Back in May 2021 we reported on an island on the Sunny Coast selling for just under a million dollars. There is now an island for sale in northern BC for only $ 79,900.
While that may seem like a wild bargain, keep in mind that the nearly million-dollar island had a few things for it – structures and location. It wasn’t that far from Vancouver, and the previous owner built some decent housing on it. However, if you are looking to buy a recreational farm, this last island list could be your alley.
It is 8 acres in size, and is one of three that make up the chain of the U.S. Islands at Stuart Lake, 45 km from Fort St James, which is at the far eastern end of the lake.
Accessible by float plane or boat, the area in which it is located is a destination for lovers of outdoors and fishermen looking for trophy-sized catches.
The lake on which the island is located is home to rainbow trout, lake trout, lotus (essentially freshwater cod), cocaine, mountain whitefish, and sturgeon.
There is no zoning, so you could basically build whatever you like on it.
Oh, and the property taxes for 2021 were just $ 413.07.
