    Description

    Galena Shores

    A bare land strata development consisting of 62 mountain and lakeside lots. A common boat launch/facility is available for all owners with a washhouse with hot showers, picnic table and storage garage. The lots are all serviced with underground power, water, sewer, phone service and are accessible year-round on private roads. The vision for the community is for development that enhances the natural surroundings—lots of homes and cottages have been built. There is no timeline to start building and a well thought out building scheme has been put in place. Each lot can have a house, attached garage, detached garage/shop and one accessory building. RV use is only allowed in conjunction with residential use; this is not an RV park. Guest cottages are not allowed, but guest suites with separate entrances are allowed. Monthly strata fees are $865 paid annually and this includes road clearing, snow plowing, road and gate maintenance, landscaping gate area, common washhouse/boat launch facility maintenance, management, etc. All lots have underground services. Hook up fees apply. Contact the agent for full strata bylaws.

    Min house size: 1,250 ft2 with a 1,000 ft2 footprint. Note the zoning does not allow long-term RV use.

    Each lot has a pre-approved building envelope for house garages or any other secondary buildings.

    Suites are allowed.

    Lot 25 (0.72 of an acre)

    Lot 25 is a lakeshore lot with 82 feet of frontage on Galena Bay on Upper Arrow Lake. The land slopes gradually from the road down to the lake with mountain views in all directions. A driveway needs to be cut a short distance into the building area which has been cleared out and is ready to build on. Just below the building site is some common sewer infrastructure (potential for a gravity fed connection to the system). Services are all under ground and sit at the lot line along the road. The land also borders on a right of way to lake offering further privacy between residences on one side. The property has pockets of forest near the lake and road with the ability to open up views to lake. The foreshore in front of lot 25 is long and a mix of rock and pebble with sand underneath for part of the year and then narrows as water levels fluctuate. Many owners have created nice gazebo spaces and day use areas over-looking the lake and foreshore. One neighbors has built a cottage and the other is currently using via RV while they plan to build.

    Permanent RV use is not allowed unless it is in conjunction with a residential use. Some owners are using the land by RV while they plan and build. This is the ideal place for a recreational cottage or full-time residence.

    Refer to maps for lot shape and exact dimensions.

    Area Data

    Galena Shores is located in the Selkirk Mountains on the shores of beautiful Galena Bay on Upper Arrow Lake. The region is famous for high alpine peaks, amazingly hot and dry summers and lots of snow in winter. There are numerous natural attractions such as backcountry lakes, pristine creeks and rivers and hot springs—some as close as 15 minutes away. Everything from full-service resorts to more natural back country pools are accessible by a short hike. Galena Bay itself is a small community of mainly recreational dwellings with more and more full-time residents posting up. The nearby communities of Beaton (15 minutes) and Trout Lake (20 minutes) also have small populations of less than 50 year-round residents combined. This is an area to appreciate nature, wildlife and outdoor recreation. Revelstoke and Nakusp are the closest towns - Nakusp is 35 mins away, Revelstoke a little further.

    Nakusp

    Slightly more accessible than Revelstoke is the community of Nakusp, only 56 km away and not requiring a ferry for access. Nakusp has a population of 1,600 and offers all your basic amenities. The town has a 3,000 ft paved runway, great schools, quaint shops and services and a small but vibrant arts community. Nakusp also fronts on Upper Arrow Lake and has a great marina facility and attractive waterfront.

    Revelstoke

    Revelstoke is a real mountain town located 65 km north of Galena Bay and connected to the same water body as Galena Shores. Coming from Alberta one turns off the Trans-Canada Highway at Revelstoke and then drives south on Highway 23 to the ferry. Revelstoke’s economy is based around tourism, forestry and the rail. The largest growth sector of late is tourism as more and more visitors come for outdoor adventures year-round. Revelstoke Mountain resort has the highest vertical drop in North America and some of the deepest and most consistent snow conditions on earth. With a population of 8,000+ the town offers all the amenities one requires with two grocery stores, lots of shops, restaurants and cafes, all your professional services, spas, a great hospital with emergency service, two new schools and a picturesque and vibrant western style town core.

    Upper Arrow Lake

    Upper Arrow Lake is part of the Arrow Lakes which are essentially two widening’s of the Columbia River made larger by the creation of the BC Hydro Reservoir after the construction of the Keenleyside Dam. Upper Arrow Lake extends over 100 km from above Revelstoke southward past Nakusp to the narrows near Arrow Park—Galena Bay is close to half-way and located at the widest point of the Arrow Lakes. The water in Galena Bay is much calmer than the main lake. Lower Arrow Lake extends further south to the city of Castlegar.

    Recreation

    In summer the boating on Arrow Lake is fabulous, there are lots of interesting excursions—up the long and fjord like Beaton Arm which extends more than 12 km off the main lake body, kayak along the sandy shores of Galena Bay, visit historical sites such as the ghost town of Arrowhead, or just zip around the bay in a small aluminum boat, comb the shores for driftwood or just relax and enjoy the mountain views.

    Fishing is top notch on Arrow Lakes year-round, but best in the fall/winter months with large rainbows 9-15 lbs. a common catch, dollies and bull trout are also prevalent, while the smaller Kokanee salmon are good eating.

    Extending immediately out of the private roads of Galena Shores are great quading and dirt biking roads. For those who want to get into the back country even further there are FSR roads that take you up into secluded mountain valleys.

    Or for those who are looking for a scenic drive the drive south to Meadow Creek and Kaslo along Trout Lake and the Lardeau River is one of the best in BC. In late April/May the Gerhard rainbow are spawning at the end of Trout Lake (approx. 1 hour away) and these are the largest trout in the world—a must see! Other summer activities include wildlife watching, hiking, great mountain bike trails or just kick back and enjoy the stunning mountain and lake scenery.

    In winter you have some BC’s best snowmobiling nearby, world class heli-skiing and a few backcountry adventure lodges are present in the area. Revelstoke Mountain Resort is approx. 1 hour away and offers amazing powder riding. Some of the best fishing of the year is during the winter months as the lake remains open water year-round. And what better way to spend a snowy winter day than in a hot spring only minutes away.
