Goose Landing Lodge on Stuart Island is one of the most enviable island properties for sale in British Columbia. If you've never heard of it, it's probably because few people even know it exists! But given it's tucked away on a private island with no public ferry access, how would they? Here's a view of this private island paradise!
If you're looking to escape city life - or all populated areas - this could be the rare retreat for you! Yes, there are a few other residents of Stuart Island, but given it's size and the size of the property - 120 densely forested acres - you'd scarcely know it. In fact, as the listing brokerage proudly proclaims, "it's isolated, and completely self-sustaining due to its underground plumbing and wiring, a generator building, professional sized greenhouses, and raised garden beds for year round cultivation." Built in 2008, it houses three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and has several dedicated outbuildings. The property includes multiple boat slips, private docks, hiking trails, and even a boardwalk!
Off-grid and out of sight, this is the perfect island escape! How can you not feel perfectly at peace and one with nature, when surrounded by views like this!!
But just because this idyllic rural retreat is removed from all the hustle and bustle, doesn't mean the new owners will be 'roughing it'. While the structure is a satisfying semblance of the classic rustic lodge" - think A-frames, cedar timber beams, candle-lit chandeliers, and large stone fireplaces - it's not overly rustic. In fact, in addition to self-sustaining, it's also decked out with all the comforts you might expect, and more!
The expansive entertainment area is open and airy, featuring high ceilings, with access to west-facing terraces and panoramic views of the B.C. wilderness!
Here's the classic contemporary kitchen, boasting a whole lot of stainless steel, sexpansive stone countertops and pristine shaker cabinetry. Wel looooove the cherry wood and polished granite floor inlay!
How can you not wake up on the right side of the bed, when this view is the first thing you see when you open your eyes?!
Imagine sitting with a glass of wine on one of the many west-facing terraces to enjoy the sunset, the ocean sparkling, the sweet scent of pine on the breeze, and nothing to break the sweet silence except the sounds of the wildernes surrounding you! *Sigh*
Here's one of the outbuildings and the caretaker's cottage (if the owner isn't there year round), which has stunning views of its own!
Here's the Leblanc & Percy Group's impressive website for the property, complete with picture gallery, videos, maps, amenities, and explanations of all features and infrastructure! If you've got a cool $19.5M burning a hole in your pocket, we can't think of a better way to spend it!
Welcome to the the great outdoors, the wonders of our unique Canadian landscape, and your own personal paradise!
