Lantzville Beachfront ... perhaps some of the most desirable waterfront on Vancouver Island. "I'm not going to have my baby in a tent". So said Gladys Walls, daughter of Paul Bennett who originally owned all the neighboring lands. So the little cottage was built and in 1927 Gordon Bennett Walls was born and this sweet little cottage has remained in the family ever since. The living room was added a few years later along with a bathroom but the cottage remains largely in a close to original state. Bennett & Walls (along with Dunsmore) are two of the namesakes that make up "Benwaldun" the adjacent street. It doesn't take much to picture yourself back in the 1920's as you enter the property. On approx 1/4 acre with a circular driveway & situated amongst numerous magnificent tall Fir, Cedar and Maple trees on a beautiful section of sandy beach just South of the entrance to Nanoose Bay & looking straight out to the Winchelsea Islands ... complete with a remaining section of the original "promenade" along the beach out front. French doors from the living room lead to an enclosed screen porch or off the kitchen to a sundeck that is arguably one of the best spots to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon Gin & Tonic. On Lantzville water plus well & septic (check with the district for plans for coming sewer system). This is indeed a rare offering & for many it is what dreams are made of. Early on Lantzville was known only as part of Nanoose. When coal was originally found here, Lantzville was known as Grant's Mine. In 1920, an American company purchased the mine and property from Mr. Grant. Mr. Lantz was one of the directors of the American company and the area then become known as Lantzville. As the coal seams ran low, Lantzville entered another era whereby its life became one of a limited economy with a number of local residents but also served as a summer cottage area... and this is one of those cottages.
