When we think of a Bowen Island home for sale, we usually have visions of quaint little cabins and work/live studios. That said, we can’t help but love this contemporary masterpiece currently on the market, which offers the pinnacle of ‘island living’. Let’s check it out!
Known as the ‘Cape on Bowen’, this sprawling home sits on a massive oceanfront lot in the south west of the island. Which, of course, means that it’s just as easy to do some whale watching down by the shore as it is to hop on one of the island’s many spectacular hiking trails.
That said, when the home is as nice as this one we’d have trouble leaving it. Designed by renowned architect Paul Grant and only finished in 2021, it’s the perfect combination of high-flying design and appreciation for context. After all, when you’re tucked into a place as beautiful as Bowen Island, it’s hard not to take the landscape into account.
Offering over 10,000 square feet of living space, the home is split into three separate pavilions connected by a stunning sculpted glass roof. The main floor is for ‘regular’ living, with the kitchen, dining areas, and a lounge space for cooking and relaxing. Meanwhile, the top floor is the dedicated family living space, offering the majority of the home’s 8 bedrooms as well as work spaces and en suites.
The bottom floor is definitely where’d we hang out. Billed as the entertainment floor, it features a home theatre, a massive wine cellar, and a games space. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that this is also the level with an infinity pool on the patio, offering incredible views of the Howe Sound just steps away.
The final cherry on top? Functionality. Built to the highest standards on multiple fronts, the home features geothermal heating, solar power systems, and rainwater recycling. On the other hand, there are discrete parts of the home meant for meal prep and other ‘daily tasks’, like a massive, professional quality kitchen and a dedicated laundry room.
So yeah, it’s the whole package, and it’s got the price point to match. If you’re thinking that now’s the time to say goodbye to you Vancouver penthouse, you can pick this beautiful Bowen Island home for sale up for just under $20M.
