Pretty property and low price in Courtenay B.C.

  Posted by Picasa It occurred to me that While I am giving some casual help to a friend who is refurbishing a beautiful property in Courtenay here on Vancouver Island, to try and preserve the beautiful mature trees I should mention it in the hopes of saving the place and it*s beauty.

This location is only a block away from commercial zoned property where Dentist and Notary Public type offices are encouraged. I was hoping someone would buy it for residential use and thus save the beautiful park like setting.

This place is the prettiest of only three similar type lots along the whole length of Fitzgerald Avenue. A main cross town avenue with some traffic noise to be sure but the front trees on the large lot tend to reduce that noise.

The older house now being refurbished sits well back from the road and there is room for more building if the owner wishes.

This property is in the low 200k zone and seems like a great buy considering the near future. I would buy it if I could but have always been a renter and now retired, prefer renting.

Still, a friend lived there for years and it would be a shame if the beauty were cut down for a commercial venture.

The owner, Neil, said, *sure, mention the property on your website if you like*, TG

If you can afford it and really love it, then you should go for it. Ownership of your own home is so much more satisfying than renting. Having done both, I can assure you that even though if something goes wrong and you have to either do the repairs yourself or hire someone to do them, it's worth it!

Still and all, I do realize 200K is a lot of moolah!

I am too hopelessly unorthodox to invest and spend the time to care for a property.

If the urge strikes, I would build another unauthorized cabin in the Beaufort mountains out behind Cumberland / Courtenay.

There are so many places to choose from. The last cabin was enjoyed for six or seven years and then Hamilton Logging got the contract for logging the area. Now the cabin is a coffee shack for the crew.

Bothers me not at all. Incentive to pick a new spot with young trees so I don*t get discovered for at least ten years on the next one.

I can still use the *coffee shack* on weekends until they move on. Then it will be free 7 days a week. TG

Geez... the Jeep looks to be in mint condition. No evidence of rust. Quite different from my old Shadow, battered by Maritime winters since '92... and now retired to something called "Car Heaven", whatever that is, but it got me $1 grand for the trade-in, which is good, as it needed more than that amount in repairs for inspection passing!

Tony, how wonderful for you to be in the beautiful Comox Valley. I am envious. It is my home, I am a born and bred Comoxian, but alas, I am stuck far away, in the centre of the universe.

Enjoy, and hug a tree for me.

So good of you to verify what a great place on earth this is as one who has lived here.

All those in other places will learn for the first time of a paradise they had no idea of.

Surely though, you did mean to say ** on the outlying parts of the universe,** as the true center is the middle of Vancouver Island. Namely Comox / Courtenay. TG
