DESCRIPTION
A charming and fully-furnished Cabin overlooking the shores of Horne Lake boasting almost 100 ft of south-facing waterfront and easy off-the-grid living with numerous state- of-the-art systems in place for power, internet, water, gas and heating!

Just a short drive from the Village of Qualicum Beach you’ll find a scenic gravel road that winds down into a picturesque valley embraced by 3200 acres of rugged pristine forestland, where a quiet family-friendly community has grown along the shoreline of Horne Lake.

A lockable gated driveway welcomes you to a spectacular south-facing .55 acre waterfront lot with a bright and inviting 2 Bed/1 Bath Cabin that offers 1140 sqft of indoor/outdoor living space, commanding views of the crystal waters of the lake from all main living areas, your own private dock, and pre-approved development permits (along with strata pre- approval) have already been issued for a potential 470 sqft addition to the cabin.

This amazing package includes all furnishings, decor, beds, tables, chairs at the water’s edge, and a fully-stocked Kitchen with dinnerware and cookware...virtually everything you need for turn-key living is already here!

An entry foyer opens to a bright open plan Kitchen/Living/Dining Room with maple wood flooring and a generous use of glass perfectly positioned to maximize the stunning lake views. The Living Room offers a flat screen TV and an inviting woodstove that’s ready to provide warmth and ambience throughout the room on those cooler evenings, while the functional single-wall Kitchen boasts a generous amount of countertop space and cupboards with undermount lighting, a modern tiled backsplash, a hot water on-demand system, a 4-burner propane stove, and a full-size “GE” propane/electric fridge.

The Dining Room with its contemporary light fixture has a sliding glass door that opens to a sizable 534 sqft glass-railed deck that wraps around both sides of the home. The large covered area with inset lighting is perfect for dining and entertaining, and you’ll never tire of the magnificent treed views overlooking the shimmering lake, the rich aroma of the evergreens and red cedars, and the soul- rejuvenating peace and quiet only occasionally broken by the distant cry of waterfowl or a passing boater!

The deck is also accessible by a sliding glass door from the Master Bedroom with windows on three walls for brightness, while the opposite end of the home hosts a bright Second Bedroom (also with views) and a 3 pc Bath with a glass shower.

Under the deck is a covered storage area with access to the crawl space, and off the deck is a 69 sqft Pump House that hosts the power and water systems with a plug-in for a generator and a covered wood storage area in back. There’s a leased propane tank nearby, and everything can be easily accessed from the entry drive for quick loading and unloading of supplies.

A lighted staircase winds down to a large clearing overlooking the lake called the “Rail Bed” - the original site for the track of old steam trains and now a nice flat area for games, gardening and social activities. Electricity and water lines run down to the area and it may be possible to add a 150 sqft Shed with approval.

From here, steps lead down to the beach and 98 ft of south-facing waterfront boasting a fabulous panorama of world-class views that reach across the lake to Turtle Rock, and span from a Regional Park and Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park on the right to Rocky Point and Fletcher’s Island on the left with the snow- capped peak of Mount Welsey towering in distance! The private dock is the perfect starting point for an afternoon of cruising the lake or fishing for cutthroat and rainbow trout...drop your day’s catch on the dock and you’re ready to treat your family and friends to an authentic Island Barbecue!

Although you’re living off-the-grid, you’ll want for nothing thanks to the amazing high-end power and water systems (installed in 2018). Electricity is supplied by newer 1000W solar panels with an underground feed to the Pump House, where a solar charge controller regulates the power that reaches a bank of batteries. A 4000W inverter converts the battery voltage to 120V AC power for the house, and an automatic generator controller ensures a consistent supply of power.

The auto-fill water system pumps water from the lake up to a 600 gal tank at the top of the lot and provides gravity-fed water pressure to the house and rail bed area, while the sewage system has 75% and 90% full alarms. All the water, electric and gas utilities are located underground. Add a new satellite dish to access the internet, and order service from either Xplornet or Starlink...they will come out and install the systems.

You'll enjoy year-round adventures here...the summer offers caving at Horne Lake Caves, rock climbing on nearby limestone cliffs, hiking or exploring the forested trail system on ATVs, while the winter offers snowshoeing, ice fishing, cross-country skiing as well as downhill skiing at Mount Washington only an hours drive away.

Horne Lake offers a beautiful scenic location with a remote “unplugged” feel, yet you're just 20 minutes from Qualicum Beach and within 45 minutes of both Parksville and Nanaimo! Those coming from farther away can fly into the airports at Comox or Nanaimo, or take the Departure Bay Ferry, and within 90 minutes you'll be relaxing on the shores of your own magical piece of paradise!

Lake life is the good life, and the good life begins here! Don’t miss this amazing opportunity!
