The House... This beautiful house is 9,000 sq ft, (7000 sq. ft. recently updated ), plus extensive decks, currently divided into a 4 bedroom main living area for the owners, 2 separate suites and 2 B&B suites. The 3000 sq.ft. main living area is comprised of a spacious vaulted living room with adjoining open dining and family room areas, anchored with a gorgeous custom-built wood spiral staircase by craftsman Don Bowes. A wood burning fireplace provides ambiance and heat. There are expansive deck, forest and pasture views from every room. The large main kitchen with island opens onto a sunroom and large deck, perfect for indoor/outdoor meals and relaxation. There is a walk in pantry and sliding shelves in a bank of full height cabinets. The laundry room is immediately off the back entrance. A Master bedroom with huge 4-piece ensuite, 3 bedrooms and two more full bathrooms complete the main floor. Up the spiral staircase is a balcony library and an additional storage room. The partially finished basement contains a 2 bedroom suite as well as an approved commercial kitchen plus large framed storage rooms ready to be converted to a recreation room, a workshop and a classroom area if your dream is a teaching farm or a health centre. The Home has electric baseboard heat throughout, and an efficient wood-fueled furnace, capable of heating the entire living area.

The Suites… The current configuration has 4 separate suites. 1. A spacious 1480 sq ft upper floor self-contained 1 bedroom unit, with open kitchen and living/dining area, pellet stove and private second story deck. This suite enjoys a full bath with laundry and a private entrance with chair lift. 2. A 1150 sq ft basement walk-out 2-bedroom self-contained unit with its own laundry, spacious living/dining area, 3/4 bath, pellet stove, side entrance and covered parking. 3. 2 x 1-bedroom units each with their own bath, and shared kitchenette area, accessed via the main house. One B&B suite has a private deck. Note: this unit could also be rented as a 2-bedroom, 2 bath suite and separate entrance easily created. Potential rents are $1350.00, $1250, $550 and $500 for a total of $3,650 per month or $43,800 per year.

The Property… 3.43 acres of level land inside the ALR. There is a 25 ft deep spring fed well and a large ¾ acre developed organic vegetable garden area. The yard is mature with lawn, shrubs, ornamental trees, perennials and natural forest. There is private beach access via a trail from our property directly to the beach in 3-4 minutes and three other beaches within a five minute drive.

The Business Potential… Recently this property was home to Sunshine Coast Aquaponics, which raised and sold tilapia, sturgeon, lettuce and herbs to local restautaurants and stores and at the organic fruit and vegetable stand in front of the greenhouse. The property offers a unique opportunity! It is in in the Agricultural Land Reserve and the land and greenhouse space is in the approved ALR guidelines for legal cannabis growth. This farm was very favorably received by the local population and the huge tourist population in summer, who love organic, sustainable local food. Though the greenhouse is set up to grow aquaponically, both greenhouse and fish house could be used for conventional growing and aquaculture. Our aquaculture license presently includes tilapia, white sturgeon and rainbow trout. Aquaculture is a growing industry, much in demand! There is room for expansion on both the north and south sides. The greenhouse itself has 700 square feet of unused space for additional growing and materials are on site to build a processing room for fish and lettuce. The property qualifies for farm status. Expansion opportunities are many - biodigester for making fish fertilizer, enlargement of the aquaculture side, additional crops - can all be accomodated on this property. This area is a popular tourist route and destination. If a business opportunity is not what you are looking for, the business area could be leased out, allowing you to enjoy your large home near the sea, either renting out the 4 units or using the whole home for yourself, as the original builder intended to do.

Further Information... 6,500 sq ft greenhouse ; 700 sq ft fish house; 14,000 holes for greens and herbs in Deep Water Culture (13" x 4' x 100' beds with grow rafts floating on top) in greenhouse; 4- 1,000 gallon fish tanks and filter systems plus seed germination table in fish house; All heat provided by Biomass boiler operating on used vegetable oil. Insulated walk in cooler for storage of product,185 sq ft ; 650 sq ft covered shop space for equipment storage and workspace. Large diesel generator, tractor and additional farm equipment, consulting for the management of the Aquaponics operation all available at negotiable price.
