|"Maracaibo Oceanfront Estate"||$3,988,000||Salt Spring Island||Oceanfront|
This private and sunny acreage enjoys a natural scape, with a mix of coastal forest and open meadow areas...with arbutus and garry oak groves. Unique and beautiful.
The property is located in the premier neighbourhood of Maracaibo. The entire Atholl Peninsula became the bare land strata known as Maracaibo in the 1960s. The concept was to preserve the untouched beauty of this almost 700 acres.
One owns one’s lot freehold and one also has a share in the 250 acres of common land. There are 9 miles of hiking/walking trails, 9 cottages for the use of owners, a salt water swimming lagoon, docks for your yachts, the Nose Point preserve, just for the owners...and so on. From Vancouver? Then imagine your own private “Stanley Park”...you get the idea. A wondrous acreage parcel to call home and plus, plus, plus! Call me for more details.
The exquisite home on this private oceanfront acreage was designed and executed by H. Schubart. Schubart studied with Frank Lloyd Wright, and left an architectural practice in San Francisco to move to Salt Spring. This is archetypal and authentic “West Coast Contemporary”.
Artfully rendered spaces that blur the line between inside/outside...two master bedrooms, two bath, in own private wing. A casual living/dining with kitchen off...and a library alcove. Guest powder room. Separate laundry. Dramatic living and dining, feature fireplace, vistas of sea and forest from all spaces.
A separate studio (guest beds/bath, with lovely office/library) is linked to main home by an artful garden atrium oasis. Spacious double garage adjacent, with room for that classic car.
Architectural flair with ease of living and a sweep of decking to expand summer living pleasures. Meander a path to the private Oceanside patio...enjoy the marine views out tranquil Long Harbour. This is a property of style and inspiration. Enjoy!
