    Description

    The property is located within the Old Point Farm Development, which consists of 268 acres of private land shared between 28 owners on similar sized plots. This leaves well over 200 acres of common property, which is left as natural green space, walking trails and private roadways. A key feature is the development's private community dock located in Boot Cove. Boot Cove is extremely protected and the moorage is ideal. In addition, the development is very private and secure.


    This property is high bank oceanfront and offers commanding views over Plumper Sound, the Pender Islands and Navy Channel. At the top of the bank, the land is relatively flat to gently sloping. There are three distinct plateaus with easy grades in between to construct your new dream home, with ample space to create beautiful gardens, landscaping and auxiliary structures.


    There is a small one-room structure on the property that would be ideal to use and enjoy until you build something more substantial. Afterwards, it would make an ideal studio, guest accommodation or workshop.


    Saturna has good ferry, water taxi and air service, plus a general store, pub, community centre and award-winning vineyard.


    This is a great opportunity to own oceanfront property within a well-established development. Private moorage is a significant bonus, which enables you to head out on the water to fish or cruise the southern gulf with ease and efficiency.

    History

    Saturna Island was first habited by indigenous people who called the island "Long Nose" due to its long north-eastern tapering shoreline that ends at East Point. The name Saturna comes from the Spanish naval schooner Santa Saturnina which explored the island's coast in 1791 and was captained by José María Narváez. The name was initially applied only to East Point and "Saturna" was later applied to the whole island by Dionisio Alcalá Galiano in 1792. The first European settlers came in the 1800s, but it was slower to develop than its neighbouring Southern Gulf Islands due to its relative isolation and mountainous topography.
