    Description

    This 149 acre timbered property on BC’s north coast near Prince Rupert has 2,700 ft of oceanfront with a pond and creek.

    Located south of Prince Rupert on the south side of the mouth of the Skeena River it is accessible only by water. There is a log cabin circa 1987 which we haven’t seen yet and the owner has not been back to for several years. The condition of the cabin is uncertain so it is being sold “as is where is” and no value has been placed on the cabin in determining the asking price.

    The property has not been logged at least since the current owner’s family purchased it in the early 1950s. Timber volume, species and quality must be determined by and to the satisfaction of the buyer.

    The northerly third (50 acres) of the property is quite flat and useable with the pond and creek flowing from it to the beach. The property slopes steeply upward from the pond and the majority of timber is on the slope and the bench on top of the property.

    The property is believed to be a former cannery site.
