A modern classic of lasting detail on five high bank oceanfront acres with dock. Inside, focus is on the exceptional views, and varying levels of sight lines are used to achieve a brilliant interaction with the landscape throughout 7669 square feet of exquisite living space. Careful attention has been paid to the whole and achieving such balance required much of the architect, designer and builder. Every detail has been meticulously crafted to ensure easy living for generations to come. Clearly one of Salt Spring’s most impressive oceanfront estates.
