Modern west coast oceanfront majesty on Vancouver Island. This half-acre estate is perched on the shores of Privacy Bay just north of Wallis Point. Here, unobstructed panoramic views of the Strait of Georgia and the distant Fitzsimmons Range are punctuated by a host of nearby islets including Ruth and Southey Island, the Ada Islands, and the Winchelsea Islands.
In addition to unfettered access to the sea, the property is crowned by a sprawling 8,800 square foot west coast contemporary residence. A fir timber post-and-beam masterpiece, this four-bedroom, seven-bathroom getaway is replete with ultra-premium fit and finish including 14-foot cedar planked ceilings, massive Nanawall folding glass doors throughout, a glass-enclosed wine cellar with masonry feature wall, a double-sided sunken bar, a games room, a home library, a home office/art studio, as well as a lower level home gym area with steam room, massage/storage room, wet bar, and walkout to the spacious backyard featuring an oceanfront infinity-edge Jacuzzi and covered patio.
Ocean views from nearly every room and seven gas fireplaces, including a rooftop fire pit and luxurious master spa hearth, warm this residence from morning through the night, while access to all three levels of living is conveniently enhanced by the large wood and mirror-paneled south wing elevator.
Equipped to entertain, this residence boasts a chef’s kitchen complete with quartz counter tops, a hearty central island with breakfast bar, Wolf, Sub-Zero and Asko appliances including two cook tops (gas and electric), four dishwashers, four under-counter drawer fridges and freezers, two wall convection ovens (one steam), a pot filler, an urban cultivator, and a spacious prep/pantry room with upright fridge and drawer freezer.
Designed for maximum comfort and relaxation, the master bedroom enjoys two fireplaces, one a stone-hearth looming beside the massive south-side deck walkout, and the other inset in the wall above the sunken bathtub located in the expansive master ensuite. This lovely space features ocean views through its custom etched feature window, his and hers toilet rooms, dual vanities, a sit down makeup vanity, a walk-in shower, and an enormous walk-in closet complete with private laundry, central island, coffee bar, and a myriad of custom shelving.
For long-term guests or staff, the lower floor guest suite is fitted with its own kitchen, living room, ensuite bathroom, walk-in closet, office nook, and private entrance.
Tastefully manicured outdoor spaces are treed for privacy and feature extensive rock work including stone steps and curved retaining walls. Outdoor lounge areas are located on the ground level patio, building-length main floor deck, rooftop patio, front entry courtyard with gas fireplace, and ocean side lookout.
Abundant room for toys and vehicles is available through the mud room into the attached four-car garage which features over-height doors and ceilings with enough room for boats, recreational vehicles, or a car lift.
Optimized for connectivity, the home counts its own network room and a plethora of Wi-fi enabled smart home automation features throughout including full nine-camera security system, cutting-edge surround sound, automatic water leak detection system, backup generator, high tech appliance, LED wall panel lighting and temperature controls, outdoor watering system, secure front gate and garage doors.
A recreational paradise, the estate shares the neighbourhood with Fairwinds Golf Club, Brickyard and Schooner Ridge Community Parks, as well as Schooner Cove Marina and Yacht club to the north, and Ainsley Place public beach to the south. Access to the water for canoes and kayaks is available directly from the backyard, while a buoy for larger craft or float plane access floats just off the shore.
Located between Nanaimo and Parksville, the Nanoose Peninsula is a haven for water sport enthusiasts and all manner of coastal wildlife including whales, dolphins, salmon, eagles, heron, and an abundant stock of clams, oysters and prawns. A host of islands surround the semi-rural peninsula while the land itself is speckled with beaches, lakes, forested provincial park areas, and trails for hiking, biking, camping, and fishing.
