"Sunny Pastoral 5+ Acres" $2,150,000 Salt Spring Island Residential
View Photos A | View Photos B

This exceptional property enjoys a farm ambiance on its private 5 plus acres. Pasture, pond, trail access to nearby Baker Road beach, and a window view onto Stuart Channel and Maple Mountain Park, are pleasing attributes. Sunny exposures (S/SW/W), and a quiet location are also important aspects.

The home's construction is premier (Huser construction), and their years as the main builders for famed architect H. Schubart brought many design features to the home...generous overhangs, custom windows that capture viewscapes, custom entrance door, an interesting Zen/Scandinavian ethic...generous room sizes and feature staircase. The home is immediately welcoming.

The main level is perfect for a couple, with master suite and private bath, adjacent office/guest room (en-suite), open-plan living/dining (feature fireplace), country kitchen, spacious laundry off. Oversize garage is reached via laundry/storage area.

Daylight lower level enjoys a living area (wood stove), and two generous bedrooms and large bathroom. Easy access to patio areas from both main and lower levels.

The owners have significantly upgraded since purchasing and have also recreated the very pleasing fenced entry now enjoys a beautiful in-ground swimming pool and has retained that more formal and original Japanese concept entrance.

This stylish home is close to all services and amenities and yet is wonderfully apart. Privacy and rural charm are strong desires for people on Salt Spring and this beauty delivers on both.
