Vendor’s Comments:

871 Long Harbour Road, Salt Spring Island, B.C., called “Mystic Retreat”, consists of a parked out landscape with gentle rolling wave-like undulating contours. This is echoed throughout, starting with the curved “S” shaped driveway, winding through the meadow. Further reinforced through the curved pathways and many of the ornamental trees and shrubs (hazlenut trees and weeping birch). Several of the trees have been inspired by and trimmed in a Bonsai fashion over the years, looking quite unusual and unique.

Many large towering fir and cedar trees have been limbed to create a strong vertical, cathedral-like atmosphere and energy, lifting the eye off the ground, skyward. The combination of these elements synergize to create a peaceful, zen feeling.

This property also features large maple, cedar, fir, and palm trees, as well as several fruit trees.

The meadow boasts a fifty foot sacred Labyrinth, used for inner reflection and meditation.

A labour of love, crafted over more than thirty years, it has always been a very private, serene and tranquil home. With such a profound reverence for nature, this process of creating has kept me grounded, balanced, and “in the now”.

871 Long Harbour Road is a short walk away from the ocean, nature trails and the Long Harbour ferry terminal.
