Family-owned for almost 60 years, this property borders the estuary of Veitch Creek at the head of Hutchinson Cove. You will not want to miss out on the rare opportunity to own this 7.50 Acre woodland property. Large Douglas fir, cedar, and Arbutus trees tower above the scenic shores of your private beach. The West Coast-designed cottage is facing due west and enjoys spectacular year-round sunsets. Views of East Sooke, Goodridge Islands, and across Billings Spit. House overlooks a south-west facing pebble beach, which is one of the best swimming beaches in Sooke Harbour, with extraordinary amounts of privacy and barefoot luxury with onshore winds, minimal current, and water warmed by the shallow depth of Hutchinson Cove, an excellent place for salmon BBQs on a summer day. Crab and shrimp can be caught in the Harbour, along with clams and oysters. Several pockets of beaches surround this highly desired 1200 ft low-bank shoreline. The confined waters of Sooke Basin provide a safe and beautiful environment for kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and a safe seasonal anchorage for larger boats. The forested property, with a rocky coastal bluff, offer scope for outdoor activities. A seasonal stream crosses the north end of the property, set within a steep treed dell, with a ground covering of sword ferns and moss. There is always something for the naturalist to delight in, as the property and Harbour are home to a range of native plants, animals, birds, and sea life. Private and secluded property, but easily accessible by car from Victoria, and a short drive to either Sooke or Langford for shopping. Stickleback West Coast Eatery and 17-Mile Pub are within walking distance. The adjacent Galloping Goose Trail provides easy walking and cycling to views around the Harbour, and to parks at Roche Cove and Matheson Lake. Short drive to regional parks, such as East Sooke Park, Sooke Potholes, Sooke Hills Wilderness Park, Sea to Sea Park; drive further to parks along the West Coast.
