Lt 60 Busby Island Busby Island, British Columbia V0P 1W0

Waterfront On Ocean Acreage


Busby Island is located across from Quadra Island off the southwest tip of Sonora Island and is part of the popular Owen Bay area. The property is conveniently located within a reasonably short distance of some of the best fishing and areas to explore that this region has to offer. Owen Bay is a small coastal hamlet with a few full time residents as well as being a popular vacation area for people looking to relax and enjoy this Discovery Islands region. This 1.62 acre oceanfront property is situated on the protected eastern shore of Busby Island, directly across from Sonora Island. The property is accessed from the internal road on Busby Island. There is public beach front access in two places to this internal common road. The property is level at the internal road access, with easy access forest. It slopes up gradually to a forested bluff overlooking the oceanfront and the beautiful inside tidal waters of Busby. It then slopes moderately steep down to approx. 219ft of oceanfront, forested right to the ocean's edge. The waters on this side of the island can go almost dry at very low tides and it is possible to walk to and from the Owen Bay road on Sonora Island. A rough trail on the northern property boundary leads down to oceanfront. The protected waters there are good for swimming in the summer. Zoning permits the building of a primary residence as well as a secondary cabin (up to 80 square metres), providing lots of options for building and using this property. Campbell River is approximately 45 minutes away by boat and provides an excellent centre for supplies and services. During the summer months there is regularly scheduled water taxi service from Campbell River to Owen Bay and Busby Island. Other areas such as Browns Bay on Vancouver Island or Heriot Bay on Quadra Island provide even quicker access through primarily protected waters. (id:18813)
