Vendor Comments:

Some of the investments, current owners have made in the property in recent years, totalling approximately $250,000, as follows:

Addition of entertainment room with state of the art video/sound system (replacing old garage) – 45,000

Addition of new 2 car garage, garden equipment storage shed – 50,000

Addition of complete main house new roof – 25,000

Addition of custom hand-quarried property entrance wall and remote controlled gates – 50,000

Addition of total property deer fencing – 10,000

Provision of broad sea view through clearance of one acre of neighbouring property trees – 35,000

Addition of three lawns, custom stone paved areas/patios, flowerbeds, automatic sprinkler system – 30,000

Addition of gravel driveway and fencing – 10,000

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.

Beachcombing Charmer

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.

Japanese Style Oceanfront

Here is a magical 7+ acres, dramatic oceanfront, with exquisite crafted and authentic Japanese designed home.

The spacious dwelling lends itself to a professional couple, working from home…it would also be a very pleasing family retreat, offering both privacy and proximity. A luxury eastern inspired country inn style B&B would also be graciously possible here. Many opportunities, and the buyer may suggest others.

The home is sited on a rock outcropping, beside a sweep of sandy cove, with panoramic ocean/islands/mountain vistas…views to inspire the soul. The fineness of design and construction, the simplicity of the landscaping…the allure is evident from the moment of arrival.

Lovely walking trails through stands of fir, cedar, hemlock, maple, alder, arbutus…a fern enclave that suggests an Emily Carr painting…a natural pond with gazebo to encourage tranquility…open meadows…this private property is wonderfully sited at Salt Spring’s peaceful “south end”, and enjoys a varied topography.

A true estate style oceanfront property holding, with a Zen/Scandanavian allure. Here is that sculptural spareness of true minimalism.

Totally unique. Totally beautiful.

Extraordinary Beachfront

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….

Custom designed and construction by one of Salt Spring’s premier builders, the attention to detail here, and the fineness of the finishes, are superlative.

Radiant infloor heating, cherry wood flooring, copper flooring, custom window treatments, dream kitchen with pantry/storage and mudroom entry off, dramatic dining with window wall that totally opens to the outdoor barbecue/decking, thus expanding summer living pleasures, plus expansive living with stone feature fireplace, handcrafted finishes, plus formal entry and guest powder room.
