Looking for a private island, that offers many amenities (power connected from nearby Vancouver Island), just mere minutes from protected Canoe Cove (a private marina), and yet with all the allure and privacy of your own serene world? Here it is!
The very appealing country home, totally snug and ship/shape, enjoys the resonance of an English Country seaside retreat…custom cottage style windows, wood floors, stone feature fireplace in dramatic living, and stairs to the upper level master/sitting with fitted cupboards and ensuite…offering a “loft privacy” master “wing”, plus entrancing ocean, islands, mountain vistas (see the Olympics from this south exposure viewscape).
Large entry/foyer offers cosy seating and woodstove to enjoy on winter evenings.
Country kitchen with oceanview solarium off…perfect retreat for afternoon tea!
Spacious design studio, between kitchen and living room, would be a perfect formal dining room, if desired. Currently, dining is sited adjacent to French doors leading off expansive living room, onto generous Oceanside deck.
Main level also offers an office space, plus den/library, with wood stove and garden views, plus guest bedroom. Full bathroom on this level, too.
Upper level, reached by stairs from main entry/foyer, offers two further bedrooms, one at each end of this level, & linked by a library/gallery hall. Generous closet storage from this hall, too.
A very unique design…gentle TLC would allow for retention of all of the character and charm, while allowing a lift into 21st Century expectations….
The plus? Wonderful and easy-care “natural” landscaping…walk your own paths, through a forest/meadow mix. Coves, points of land, easy access to beaches…so beautiful. Ponds, stone walls, all day sun exposures (e/s/w), & a quick trip by private boat to the boat slip at Canoe Cove and the two parking spaces (these go with the property, of course!).
Amazing workshop/boatyard (would appeal to an artist as well as to a boat-builder), separately sited from home and sweetie guest studio. Decks and patios in exactly the right places….
170 +/- foot dock, helipad…arrive as you will!
Johnstone Island is a true treasure.
A special offering for the discerning island seeker!
