Property Description

Seclusion and convenience entwine here amidst the rugged beauty of British Columbia's Gulf Islands. Located only ten-minutes by boat from Vancouver Island's Canoe Cove Marina, this 6.2 acre paradise maintains all of the solitude of a private island without the isolation and lack of services.

Over 2,700 feet of ocean frontage provides residents with spectacular views of the surrounding islands, Mount Baker and the Olympic Mountain range, while the mild climate ensures year round comfort and enjoyment. Furthermore, the 62-foot dock and deep-water moorage allow residents and visitors to come and go as they please.

Built in 1980, the palatial main house is luxuriously finished with an abundance of natural materials including cedar roofing and framing, oak and marble flooring, fireplaces of stone, wood and inlaid marble, as well as elegant etched glass windows throughout. Grandly appointed, this four-bed, four-bath retreat also features his and hers master bedrooms with study and ensuites, a massive indoor pool house with hot tub, formal and informal dining rooms, vaulted-ceiling great room with wet bar, library, glass ceiling atrium, chef’s kitchen, outdoor patio with wood fired oven, games room, self-contained guest/caretaker/nanny suite, as well as a classical top floor widows walk; offering up the island’s most elevated view of the surrounding seas.

Enveloping the centrally placed main residence, the manicured grounds showcase tranquil meadows among stands of Garry oak, Fir, Cedar, and Arbutus, while west coast style paths (wide enough for golf carts and gators), lit by charming classical lampposts wind their way around and between the fully-lit outdoor tennis court, and the additional five individual cottages. Perfect for guests and extended family these, cozy cottages each feature one or two bedrooms, a kitchen and living room, satellite dish and internet connection, as well as patios and balconies overlooking either the sea, or the centrally located Pym pond.

Boasting full electrical connection to BC Hydro grid and backup water connection to Vancouver Island, a backup diesel generator, two massive freshwater holding tanks, island-wide fire suppression stations, and several outbuildings for tools, vehicles, and firewood, the island leaves little to chance.

Best known for their Mediterranean climate and artisanal communities of farms, wineries, cideries, and fromageries, as well as their spectacular natural beauty, the Southern Gulf Islands are a haven for visitors seeking the best of British Columbia’s outdoor culture from power or self-propelled boating between the hundreds of islands and islets, to hiking and camping thereupon. Rich in ecological diversity, this National Park Reserve was established in 2003 to preserve the region’s unique ecosystem, home to all manner of animal, plant and sea life including bald eagles, kelp beds, reefs, and local orca pods.
