DARE TO DREAM… This home, perfectly situated on 5 acres of waterfront, is a true masterpiece of architecture and offers the ultimate in luxury coastal living.  

Breath-taking ocean views through a stunning 18-foot-high 730 sq ft wall of glass are just the beginning… 3600 sq ft, all on one level. All built to exacting standards. No holds barred, no financial restraint… and the result is stunning.  

Fir beams span contiguously from the outside in, and when the eight panel Eclipse doors fold open, the ultimate indoor/outdoor environment is achieved. Your private sun-seekers courtyard complete with pond and waterfall comes into play and suddenly your entertaining space has doubled.  The outdoor, in-ground, heated pool on the other side of the home is surrounded by a stamped and coloured concrete patio that elegantly matches the interior slate floor tiles, again seamlessly blending the indoors and out. 

In the back of the home is a secret garden – idyllic, hidden and an oasis. 

Inside the home, no detail has been overlooked, with exceptional craftsmanship in every room. The kitchen boasts high-end appliances, custom cabinetry, a huge island, granite counters and tons of storage – a chef’s dream. The custom fir doors and trim is amazing and with the heated floors throughout, you’ll feel immediately at home. 

A family room with a ‘Greta Wilkinson’ etched glass wall and feature fireplace is big enough for 20 but comfortable with 2. In the home is an oversize guest suite with full ensuite, a ridiculously beautiful office space – You’ll want to plan to spend some time viewing this home. 

The master suite is an oasis of relaxation, with a spa-like ensuite bathroom with a barrier-free ocean-view shower. Double sinks, the huge shower and there is still room to add a soaker tub if that’s your thing but the outdoor hot-tub just 4 steps away might just work for you. The large closet has a convenient walk-through to the laundry – every detail was thought out.  

The exterior of the home is a combination of elegant and modern elements that maximize efficiencies and keep maintenance to a minimum. An abundance of decks both around the home and the inground 15×30 pool provide an idyllic setting for relaxation and entertainment.  

For guests, a charming cottage is located on the property, providing a private and cozy retreat with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. The detached double garage offers ample space for vehicles and storage, ensuring that all your needs are met and be sure to note the solar panels – bringing your yearly hydro cost way down. Total electrical costs for the year are under $4500 and that includes heating the pool.  

A long winding driveway starts you on this adventure and you’ll be pleasantly surprised again and again.  

Some of the less exciting (but very important) items are: 

  • 45kw generator – you can run the entire home on this in case of a power outage 
  • 1000 gallon propane tank 
  • 2 Heat-pumps 
  • Wine room on the lower level – ok, this one is a bit exciting 
  • Fenced 2 acres – great if you have dogs or want to keep the deer out of your garden 
  • 24’ x 8’ greenhouse with auto opening windows 
  • Bug screens for the Eclipse doors and the doors to the pool area 
  • Huge cistern of 15,000 gallons – used for watering the gardens 
  • Water well that produces 30 gallons per minute 
  • 10×10 shed plus a 10 x 15 dog shed and fenced run 
  • Lower deck  – a beautiful spot for a glass of wine 

Far too many amenities to list here… you really need to see this one.
