This 79.56 acre property is un-serviced, zoned Forest Land Stewardship One (FLS-1), and accessible from Whaletown Road. The property was pledged to the Cortes Community Housing Society (CHS), so that it could help fund affordable housing on the island.

It is for sale by owner, asking price $960,000 as an ideal location for a small eco-community or a park within easy walking distance of Gorge Hall, Whaletown Post Office, Gorge Harbour Marina & General Store.

This is a very rare opportunity for the right buyer or partners to share. The new owners of this property would be stewards of a unique eco-property together with The Land Conservancy of BC (TLC) who hold covenants on the property to protect the forest, wetlands, habitat and wildlife.

The vision is that this property would become an old-growth forest with a MAXIMUM of 6 dwellings, each on a 3 acre lot, tucked in with a light footprint on the land.

This property is for sale by owner. All proceeds from the sale will go towards building affordable homes for Cortes Islanders on Rainbow Ridge in Mansons Landing.

For more information about the property or to make a proposal, please contact Sandra Wood, CHS Executive Director, via e-mail below or phone 250-935-6676.
