Property Description

Cortes Island family home on 9.9 acres located near Whaletown! The main level of the home was originally built in 1939 and was moved on to the property in 2003. The lower floor was added on to the home at that time. Recent updates include all new vinyl windows throughout and a new wood furnace on the lower floor. The home boasts original oak flooring on the main floor & a large wrap around deck that overlooks the property. The kitchen has new vinyl plank floors & a sliding door that opens to a covered deck. There are 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom also on the main floor. The lower floor is partially finished with 2 bedrooms & 1 bathroom. The lower floor has been roughed-in for a suite and has its own private entry. The home is situated on a peaceful 9.9 acre property with a southern exposure and a large well established fenced garden. There is a secondary building site with its own driveway, hydro, and water services that would be suitable for construction of a shop or 645 sq ft cabin.
