Premier Read Island Oceanfront Acreage in Burdwood Bay
An original homestead property on Read Island, this 39.74 acre, water access only, property is located in Burdwood Bay on the eastern shore of the island & offers eastern & SE exposure with magnificent views & approx. 1630ft of oceanfront. The land is fully forested with mature forest with the exception of a few small areas. There are old homestead remains that include an old orchard with a variety of fruit trees; a barn which likely dates 100+ years in age; remains of the old shipways for pulling boats out of the water; & 4 structures located close to the centre along the oceanfront. A creek meanders down through the centre of the property & the Read Island road bisects the property, separating approximately 10 acres of land on the high side of the road with the balance of the acreage along the oceanfront. Improvements consist of 4 residential cabin structures plus the barn/workshop. Two dwellings are habitable, modest structures, the smaller is a 1 room cabin in good repair with a new metal roof, cedar siding & some interior updates. This cabin is located at the head of the bay to the south. The 2nd cabin is charismatic & rustic, located slightly back & up from the ocean, overlooking the double bay. It consists of 1 large, open living space incorporating kitchen, dining & living areas, plus a fairly large loft. The acreage can be enjoyed as a rustic island retreat in its current state & would be a premier choice to construct a new dwelling. The current zoning provides lots of development potential. Domestic water historically has come from a dug, shallow well in addition to the seasonal creek. Read Island benefits from an internal road network which provides access throughout most of the island & to areas such as Surge Narrows & the Government Dock as well as the community hall & elementary school. A close community to Read Island is Quadra Island which is the largest & most populated of the Discovery Island gr
