What the owners have to say..."What makes Roberts Creek so special is the sense of community.
It's a place where kids go to school together, grow up together, and make those lifelong friendship bonds. It's a place where neighbours meet just down the road at the gumboot for coffee, or just up the hill to pick up their fresh produce and preserves at the hall market on Wednesdays. It's a place where people still stop and chat on the road as you take the dog for its walk. Summer months become very busy with tourists that flock to the Coast for some lazy days at the sandy Roberts Creek Beach, or a round of golf just up the road. Winter months, we see plenty of hikers, mountain bikers, and folks just trying to escape their hectic lives in the city.
This particular property has been transformed over the years, with family in mind. The main home has had a steel beam (earthquake-proof) addition added on for the garage area. This was constructed without centre support to enable a large travel trailer to be backed into place with ease. Above the garage, we added two large bedrooms for growing teens, a lovely deck off the front and another off the back of the home. There is a natural gas BBQ hookup on the back deck, and the addition was built and wired to enable the owner to make a separate suite with its own private access if they so chose to do so.
The two bathrooms upstairs were completely redesigned in 2018 by Spani construction, allowing for large glass walk-in showers in each, a jacuzzi soaker in the master and lovely heated floors. The Beachwood vinyl plank flooring throughout the main home is easy-care, and durable. The main home has three natural gas fireplaces, keeping heating costs in the winter at a minimum. All walls in the main home are 8" deep, allowing for a noise-free environment and great climate control. There is also forced air electric and baseboard heat if you chose to use it. The main home also has a natural gas BBQ on the large deck off of the kitchen, a natural gas double oven (2018) in the kitchen and natural gas hot water. There is also a hot water on-demand tank.
The separate cottage was built for the present owner's ageing mother to age in place. It now runs as a very successful b&b, bringing so many wonderful guests from around the world, but it could be a separate full-time rental if the new owner preferred. The cottage also has a natural gas fireplace as well as heated floors throughout and electric baseboard for heat. It is fully self-contained with a separate driveway, deck, BBQ area, gardens, and a lovely koi pond that both homes share.
The main home has ample parking for all your toys with a large concrete driveway and multiple parking areas, while the cottage can also accommodate two vehicles.
The entire property has been landscaped over the years. There are towering rhododendrons in the parklike area behind the main home, underplanted with various perennials that burst with colour in the Spring. Here you will also find a second pond and a park bench to sit and reflect on your day. There are beautiful Japanese maples, magnificent fir trees, towering tree lilies, apple, cherry, and pear trees, along with a designated vegetable garden area as well. The property is a haven for birds, butterflies and honey bees. A short walk down the road brings you to the ocean. Enjoy a summer evening swim as the water is warmed by the heat of the sun on the rocks during the day. Launch your canoe or kayak and go for a paddle. Get your bike and head for the trails up the road, take the dog for a long walk.
Make your own special memories. We have had so many happy years here, but now the kids are grown, and it's time for us to downsize and get on with our next great adventure. We hope that whomever buys this property has as many years of happiness that we have had here. It truly is a magical spot.
