About This Property

Simply Sensational: The Pacific West Coast meets innovative, cutting-edge design. Just 30 minutes from Victoria on a stunning 67-acre oceanfront parcel, this award-winning home is sited close to its 1,400 linear feet of shoreline. 10,700 sq. ft of extraordinary contemporary lines are accentuated by a Garry Oak grove, private beach and the dramatic Olympic Mountain backdrop.

On the edge of what is possible is this ultimate trophy with worldwide internet access to its mechanical and electrical controls. Designed by Marco Simcic, the home is cantilevered either side of an outdoor man-made "Canyon River" circulating seawater to produce geothermal radiant heating and cooling. Walls of white oak adorn the exterior while travertine walls dominate inside. Strategically located windows bring the outdoors in, including foot windows reflecting dappled moving light on the floor and walls from the ocean and river. In one 350’ span the guest accommodation is linked by a covered outdoor swimming pool. Also contained in the dwelling is a fully automated boat house with ramp launch. Included on the property is a caretakers cottage, garage with hydraulic lift and tennis court.

This iconic home has been the focal point of many news articles. In 2006 it received the Canadian National Architects Award and in 2008 the B.C. Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Architectural and Environmental Design. An exceptional masterpiece!

Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Strait of Georgia and the Inside Passage, Vancouver Island is known as “the Hawaii of the North”. With its vast wilderness, picturesque peaks, and temperate climate, this stunning locale is a paradise for those seeking serenity, natural beauty, and charming coastal communities. Unlike much of Canada, Vancouver Island's weather is mild year-round. Spring comes early, with cherry blossom blooms and sparkling ocean sunsets. Summer is close behind, with the first sightings of migrating whales and local fishermen. In fall, a plethora of farms, vineyards, and orchards take local culinary culture to world-class levels. Come winter, golfers teeing off and joggers taking to the trails remain common sights. Whatever the season, there’s plenty to enjoy on Vancouver Island.
