Property Description

An iconic canadian architectural monument perched upon a sprawling 67-acre oceanfront parcel at the southern end of Vancouver Island, minutes from British Columbia’s capital, Victoria. Punctuated by grand contemporary lines, the triumphant main residence is, according to it’s award-winning designer, Marko Simcic, “sustainably entwined” with its site in the heart of one of Canada’s most endangered natural ecosystems—the Garry Oak savannah.

Winner of the Canadian Architect Award in 2003 and a Lieutenant-Governor’s Award in 2008,
the 10,700 square foot main residence is cantilevered atop a concrete armature, rooting the structure clear of the critical tree root zones. With floors branching astride a canyon carrying spent hydro-thermal seawater framed by etched glass exterior walls, this innovative retreat blurs the boundaries of nature and shelter.

A sharp structural fold encloses an exterior pool and hot tub area which separates the social and private living spaces. Dynamically lit by strategically placed exterior and foot windows, reflections from the ocean and canyon river dance across hardwood floors and travertine walls. Panoramic views of 1,400 linear feet of shoreline and private beach are amplified by spectacular ocean views backed by the rugged Olympic Mountain range, while a fully automated boat launch and worldwide access to mechanical and electrical controls allow residents to remain connected while escaping to the sea with ease. Also Included on the gated property is a caretakers residence, garage with hydraulic lift, and tennis/basketball court.

Metchosin is a semi-rural community of rolling countryside laced with winding rural roads traversing cultivated acreages, rocky highlands, and forests along the shores of the Juan de Fuca Strait. This area is home to many migratory birds and teems with land and sea life. Nearby parks include Albert Head Lagoon, Witty’s Lagoon, Devonian Regional park, Matheson Lake Regional Park, Roche Cove Regional Park, and East Sooke Park. By imposing a minimum one and two acre lot size bylaw, urban style development has been limited by the local government in order to preserve the area’s pastoral character.

Nearby activities include golf at the Metchosin Golf Course, the Olympic View Golf Club, or one of 8 championship golf courses scattered about Victoria’s Capital Regional District, as well as equestrian facilities at one of a number of Metchosin clubs, or rides along the famous Galloping Goose Trail. This 100 kilometer multi-use trail links the Westshore communities of Sooke, Metchosin, Colwood, Langford, and View Royal to Victoria proper, offering cyclists, joggers, hikers, and riders a route through the the countryside to the city.

Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Strait of Georgia and the Inside Passage, Vancouver Island is one of Canada’s finest island getaways. With its vast wilderness, picturesque peaks, temperate climate and fertile soil, this stunning locale is a paradise for those seeking serenity, natural beauty, and enchanting coastal communities.

Unlike much of Canada, Vancouver Island's weather is mild year-round. Spring comes early, with cherry blossom, tulip, and daffodil blooms lit by sparkling ocean sunsets. Summer is close behind, with the first sightings of migrating whales and local fishermen. In fall, a plethora of farms, vineyards, orchards, cideries, and breweries take local culinary culture to world-class levels. Come winter, cars loaded with kayaks, surfboards, paddle boards, skis, and snowboards come out to play, while golfers teeing off, and joggers taking to the trails remain common sights.
