The Grouse Nest at Atwater Landing Prime Oceanfront Developable Acreage


What would you do with the 33.8-hectare oceanfront property of your dreams?

Would you sub-divide the land into parcels? Would you develop your own idyllic community, building a variety of single- and multi-family homes with million-dollar views? Would you refurbish the existing 15,000 square foot lodge into your own luxury resort and invite guests to frolic in the surrounding Sooke Harbour?  

What if you could make your development dreams a reality?

 The Property

 The Grouse Nest at Atwater Landing is a spectacular oceanfront sub-dividable estate encompassing 33.8 hectares on the well-protected Sooke Harbour. 

With nearly a kilometre of shoreline offering easy access to the fertile fishing waters of the Pacific Ocean, this west-facing property is the epitome of a West Coast wonderland.  Old growth and Arbutus forest is dissected by a meandering creek; orcas, eagles and other spectacular wild life cohabitate nearby; the Galloping Goose Trail welcomes cyclists and hikers to traverse the property.

 Situated on a prime sunbathed peninsula with south, west and north exposure, the European-style lodge is a legendary property whose history dates back to the 1930s. With your vision plus expert renovation and interior redesign, the 15,000-square foot, 12-bedroom lodge could be transformed into a lavish single-family home, a luxurious resort for retreats or fishing expeditions, or perhaps serve as a community centre to a more extensive development.

 Grouse Nest is located in Sooke, a thriving bedroom community just 40km from downtown Victoria. The area is currently undergoing a boom of residential and commercial development. Sooke supports medium-density mixed-use development, offering many opportunities and possibilities for this property, including the addition of a marina.

The Area

The District of Sooke is the region’s southwestern gateway to Vancouver Island’s rugged West Coast. Hikers flock to the famed Juan de Fuca and West Coast Trails. Campers book years in advance for picture-perfect sites in the many provincial parks that dot the coastline as far west as Port Renfrew. Daytrippers explore East Sooke Park and Roche Cove Regional Park, while others cycle and trek the Galloping Goose. Swimmers relish the cool fresh waters of Sooke Potholes and Matheson Lake. Fishing enthusiasts drop crab traps and launch their vessels from the harbour, and whale-watching boats frequent the surrounding waters. Foodies and travel-trendsetters are lured to the region’s acclaimed restaurants and resorts. Sooke has developed a reputation as a prime destination for adventurers and eco-tourists seeking immersion in West Coast splendour.

The Potential

The area adjacent to this property has undergone extensive research as preparation for potential development including midden archaeological and environmental impact studies, servicing statistics, projected demographics, neighbourhood planning, marketing strategy, and much more. Topographical and other detailed information is available for your consideration.

Grouse Nest at Atwater Landing is offered at just 6.98 million Canadian, substantially below current market value for immediate sale. Development possibilities and subsequent profit potential are exponential for this one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a portion of authentic West Coast paradise. Start dreaming up your boundless vision and submit your offer by July 16th at 4 p.m.
