Seeking an architect-designed and custom built authentic “west coast contemporary” home, on a sunny Southern Gulf Island? Here is a serene and beautiful H. Schubart designed home, on a private oceanfront property, located in prestigious Maracaibo…and it’s on special Salt Spring Island.
Maracaibo offers approximately 250 acres of forest preserve, with approximately 9 miles of hiking/walking trails. Ownership in Maracaibo offers all owners a share in this preserve, plus access to guest cottages, dock for the yacht, a separate dinghy dock, a saltwater swimming lagoon, seminar space…a lovely natural lifestyle experience is assured here.
The home is an exceptional rendition of H. Schubart’s design flair. Hank Schubart studied with Frank Lloyd Wright and moved to Salt Spring from San Francisco…lucky Salt Spring!
H. Schubart understood the importance of siting on a property, for maximum sun exposure and privacy…and the value of preserving natural land formations to create that alluring meshing of interior/exterior spaces.
The home offers a spacious living room, feature fireplace, entertainment dining off, and both ocean and garden views. A guest entry/foyer introduces this space to one’s arrival experience. A pocket door from dining introduces the kitchen and “great room” family-oriented area. A gentle winding path, through arbutus and natural foliage, delivers one at this more formal entrance.
One can also enter the home via a foyer off a courtyard, with entry from double garage/workshop with guest/studio (self-sufficient guest accommodation) attached.
This secondary entry, perhaps most often used by owners, arrives at a spacious family room with Woodstove, with a small library off, and a separate laundry off, plus a family dining connected to the kitchen. Easy access to a classic sunsplashed deck that runs the length of the home invites one to be a part of the ocean experience…with sunny s/SW/w exposures.
A bedroom wing, adjacent to the “great room” area, offers lovely master-sitting with large ensuite bathroom, plus spacious guest bedroom and guest bath. Again…ocean views and natural landscaping spaces to inspire these areas.
Forest, a meadow, ocean, decking, patio…privacy.
The home is one of Schubart’s most dynamic designs and has been lovingly restored/updated by current owners, while still retaining the architect’s ethic.
