Architecturally designed to capitalize on breath-taking south-westerly ocean views, this exceptional home celebrates the ultimate oceanfront lifestyle.
Unrivalled Sunsets, all day sun & effortless ocean access make this 1/4 acre low-bank oceanfront property a unique offering in coveted Oak Bay. One of the few properties in this popular neighbourhood with south-westerly views providing all-day sunshine and spectacular sunsets from every angle of the home and property.
Nestled on the quiet and private side of Gonzales Bay, the property boasts its own private sand cove, perfect for swimming, launching boats, boards and kayaks into the ocean. A rare shoreline boathouse with boat-winch provides convenient storage for small boats and equipment. Everything you need to enjoy a coastal lifestyle right at your backdoor. The property shoreline has a unique combination of terrain, interest and opportunity. The private sand cove offers effortless access into the ocean regardless of tides. Natural Westcoast wonder is embodied in the rugged rocky point that jets into the ocean beyond the cove. Rock formations with tidal pools waiting to be explored at low tide frame the backyard. A perfect setting to watch unlimited wildlife such as eagles, seals, otters and pods of orca whales. In addition to the inspiring shoreline, a long and level backyard spans from the house to the ocean, where a gas fire-pit will beg you to linger and take in the spectacular sunset, mountain and bay views. The lawn, currently surrounded by lush perennials and ornamental grasses, is certain to inspire your own backyard lifestyles ideas.
Arguably, one of the most sought after locations in popular Oak Bay. The home is nestled on a quiet no-through street, in a tranquil seaside enclave that benefits from the privacy afforded by being set back from the traffic of busier streets, also removed from public beach accesses.
Designed by architect Ben Levinson, the home gives a nod to legacy, quality engineering and design elements. Three expansive ocean view levels make a dramatic statement with the waterfront. Generously proportioned and flexible open living areas are bright and airy as a result of repeating large scale windows. Beautiful pegged oak floors unify the large open main floor living areas. The kitchen was designed for the entertainer, with function and practicality top of mind, and fantastic flow into the living areas. A hardworking kitchen that is efficient, bright and airy, of course rewarding the cooks with ocean views.
The primary bedroom with vaulted ceilings is centred around the commanding views with an entire wall of large scale windows, oceanfront deck, a sitting area with built-in daybed to watch the ocean and a gas fireplace for cosy winter nights.
An expansive lower level with walk-out access to stone terrace and waterfront, and additional separate entrance on the other side of the home, provides a very flexible living space that could be designed to suit different lifestyle needs or additional accommodation.
There is a bounty of outdoor living areas, with over 1,700 square feet of ocean view decks & patios, a protected patio garden with herbs and lush perennials can be enjoyed outside or inside from a sitting area surrounded by large scale windows, your very own “Potager” garden with easy access to the kitchen.
The home also includes a heated double garage with abundant natural light, additional storage and an e-car charging station.
