The path into the land is by the real estate sign. You can safely park across the road from the sign….please park well to the side.

DESCRIPTION Prime waterfront acreage at “Codbox Point” boasts more than 400 feet of oceanfront consisting of high bluff, some rocky shoreline and a small pebble beach. The entire property is incredibly diverse with mossy bluffs, dry fir forest, alder bottom with mature maple, Douglas and grand fir. There are also some arbutus in the rocky areas. Several building sites throughout the property offer spectacular ocean and mountain views. In this spectacular setting you may be privileged to see a wide array sea life including orcas, grey whales, seals, sea lions, dolphins, porpoise, mink, river otters and many species of birds and animals. There is a huge, long term eagle’s nest in a 500 year old Douglas fir near one of the building sites and the nesting eagles can be seen and heard during the nesting season. Year round deep water moorage is possible in the sheltered waters of Gowlland Harbour, and there is currently an application for a foreshore lease in progress. This Southwest exposed lot is very sunny with good drainage in the waterfront area. The inland portion of the property has water and could be made into gardens, pasture for horses or fruit orchards. There is the potential to excavate a small lake in this area as well. Zoning permits 2 dwellings, so this would be a perfect property for a combined purchase with family or friends. The property is conveniently located on a paved road only 10 minutes to shopping, 12 minutes to Campbell River ferry, 14 minutes to Rebecca Spit Provincial Park and 25 minutes to Village Bay Lakes recreational area. "Codbox Point" is as little as 5 minutes from some renowned salmon fishing spots such as The Tyee Pool in Campbell River, Copper Cliffs, May Island and Race Point and less than an hour from some the hottest spots on the coast Such as Ripple Point (1 hour), Greensea Bay (45 minutes), Chatham Point (45 minutes), Denham Bay (1 hour), Deep Water Bay (25 minutes) and Cape Mudge (25 minutes).

AREA DATA QUADRA ISLAND: (pop. apprx 4,000) is the largest and most populated of the Discovery Islands, it is nestled between Vancouver Island and the mainland of B.C. at the northern limit of Georgia Strait. Its rainfall is similar to Vancouver’s and is considered to be within the south coast’s “good weather” range. Although there can be snow in winter, it seldom lasts. Periods of continuous below freezing temperatures are rare and seldom last more than a few days. When they do occur they are usually accompanied by clear skies, bright sun and dry conditions. Unlike many of the other Gulf and Discovery Islands, Quadra is blessed with ample water. There are many lakes, lots of ground water and aquifers to supply deep wells.

COMMUNITY Although many come to Quadra Island because of its beauty and mild climate, the friendly and welcoming community is what keeps them here.

Storey Creek and Sequoia Springs boast 18 holes carved out of dense, mixed growth forest. Storey creek has received a four-star award from Golf Digest’s “Places to Play”. Crown Isle is an award winning, platinum rate golf course. This 18-hole course offers a superb driving range with chipping greens, putting greens and practice bunkers. With 11 lakes and view of the Beaufort Mountain range, this course is a remarkable example of spectacular BC golf.

QUADRA ISLAND


HISTORY This property was part of a 100 acre parcel that was settled by the Foort family in 1935. At that time they cleared an area which later became a local landmark as the gardens and orchards were so beautiful. The owner’s sons fished, milled lumber, and tried to farm the land but eventually it became a hobby farm for Mrs. Foort. The 13 acre parcel was nicknamed the “Codbox” because they had kept their live bait there for fishing. That worked because that particular part of the waterfront is very calm even in strong winds. The current owners of the land are the grandson of Mrs. Foort and his wife. Their family are the 4th generation of Foorts to live on this land. By selling this piece they hope to be able to leave the remainder relatively undeveloped and to perhaps bring the old homestead back to its former glory. They are hoping to have neighbours who will love this place as much as they do! The vendors are willing to assist new owners in arranging excavations, trades, etc. until they learn the ropes. If necessary the vendors could build to suit.
