Property Description:
Retreat Island is a 7 acre Island just of the west side of Galiano Island. Its native old growth forest has never been logged. Famed west coast architect Hank Shubart designed the main home, guest cottage and studio around the old growth fir trees. His design incorporated post and beam internal framing, large and extensive decks to create a feeling of living within the landscape. One half of the island was donated to the Galiano Conservancy Association which provides a crew to pull invasive broom on the island, protecting the natural wild flowers. the protected year round moorage includes a 40' dock,which can accommodate a boat up to about 50'. 200amp service, rainwater collection as well as an additional co-op water supply.
