FOXGLOVE FARM – Located 10 minutes from Ganges town centre, this beautiful farm is one of Salt Spring Island’s original homesteads and encompasses approximately 118 acres in the awe-inspiring Mount Maxwell foothills. The property sits at an elevation of approximately 1200’ above sea level. 

Improvements include a Hank Schubart designed main residence, original log farm house (circa.1902) guest and farm hand cottages, caretaker home, large hay barn, drive shed, classroom building, propagation house, packing shed, multiple greenhouses and additional storage shelters. 

Terrain on the farm is gently sloping with scattered stands of forest, lush open pastures, hay fields, rich arable lands, and a beautiful pond. Seasonal streams and water rights have at various times, supported horses, cattle, sheep, crops, and a myriad of wildlife species. Maxwell Lake and Wilderness Areas border the farm, offering access to one of Salt Spring’s most beautiful mountain areas. Private roads provide access to most of the property, and the views of the nearby peaks from the farm are simply spectacular. Substantial fencing provides an excellent barrier to control livestock.

Currently the farm produces strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, asparagus, melons, greens, roots, a wide range of annual Mediterranean vegetables, as well as orchards of diverse varieties of peach, plum, apple, pear, quince, persimmon, fig, chestnut, and cherry.

The enchanting primary residence has been remodelled and updated to reflect gracious Old World living – elegant yet cozy and casual. This spacious home includes a chef’s kitchen, beautiful dining room, five private bedroom suites, sitting areas, and a grand living room with hewn stone fireplace. 

An abundance of natural woodwork and mullioned windows throughout the home provide a unique rustic mountain elegance aesthetic. A private studio/office is attached to the home via a mudroom breezeway. Beautiful garden walkways surround the home, including lush lawn areas, a backyard pool deck, and covered porch.

An original log farmhouse sits a polite distance from the main house and harkens to days gone by. Renovations of the 2 bedroom home include updated kitchen, bath and attached staff room. 

The property could be offered essentially turnkey, including optional purchase of farm equipment/vehicles and many home furnishings.

Foxglove Farm is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history in a private and pristine setting that will only grow more precious with time.
