Magical and Inspiring one of the last large parcels of land bordered on all sides by the Famous East Sooke Park. This paradise of 67.93 acres is currently zoned RR-3 this would allow for approximately 11, 2 ha or 2.5 acres lots with existing road access at the end of Copper Mine Road it is easily accessed. This property falls within the settlement area and re-zoning to RR-6A is support by the official community plan. This gives a subdivision a potential to have 1 ha lots and to have the ability to average the lot sizes from 1ha with no lot being created with a lot size smaller than 0.5ha. The possibilities are endless and the ability to create amazing homes is just waiting for you.

For more information, click the Brochure button below. Located close to the beach at 3944 Telegraph Bay Rd. and currently offered for sale is a proposed two lot subdivision. This could be a great developer, builder or family purchase opportunity. Each lot will be approximately 10,800 sq. ft. in area. All of the time consuming work has been completed. The conditional approval and demolition permit have been granted. Saanich services of water, storm, and sewer are installed. All engineering plans and tree protection plans have been approved. All fees and charges have been paid. Left for completion by new owners will be the demolition of the current home and the final subdivision plan. The 1/2 acre property is located in the beautiful seaside community of Cadboro Bay. Enjoy your daily walk along the beach to Gyro Park, and Cadboro Bay Village. Convenient to Frank Hobbs Elementary, Arbutus Middle School, Oak Bay Secondary or Mount Doug Secondary and UVic as well as the Victoria Yacht Club and Uplands Golf Course.

Let's do the math here so everyone keeps up.

 

10,800 sq. ft. x 2 = 21,600 sq ft. For the sake or argument let's call it 0.5 of an acre.

 

vs.

 

68-acres.

 

Cost per acre for the Cadboro Bay lots is $6 million.

 

Cost per acre for the East Sooke property is $37,000.

 

$6 million vs. $37,000.

 

I don't care how many roads you have to build or pipes you have to lay or septic systems you have to dig to service those 68-acres, it isn't going to come anywhere close to $6 million per acre, I can assure you of that.

 

This is the point I'm trying to get across. We have a land problem in the CRD. Affordability is its symptom.

'we've got a land problem....'

 

I think of it as:  we've got a people problem (well, the world has too, 8 billion and counting), and so long as our neck of the woods looks pretty darn good to all and sundry compared to elsewhere, we'll always have population pressure overflowing boundaries.

 

Easy solution:  well, if you're not going to fence the Island off from the World, offer less spiffy housing. 

 

Eg. Instead of 20-story 'highrises', build 20-story 'low rises' (entirely below ground, put golf courses on top, entrance via mini-subways).  Not enough light/scenery?  Come on!  With today's LED lighting and LED wall sized screens, you could be enjoying better lighting and better scenery than you would in most regular highrises (imo).  Might bypass a few zoning "height" and "density" restrictions, too.

 

And, the area it's built in, wouldn't be quite so critical.

It's clearly not a 3,000 square foot lot, as described.  Maybe the Realtor means it can support a 3,000 sq. ft. house?

Here is RS-12 regs Sparky:

it would seem you could build bigger than 3,000 sq. ft. based on that, but mature trees that cannot be removed maybe makes it smaller.

You can remove a tree that is within a building foot print. Here is the the clause in the Saanich tree bylaw.

h) Where the protected tree is growing within the building foot print and the removal of the tree is required to accommodate the construction of a building for which a building permit has been issued;

Well, the only way to find out the deal here is to drop the $1.4M and see what happens.

 

You want to get this one, I'll get the next?   :banana:

I have done too many of these already. I think I am past my prime.

 

The first lot that we subdivided as a panhandle off of a larger property was on Epsom Drive. It sold for a whopping $90,000

 

This million dollar plus crap for a bare lot is out of my league.
