    Description

    Location is key. Situated minutes from downtown Sechelt on Reeves Road just off Norwest Bay Road in West Sechelt. 17.89 forested acres with mature trees which are predominantly western red cedar. This mature forested acreage gives you complete privacy just on the outskirt of town, yet the golf course, marina, recreation complex and the commercial core of Sechelt are only minutes away.

    This sizable acreage, which is situated within the ALR, has a fantastic lay of the land. The land is fairly flat in most areas with some gentle slopes in others. There is really good utility to the land.

    Improved on the land is a comfortable, well constructed 1,800+ ft2 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a large, covered deck on the front and western side of the home. It has a really nice layout for both inside and outdoor entertainment.

    A fully equipped 600 ft2 1 bedroom cottage situated near the home is ideal for a vacation rental, long term rental, care taker or extended family.

    Properties within the ALR are permitted to have two dwellings. In time or if your needs are different, it would be easy to put the cottage to another use and build another new home to suit your needs.

    In addition to all of this, there is a massive 32 x 48 ft shop with a 14 ft high garage opening. There is enough space for the boat and RV and all your other toys or it can be a great space for a home based business.

    All the improvements, including inground services like septic, were constructed around the same time and everything was constructed to a quality standard and it is all well built with all the required permits and approvals.

    One new addition is a drilled well, which was recently installed by the owner. The current source has been a shallow dug well, which has been adequate but the owner wanted to improve this system and drilled the new well. Specifics are still coming in, but early reports are a drilled depth of approximately 500 ft with a flow rate of around 7 gallons a minute. These stats are yet to be verified.

    This package has a lot to offer, whether you're looking for a private in-town acreage or maybe to build a business that fits within the ALR designation. There is no doubt that this is a fantastic opportunity for the years to come.

    Area Data

    Sechelt Inlet is one of the principal inlets of the British Columbia Coast and the third of such inlets north from the 49th parallel, the first of which is Burrard Inlet, Vancouver's harbour. The inlet is significant in that it almost makes an island of what is instead the Sechelt Peninsula, whose isthmus is at the town of Sechelt at the head of the inlet. The isthmus is less than 1.2 km (0.75 mi) in distance.

    Another significant thing about Sechelt Inlet is the famous saltwater rapids (Sechelt Rapids) as it enters Skookumchuck Narrows, which rages with near waterfall-like fury during tide changes. Other fjords on the British Columbia Coast have similar rapids, also called skookumchucks (strong waters in the Chinook Jargon, the old coastal trade language), which like Sechelt Inlet are caused by the typical shallows near the mouth of a fjord as the volume of water inside the fjord's depths tries to pour out to, or in from, the more open waters beyond. In Sechelt Inlet's case, the Skookumchuck Narrows are exactly as its name describes—narrow—forcing the water to an even greater torrent than is typical elsewhere.

    Sechelt Inlet has two side-inlets, Salmon Inlet, which begins at a small power dam at the mouth of the Clowhom River and is about 23 km in length, and Narrows Inlet, which starts at the mouth of the Tzoonie River and includes the Tzoonie Narrows. The latter is about 15 km (9.3 mi) in length and emerges on the main inlet just inside the inner mouth of the Skookumchuck Narrows.

    In 2007 the inlet was a habitat for over 200 Pacific white-sided dolphin. They came in the first week of April and left the first week of September. They are amazing mammals that love to show people that they are very sociable creatures and many times will put on a show like Sea World in their natural environment.

    In April of 2010, we (Jason and Jamie) were on the water looking at properties in Jervis Inlet and we had the pleasure of seeing these dolphins close up. I can tell you that at the time, I figured there must have been a couple hundred of them and after conducting this research on the Sechelt Inlet, I am happy to report that the numbers in my opinion are still strong and growing. I also concur that they are very sociable animals.

    Recreation

    The area surrounding Sechelt Inlet is a Mecca for marine recreational activity. Boating, fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, site seeing, swimming in an area characterised as one of BC’s popular outdoor playgrounds. The property is centered between some of BC’s best boating territories, Jervis Inlet and Desolation Sound Marine Park. There are endless amounts of shoreline to explore, but one does not have to venture any further than your own dock to catch your daily limit in prawns, crabs, oysters and clams.
