Ah yes, that fun mix of hippy artists and the ultra rich, and often with some serious overlap between the two. If you’re hoping to grab a slice that sweet island living pie, we’ve found a pretty fantastic waterfront estate on Bowen Island for sale. Let’s check it out!
Located on the south shore of the island, the property offers just over 1.5 acres of rugged waterfront living. While you won’t exactly be frolicking down to the beach here, there are quite a few patios kicking around to soak up the sun and the sea from every angle. Ok, nice.

The home on the property is pretty darn nice as well. Built in 2009, it uses a Scandinavian-inspired design to maximize natural light and open spaces. It’s not exactly the most modern home we’ve covered, but, it definitely strikes a nice balance between design and functionality.
Speaking of functionality, it would be a supremely easy place to live. Throughout the 4,800 sq. ft. of space, you’ve got 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, making it a great choice for a family or someone who likes to have guests every weekend (and trust us, they’ll want to come).
There are a couple of extra bonuses already, like an outdoor kitchen for summertime BBQs and a very well manicured garden, you know, just in case you get a little bored of the ocean. But, we definitely think a few more touches would really make this place special- maybe convert one of the bedrooms into a gym/yoga studio, and absolutely toss in a hot tub for those after dinner dips.
As you can probably guess, this Bowen Island home for sale doesn’t exactly come cheap. If you’re hoping to start living exclusively on island time, it’ll set you back some $8,950,000. But hey, we can always dream about it, can’t we?
