Hidden from Land’s End Road by dense temperate forest, enjoy remarkable privacy and serenity at this 1.71-acre oceanfront estate comprised of two legal titles, three fully furnished homes, and a fully furnished suite including main residence, guesthouse, boathouse, carriage house and caretakers quarters overlooking a terraced yard stretching into the waters of the Satellite Channel, with Saltspring Island looming unobstructed directly behind.
Soak in peaceful views of over 230 feet (70m) of ocean frontage from within much of the main residence’s 4600 richly appointed square feet, its spacious walkout patio, or one of two second floor bedroom balconies. Floor to ceiling windows light the open-concept kitchen and 24-foot vaulted ceiling living room complete with second floor Juliet balcony. Dine and entertain in style with a walk-in pantry, service nook, and hexagonal dining room complete with wood burning fireplace and glass ceiling. Or, retire to one of three generously fitted bedrooms; two upper floor guests, each with five-piece ensuite, and main floor master featuring upholstered walls, two walk-in closets, his and hers quartz topped vanities, steam shower, tiled bath, and patio walkout. Elegance and function entwine here, with wide-plank hardwood flooring, cut-glass accents, and classical décor throughout the home’s living spaces, while a full motion/video/aqua-trip security systems, air conditioner, dual central vacuums, new hot water tank and boiler, IT/server room, reverse osmosis water treatment system, and additional storage space are located below ground.
Similarly blessed with views of the water, the cozy guesthouse provides ample room for additional guest accommodation, boasting an assortment of vintage décor, hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, kitchen with a rear deck walkout, laundry room, office with two built-in desks, two three-piece bathrooms, and two bedrooms; one with a walkout balcony.
Perched at the shoreline, the rustic, nautically themed one-bedroom boathouse enjoys two-piece ensuite and 3-piece bathrooms, hardwood floors, a full kitchen and a gorgeous wooden seaside deck.
The estate also features a gated, stone drive leading to a double attached garage with one-bedroom upper carriage house boasting a full kitchen, 3-piece bathroom, and lofted skylit ceilings, while the professionally landscaped grounds are flush with an impressive variety of flora, accompanied by a gardener/service house equipped with a full kitchen, bathroom, and small office. At the shoreline, a smokehouse with rooftop patio is the perfect place to enjoy the sunset at the water’s edge.
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.
Whatever the season, there’s plenty to enjoy on Vancouver Island.
