WATERFRONT ACREAGE.... 16 acres of walk-on waterfront property at the South end of Gabriola Island. This is a very unique offering in an area of quality executive homes. A waterfront property of this size rarely comes onto the market and this one is very special. The land climbs up slightly from Hyham Road and then slopes gently to the waterfront giving you numerous places to build your dream home. The waterfront is protected with a few small islands directly in front and has an easterly exposure. Silva Bay Marina is just around the corner to the North and Drumbeg Park is to the South. The property is forested with many old growth and 2nd growth trees (logged in the 1950's). No well or septic in place but with a property of this size, neither should be a concern. The zoning allows a home with a suite plus a secondary cottage. Access is off the end of Whalley and Hyham Road. The lot lines are a little hard to find, so call your Realtor or Martin Velsen to arrange a viewing of this property. 250-751-1223 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
