Hyas Lake Cabin
SOLD $95,000
Crown Lease
The cabin is log construction and is 27' x 17' with two bedrooms, loft, kitchen, shower, large sun deck and dock. Approx. 504 square feet in size and was built in 1967.
The shed is 8' x 10' split into a 8' x 4' shower and a 6' x 8' workshop.
These are improvements to the leasehold;
12' x 16' floating dock Water system Inc pump, holding tanks, RV pump with filters. 8' x 10' combination workshop and shower stall with sink.
Laminate plank flooring in the cabin. Resurfaced counters and paneled walls. Propane thermostat controlled furnace installed by licensed pipe fitter. Propane lighting system. Lights over the kitchen counter, sofa bed and chair. Metal roof on 1 x 4 over 2 x 4, 1.5" rigid insulation used over old roof between 2 x 4's
The cupboard holds 2 – 50lbs tanks. 1 tank is empty and the other is approx ½ full. They last approx. a week to 10 days using the fridge, stove, lights and sometimes the furnace. Seller has started to switch to 30lb tanks as they are lighter and can be carried in a car. There is now one at the cabin.
There is only one wood burning cook stove, plus the seller installed a 10,000 btu propane furnace to supplement the wood stove. Once the pilot light is lit, it is controlled by a thermostat.
For the watering system everything has to set up in the spring. There is a Honda pump at the cabin (staying). There is a 2” line out about 60 or 70 ft with a screen over the intake. It is connected to the pump. I have blue pump hoses and 1 forestry fire hose I use to pump the water to 2 blue plastic barrels above the height of the cabin and outhouse. They run together through a course filter under the tanks. From there, it goes to a 12 volt RV pump at the shed. The battery is in the shower stall to run the pump. This gives you adequate water pressure.
Housed beside the RV pump is a 10 micron filter to purify the water. The water runs through hoses, white for drinking at the cabin and garden hoses for the shower and wash basin. The shower is a single camping water heater and gives a warmish shower depending on your water flow. My intention was to purchase and install an “on demand” hot water tank for the cabin and shower. The RV pump had the proper pressure to do it.
Included are two boats one red, and one white.
The property is .80 acre in size with approx. 125' of lake frontage and is walk-in or boat access only. The west line is approx. 280' in length and the east line is approx. 260' in length.
