Architecturally custom-designed home on 2.5 acres with interior design by International Designer Jeffrey Peterson. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in abundant light along with panoramic ocean and mountain views from virtually every room.
INTERIOR MAIN FLOOR:
This executive home boasts a large open living space, with a custom kitchen, living and dining rooms. A generous speaker built-in into walls and ceiling. Smart Home wiring for lighting, data, and sound. Fir french doors lead to a tiled patio. An 'away room' can be used as part of the main living area or transformed into a guest room by closing the double pocket fir doors and pulling down the custom built-in queen murphy bed. Floor to ceiling custom fir windows frames the views to the north. Fir shaker doors and fir trim compliment the wood in the kitchen and living room cabinetry, creating a warm, inviting space. The separate foyer with a closet allows for a transition between public and private spaces. A walk-in pantry with a fir pocket door offers generous storage. Beside the Away Room is a 3 piece bathroom with a walk-in shower. A large tiled mudroom leads into the house from the back yard and garage and has an oversized shower for animals. Italian porcelain tiles with in-floor geothermal radiant heating on the garden and main levels keep the home warm and dry within the temperate and lush rainforest climate of BC's lower mainland.
INTERIOR GARDEN LEVEL FLOOR:
The private and spacious master suite with ocean and garden views connects to the backyard through a door leading onto a private stamped concrete patio surrounded by gardens. The self-contained master suite has a walk-in closet, an ensuite with double sinks, and a walk-in shower featuring a rain shower and handheld showerheads.
Two large bedrooms with built-in closets have lovely garden and ocean views through custom-designed windows allowing both secure openings and egress. The lower level features a full bathroom with double sinks and a tub/shower combo. The laundry room on the bedroom level has a front loading washer and dryer, a drying rack and sink, and a handy laundry chute from the kitchen. Below you will also find a linen closet, storage room, and mechanical room. Italian porcelain tiles with in-floor radiant heat throughout are throughout the home.
INTERIOR UPPER FLOOR:
The high ceilinged upper floor offers a 500 square foot area with two distinct office/den spaces. One office has a southern exposure with corner windows framing the rolling hills and the forests of the surrounding properties. The second office presents the soft light of the northern exposure featuring a panoramic view of Sechelt Inlet and the Coastal mountain ranges. These two offices share a sitting area in-between them with a large window facing mountain views to the East. Wool carpet throughout and beautiful custom built-in cabinetry are installed. A geothermal mini-split heats and cools the upper floor.
OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE:
Relaxing on the patio, breathing in the sea air and enjoying panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountain. The 600 sq ft of gracious outdoor living space on two levels lends itself to private enjoyment or outdoor entertaining. French doors lead from the living room to the upper tiles patio. A gas fireplace has built-in cedar seating for cozy talks on cooler days and nights on this upper deck. A hammock offers a breathtaking place to recline. Choose your favourite music to play through built-in speakers. Thoughtful and ample outdoor lighting surrounds the home with cozy warmth.
Mature gardens with easy-to-care-for plants offer a changing landscape of fragrance, colour, and texture, flanking a large, level grassy yard. Fruit trees bring forth apples, figs, and kiwis, while raised garden beds in a south-facing yard create an ideal home-growing paradise. Carefully placed copper beech, Japanese maple, and cedar trees provide interest and enhance the views. Irrigation systems on a timer (drip and in-ground sprinklers) allow for watering according to a schedule and make garden maintenance effortless.
A cedar structure with 9" of gravel beneath it is currently a play structure for children (with swings, hammock, monkey bars, and a zip line) and has been designed with versatility in mind to be easily altered to become a trellis or garden feature. Sail shades add interest over both the cedar structure and the east-facing upper patio.
An original custom cedar and steel fence encircles the property immediately surrounding the home, enclosing the yard while being permeable and fluid. Two cedar gates with architectural details add visual appeal. The acreage extending as a meadow to the West is fenced on all sides and has many opportunities for adding pleasure. A chicken coop with an outdoor run (all wired for ease of automation), with Hardiplank cladding to match the home, can be used as a shed or a coop.
The checkerboard driveway (brick and cement) is extra large to welcome many guests to park safely off the road.
The acreage upon which this executive home sits is visually divided into a manicured 1/3 of an acre around the home, with a further 2.5 acres of fallow land. The fenced acreage, dotted with tall cedars, rises gently as a meadow to the West. A local farmer currently grazes his horses and cattle in the field; however, it could be put to use in many ways - for a second home, growing crops, or creating a hobby farm. Eventually, the District of Sechelt has plans to see this oceanview slope developed into residential lots, so it is anticipated that a subdivision will be possible at that point. In the interim, grazing allows for farm status, which reduces the property tax.
