Property Description

Historical significance - site of the first agricultural show in Cowichan in 1869 (later and presently known as the Cowichan Exhibition Fair).

Further historical significance - the designer/builder in 1922 was Douglas James who practised architecture in the Duncan area from the early 1920's to 1943 and designed a number of similar homes in the valley as well as a number of downtown buildings, many of which still stand today. This home was one of several featured on a Heritage Home tour through the Cowichan Valley in 1997. See the "Stagstone History" photo for complete Ag Fair ownership over 19 years, and subsequent owners.

Environmentally protected in 2015 by covenant registered against the title, taking in approximately 13 acres of the total 15.5 acres. This is an agreement between the property owner (carries with the property), and two holders, being Cowichan Land Trust of Duncan, B.C. and Habitat Aquisition Trust of Victoria, B.C. A copy of the covenant is available.

The seller and his wife bought the property in 1962, raised 3 daughters here, maintained a small sheep herd, organic gardens, greenhouses, and an orchard of 7 apple trees, 3 hazelnut trees, and a large walnut tree. The original features of the house have been retained as heritage qualities. The property has always been kept comparatively free of 5 primary invasive plant species by efforts of family members and friends. The protection covenant holders assist with this endeavor. The property has some of the oldest examples of second-growth Douglas Fir in the area, as well as healthy Garry Oak stands in mixed forest. It is bordered on the north by North Cowichan municipal park land and on the east by another larger acreage. The long gravel driveway takes you to a peaceful setting away from road noise. The property is at the Maple Bay end of Herd Rd. and is just a 10 minute walk away from Maple Bay beach.

The cottage is one-bedroom, 720 square foot living area with additional deck and covered porch. It was originally built in 1927 and has been upgraded over the years. (See the history poster photo).
