VINEYARD – HOME plus barn all on an acreage!
Here is a rare and unique opportunity to own and enjoy a professionally set up and functioning vineyard on beautiful Gabriola Island. This sunny and open 5 acre property, with stunning mountain views and spectacular sunsets is fully fenced and has 2 large catchment ponds that feed the irrigation system. Plenty of water year-round with rainwater collected from the 1600 square foot barn (built in 2015; electrical installed 2018; in floor heating installed and ready to be connected). The design of the light and open farmhouse with a recently added 400 square foot deck (2018) focuses on highlighting all the exceptional features this property has to offer. The vineyard backs on to the 707-acre community park for extra privacy. Because of the Farm Status Classification property taxes are lowered significantly. The home is very comfortable with 2 spacious bedrooms (one with own private entrance) and there is also a Bunkie (fully finished; heated; sleeps 2-4). The vineyard is truly a first class set up. The 3800 vines, when maximized, could generate up to $37,000 a year. There is also an excellent potential for a B&B and/or winery based on the current lay-out. Other recent upgrades include: Wett certified woodstove installed (2017), custom cedar gates and fencing (2017), all exterior (French)doors replaced/installed (2018), interior- and exterior paint (2018), 2nd catchment pond, landscaping and tree planting (2018). Sellers will paint the balance of the home to match when weather allows. All measurements are approximate.
