Madeira Park cottage description

Enjoy the ever changing beauty of the Malaspina Straight and nearby Texada Island from this recently built off-the-grid cottage. This cottage was carefully integrated into a 100 foot stretch of marine shoreline, maintaining shoreline vegetation and maximizing wildlife use. Bald eagles roost immediately above the cottage and fish in the bay below that hosts a myriad of seabirds as well as dolphins, otters and occasional orcas. Access is available to a rocky beach below, where you can swim in the pleasant bay waters. The 1800 square foot cottage on 3 acres offers two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, each of which has access to a deck overlooking the ocean. There is a California king sized bed in the master and queen size in the second bedroom - both bedrooms have their own bathrooms. The living area is open and well designed combining a large modern kitchen with the adjacent dining and living room space. The inland side of the house offers a large brick patio that is sunny and peaceful, and looks out at magnificent Doug firs and madrone trees. Hiking or mountain biking is available immediately up Middlepoint Road into Crown forest land, as well as numerous other hikes to the north and south in adjacent provincial parks such as picturesque Francis Point or the famous Skookumchuck rapids. A well stocked market, pharmacy, as well as restaurants and coffee houses are located just 3 km north of the cottage in Pender Harbor.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Originally from NSW, Australia, I have lived primarily along the West coast of the US. My wife and two boys moved to the Pacific Northwest over twenty years ago. As an aquatic biologist I have worked to protect and restore both freshwater and marine ecosystems, particularly in the Puget Sound area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Madeira Park:
                  This property was magical to us, since the marine and shoreline environment was so rich and visually stunning. We always found that we could relax here and feel truly re-invigorated when we left.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Extremely peaceful with essentially none of the urban noise that one takes for granted in our daily lives. The skies are incredibly clear at night and you can see the milky way which is not possible along most stretches of the west coast. Bird life is abundant and marine intertidal area is healthy. Outside of storm events, coastal waters are relatively calm with few waves, making it ideal for kayaking and swimming.
