Scott Island, British Columbia
Just three miles across the Stuart Channel from the Vancouver Island town of Chemainus, Scott Island is a tree-covered, 5.26-acre gem, easily accessible by boat, floatplane, or helicopter. A regular ferry service from Chemainus links to nearby Thetis Island, from where a quick boat trip then gets you to Scott. Amenity-wise, anything not readily available at Chemainus can be found in the larger city of Nanaimo, population 70,000, about 20 miles to the north.
Scott Island’s main residence is a modern, 4,541-square foot, bi-level home with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, an octagonal great room/entertainment area, an open and airy kitchen/dining/family room, and a separate living room with a brick fireplace. Attached is a 1,644-square foot, self-contained caretaker’s wing with two bedrooms and two bathrooms of its own. Both the main residence and caretaker’s section have large wrap-around decks and all upstairs bedrooms have balconies. Best of all, most rooms have southwest views for taking in the awesome sunsets over Vancouver Island and the Pacific beyond.
Arbutus, maple, fir, oak, pine, and juniper blanket the island’s rocky outcrops. Scott Island is brimming with outdoor activity options from playing the full-size tennis court, hiking and bird watching on land to kayaking, swimming, diving, fishing, and crabbing in the waters offshore. One of the island’s unique perks is its large and protected all-weather and all-tide harbor, rendering boating a breeze.
Offered, furnished, at CAD $4,900,000, Scott Island is a well-priced Northwest sanctuary, perfect for a second family home or company getaway in beautiful British Columbia.
