All this in addition to other Significant landscaping and tree maintenance improvements.
A very desirable property for its very private sea view location and enormous potential for expansion through creating an owners suite with unobstructed sea views on the third floor, which could be accessed by a staircase from the second floor, approximately opposite the current office. That would leave four en-suite (rentable?) bedrooms on the main and second floors, and bring total square footage in the main house up to almost 4500 sq ft.
A further attraction is the completely private and furnished one-bedroom cottage, with large decks, its own garden, and a sea view. It has been rented for $1200 per month, and we had over 30 rental requests for this beautiful cottage in the first week of the rental listing.. This would be sold furnished and included in the purchase price of the property. We are also willing to negotiate including other furniture in the main house for interested buyers.
Exceptional and natural acreage, with the allure of living in your own private park.
Easy access to tidal oceanfront in serene Southey Bay (potential to keep your boat on a mooring buoy here), with warm ocean swimming.
A gracious meandering drive leads you to the custom designed and built main home, and to the separately sited guest cottage.
Easy care landscaping frames the home and cottage and retains the natural beauty of this 3+ acre parcel of forested land.
Dramatic living room with feature fireplace and window treatments, amazing cook’s dream kitchen, open plan family dining (great entertainment space, here), plus master sitting/ensuite completes the level entry main level…window choices, flooring decisions, vaulted ceiling in the living area, counter-top and cabinetry options, pantry…the spa style bathrooms…structural care and design thought have created a unique and irreplaceable seaside home for your pleasure. The upper level bedrooms/bath, open “family room” concept, all lead one to further peaceful enjoyment of this space. Beautiful….
The plus? A most inviting guest cottage, positioned for maximum privacy from the main home, and currently offering a very alluring seasonal rental for the owners. Continue this interesting use or retain as an expanded family get-away. The choice is yours!
This is truly an excellent opportunity to be a part of Salt Spring’s engaging lifestyle…whether as a recreational gem for now or as your special retirement choice. Call me…let’s view your next adventure!
Here is something completely different and offering privacy, calm, beauty, and low bank accessible oceanfront…6+ acres of forested beauty leads to the beachside enjoyment.
The owners have loved and nurtured their home and land for almost 20 years. Their B&B useage has been retained…often with repeat visitors. This is the authentic vacation home experience, with treasured areas creating seaside themes…collectibles have added to this charm.
The home would immediately appeal to an expanded family or the entire property could be a gem of a corporate retreat…a separate guest cottage, with expansive oceanview, is a part of this offering. Workshop/studio space, too.
A panoramic oceanview is enjoyed over Trincomali Channel, towards Wallace Island (a marine park) & Galiano Island…great kayaking waters! The tide goes out here, so it’s super beachcombing, too…walk for “miles” at low tide. Lovely swimming, and dramatic sunsets in the summer.
So many pleasing attributes to this loved family retreat property. If you’ve been seeking the very special, then here it is.
The Perfect Beach
Well, it’s Chesterman’s Beach, on the spectacular west coast of Vancouver Island…of course!
This baby point of land, at mid-point along this amazing beach, has been enjoyed by the same family since the 1970s…yes, there is a hand-hewn summer/weekender retreat home on the property, which has mainly been a rental option in past years, but the value is in the location, the sun exposure, the privacy, the topography, the natural scape, as this land has not been “developed” with someone else’s ideas…this beauty awaits your pleasure!
A property to savour…a vista to inspire…a beach to both energize & to soothe the soul.
Arrive by private jet, or regular flight (airport near Tofino). Come in by floatplane, into Tofino’s Harbour. A drive through Vancouver Island’s unspoiled “middle” delivers you to this majestic west coast lifestyle…a two hour drive through this scenic wonderland connects Vancouver Island’s east & west coasts.
Don’t delay…when this is gone, there isn’t another one like it…totally unique & very alluring.
Family retreat, corporate get-away, private enclave just for you? You decide!
A WOW, waiting for your discovery….
