About This Property

There are still places of serenity and simplicity that resonate on a different plane. Even to laid back Salt Spring locals, there is a calming energy “up the Cranberry” that just feels different. Just feels right. Your cell won’t ring here. You may not think to check email for hours at a time. And that is the point. Only a few ever get the privilege to call Toynbee Road home - it is on the sunny side of the valley and decades can pass between opportunities to acquire ownership - so we are understandably honoured to represent this much loved five acre pocket in the valley. From humble beginnings, the home and grounds have grown to be so much more than simple shelter. Design-wise details and a professional gardener's hand tell a tale of shifting times and shifting needs. Wooded paths encourage commune with nature; a modern kitchen calls for greens from the garden; a hammock swings in summer breezes; a private pond and backyard firepit rekindle the immense pleasure of kicking back enjoying real facetime with family and friends.
