This unique island property offers tremendous value & many possibilities! With 1.88 acres, 248ft waterfront, a lodge house, a cabin, a second house & a shop foundation, this unfinished property has the hard work done for you! It’s the perfect property to build sweat equity or to share between friends; it could become your vacation haven, a lodge or a prepper’s paradise! Off-grid & no property tax. Located in a cove on the west side of Wadleigh Island off Prince of Wales Island, the property looks out over some of the most stunning open ocean views, studded with mountains and islands. The world’s best fishing & hunting is right on your doorstep as is all the peace and privacy in the world! This area is usually an idyllic summer vacation spot, but a few people do live scattered nearby year round. It is about 25 minutes via boat to either Craig or Klawock dock.nnOriginally planned to be a lodge, there is a great deal of value here and as the interior of each building was not finished, you can step in now and shape it to your needs. nnThere are 3 buildings. The newest, built in 2017 is the lodge house. The lodge house has a great room with high ceilings & a wide covered deck. It has 4 double bedrooms each with two queen size beds, a full bathroom & a large built-in closet. nnThe cabin is close next door, and was planned to be the cook’s residence. It has an enclosed outside area for cook ups & BBQs, a large kitchen with a classic cook woodstove & pantry, lots of storage and a loft. It was designed to be the kitchen for the lodge, but is a complete cabin on its own.nnThe third building (known here as the second house) was a two story float house, now on a foundation with concrete footings. This house has a bathroom on each level, 2 bedrooms downstairs, and one more upstairs. nnThis was all under construction so all the buildings need a good deal of interior finishing work. Due to its unfinished nature, the property is not bank financeable. However there is a ton of value here! There is roughly around 4000sf of interior space, each building is on concrete footings & a concrete perimeter foundation has been poured for a shop. There are 3x 3,000 gallon water tanks, a shared commercial leach field, an off-grid power system and two galvanized steel pilings in place for your future dock. Other extras include some furniture, tools & appliances.nnWith approximately 4000sf in 3 buildings you can buy this with family or friends. Get together for working vacations and use sweat equity to build your assets. This is a stunning location for summer vacations, watch the whales breech nearby (in fact two were just offshore while I took photos, surprising for winter) and there is amazing fishing, hunting, and kayaking! It really could be a dream vacation haven and everyone could have their own space! nnOr build up as a lodge and as a tax deduction, the location and set up is truly perfect! nnAnother option is as a prepper’s paradise. Worried about the way the world is going? West side Wadleigh Island is the perfect place to sit out the craziness. Remote enough to be well out of the way, if you do have to get to town, it is only approximately 25 minutes by boat. But this route is weather dependent and a good knowledge of those waters is necessary so unwanted guests are unlikely. And with that many buildings you can share with extended family, the sky is the limit! nnThere is a lot of finishing work and clean up to be done, but with the hardest parts done for you and so many great options, you can shape this unique property to become your new little piece of heaven. And heaven it is, spend one summer afternoon on that gorgeous beach and you won’t ever want to leave!
