444 Coho Drive, Mudge Island
In ancient times, it was said that when sailors were confronted with extremely rough weather, they would call upon a fabled bird, known as the Halcyon King Fisher, which had the power to calm the wind and the waves while it nested on the ocean.
You too will feel the calm come over you when you settle in to your new home on Mudge Island. The world slows down and time reverses to when life was less complicated.
This picturesque waterfront cottage snuggles against giant fir & cedar trees and the view from the large front deck looks over Percy Anchorage near the entrance to False Narrows. Marine life abounds at all times of the year. Otters, seals, sea lions, eagles, Killer & Grey whales, and sea birds of all types as well as resident Pileated Woodpeckers and Barred Owls ensure there is always something new to see.
You can spend hours watching the sunsets and the boats going by. A large level grassy area in front of the house is ideal for children to play. Vaulted ceiling in the Great room lit by clerestory windows and very large glassed in picture windows provide plenty of light. Gravel roads, ideal for walking or jogging extend from one end of Mudge Island to the other with lots to see along the way.
The 16 foot vaulted ceiling over the living/dining room is finished with tongue & groove pine. A built-in zero clearance wood fireplace and an Elmira Sweetheart wood cook stove make this retreat ideal at any time of the year.
Good well and septic system and a useable crawlspace add to the value of this property. Washer, dryer, fridge, stove, and freezer are included. Telephone, cable and internet are installed.
The value of this ½ acre waterfront property in the Gulf Islands will continue to improve in the future as the Government no longer allows property to be subdivided to this size and that makes this property stand out among others.
Overlooking Percy Anchorage between Gabriola and Mudge Islands, the 1225sq ft. waterfront cottage with 3 bedrooms and 1 ½ baths is snug and secure with a concrete foundation, 200 amp electrical service, propane cook stove/electric oven and heat pump.
Fully insulated, a metal roofing, thermal windows and sliding glass doors keep you warm and cozy when winter storms brew outside. The 6 foot crawlspace has lighting and provides an ideal location for water heater, a wine room, canning storage and a freezer.
The cottage comes with a recently installed 2500 gallon rainwater harvesting system which is designed for use as a reservoir for either firefighting or irrigation. The reservoir is connected to a pressurized pump system and 2 hose connections for irrigation through underground distribution system and the greenhouse wash-up sink.
An additional 1000 sq. ft. workshop with a full loft and a concrete foundation and separate electrical sub-feed is ready for the Man Cave or hobbyist and provides lots of dry storage.
A separate building beside the tree lined driveway provides accommodation for more dry storage, the pump house/well house, and greenhouse and tool storage.
