The most unique and dramatic of the small Gulf Islands, Fane Island offers total privacy and spectacular views . Alone in your own inland-sea of Plumper Sound, you will see spectacular sunrises over snow-capped Mount Baker, long multi island views to Haro Strait to the south, blazing sunsets over Navy Channel, all just a two minute boat-ride from the romantic, historic port of Hope Bay with its public dock, tiny shops and a restaurant.
Over 1,000 feet long with a light-house on one tip, Fane Island has two breathtaking house-sites. One is its center on a 25’ foot outcropping with 360 degree views guarded by a 900 year old fir. The other overlooks the masterfully built, inimitable all-weather harbor surrounded by giant ancient firs, arbutus, and Gerry Oaks . With its massive rock bluffs, small meadows of wild flowers (the locals call it Flower Island) and two private beaches, it is a naturally landscaped paradise.
The small cabin with kitchen and sleeping loft is ideal while you build your dream house. The septic field is in, as is the concrete foundation for a boathouse with guest-house above. It is stone faced to blend in with the surroundings.
With its dramatic winter storms and long, balmy, calm summer evenings around a camp fire on the beach; with its playful baby seals, sea otters, mink and resident bald eagle, Fane Island has brought unforgettable memories to its owners—he a writer and she a painter— for well over a quarter century.
Why not make the next blazingly alive quarter century yours.
