetland area along side of Anvil Creek. A rustic structure & habitable. The 2nd dwelling is modest & situated closer to the ocean. The 3rd structure is a small 12x16 float cabin shell / sleeping room. Cortes Island is well known for its waterfalls, secret coves, rock cliffs & tranquil natural beauty with opportunities for wildlife viewing. For the outdoor enthusiast it is truly one of the best jumping off points for a variety of outdoor activities including fishing, prawning, kayaking & hiking. This area enjoys a nice temperate climate & the waters here are warmer than in most other areas on the coast.
