A REMOTE BUT ACCESSIBLE RECREATIONAL PROPERTY THAT WILL LAST FOR GENERATIONS
Salmon Beach has evolved into one of the most unique and prized recreational cottage communities on Vancouver Island. Zoning now allows for cottage construction up to 768 sq ft plus a loft of 384 sq ft (depending on lot size) and construction of a utility building, deck and outdoor living space.
With BC Hydro now available, onsite electricity means not only a richer experience when you’re here, but increased value to your property.
All properties are freehold (fee simple) – NOT strata or leased and are not implicated with any First Nations land treaties.
SECURE AND MAINTAINED YEAR-ROUND
Full time caretakers are on site to providing maintenance of amenities (boat ramp, playground, tennis courts etc.). There is an elected Salmon Beach Owner’s Association Executive Committee, which manages the annual budget allocated by the Regional District (levied as a parcel tax by BC Property Tax) to provide common services for owners – including road maintenance, garbage collection, water (testing and maintenance) and sewage disposal.
