    Description

    Rare 2,400 square foot custom log home on 5.07 acres on the south end of Galiano. Quiet and rural but close to nearby beaches, parks, and south end amenities. Nicely landscaped with open meadows, a pond, pockets of mature timber, large maples, and some unique mature nursey stock. Located in a low-density rural neighborhood surrounded by acreages and hobby farms. Zoning allows for the construction of an additional guest cottage and outbuildings.

    The home features two downstairs bedrooms, one with en-suite and an upstairs master with en-suite and balcony. Large living room with vaulted tongue and groove ceilings, skylights, stained glass, French doors, and an impressive Tuliviki soap stone woodstove. Custom wood windows and doors throughout. Floors are hardwood and tile. A large wrap-around deck overlooks the gardens and gets good light through the day. Originally built as a bed and breakfast, the home has been well looked after by subsequent owners and recently ungraded including a kitchen renovation in 2018 and a new roof in 2014.

    Area Data

    Galiano Island

    (Pop. 1,258±)

    Galiano Island, is a beautiful wooded island with miles of beaches and hiking trails to explore. There are over 60 public beach accesses on the island. Located on the west side of the Strait of Georgia it is 27.5 km long, 6 km at its widest point and 1.6 km across at its narrowest point. It is separated from Salt Spring Island by Trincomali Channel.

    On the western side of the island there are a series of sandstone caves. The island is northwest of Mayne Island, northeast of Salt Spring Island and southeast of Valdes Island.

    Galiano has a unique fragile environment which is home to over 130 species of birds and many rare and protected plants. Despite being the first stop off the Tsawwassen ferry, Galiano retains an undeveloped, secluded character. The community and its supporters have purchased several areas as ecological reserves including Mt. Galiano and Bodega Ridge, whose rocky bluff is unique in Western Canada.These ecosensitive areas will be kept as forests in perpetuity by the Galiano community for the enjoyment of all. Kayak the surrounding waters, or discover wildlife sanctuaries and watch killer whales, seals and otters playing offshore.

    There are many amenities on Galiano including interesting craft galleries and craft shops, one gas station, grocery stores, a pub, a hardware store, restaurants and a few stores at the south end of the island near the ferry terminal at Sturdies Bay. In addition, there are artisans and little treasure spots dotted throughout the island.

    Vegetation

    Lawn, meadow, open forest.

    Recreation

    There’s literally something here for everyone, whether you’re beachcombing or bird watching, walking or hiking, mountain biking—it’s the perfect place to live or enjoy an adventure vacation. Climb Mount Galiano and see for miles and miles. Enjoy awe-inspiring views of the Coast Mountain Range, Vancouver Island, the Gulf and San Juan Islands, Mount Baker and the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.

    The day-use area of Montague Harbour Marine Park offers a wonderful sandy beach. Although not exactly warm, the shallow waters here are bearable for swimming. You can walk along the peninsula until you find another white shell beach of your own. Other swimming areas with beach access are at Georgeson Bay, Cain Bay and Retreat Cove. Active Pass and Porlier Pass offer excellent scuba diving, sports fishing, and kayaking. Kayaks, boats and mopeds are rented out of Montague Harbour Marina.

    Of all the southern islands the rugged and spiny Galiano Island has the most well-organized mountain biking trail system. Bluffs Park is the site of some spectacular views and the beginning of a network of trails and roads around Mount Galiano. From Sturdies Bay Road go south on Burrill to Bluff Road, then west from here to the park and beyond. Traveling between the Southern Gulf Islands and Northern Gulf Islands can be accomplished in small hops. Each of these islands is a world unto itself, each with its own history, culture and colourful characters—each island deserves at least a day or two for exploring.
