This 42 acre property is located on Kaleva Road with over 800ft of southwest frontage and exposure, just across the street from the ocean and expansive stretch of round stone and pebble beach. The property is a 10 minute drive along the waterfront from the town centre in Sointula, and just before Maynelle Pt, along the southern shore of Malcolm Island. The lower southwest portion of the property is very pastoral, with expansive grassy areas and a manicured alder forest. A few hundred feet into the property there is a slight escarpment and the balance of the property is primarily level with a gentle grade. The upper bench is covered in a variety of vegetation with sections of more mature forested areas. The lay of the land makes the property very versatile and user-friendly. There is a road/driveway that has been constructed from the south east corner back to the north west corner of the property. A creek meanders through the property originating from the north east corner and exiting the property approximately 450ft before the south west corner facing the oceanfront. This property could be developed into something absolutely amazing for both personal use and a hobby farm or to take advantage of permitted uses under the current zoning. The rural commercial zoning provides for residential dwellings, as well as the opportunity for development of such things as lodges, campgrounds and cabins, home agriculture, cottage dwellings, bed and breakfast. Malcolm Island and the town of Sointula offer a picturesque west coast lifestyle. Sointula was originally founded by Finnish immigrants in the early 1900s looking for a better way of life, and that history is still reflected in the town. It has also been an active fishing centre in the region. The community of approx. 800 offers most basic services as well as shopping, restaurants and recreational opportunities.
