Ah yes, modern cottagecore. We’re talking Merrell Hydro Mocs, a Brain Dead Nalgene water bottle, and a thrifted bucket hat paired with a Prada bag. You’ve seen it all over West Van and Coal Harbour, and you’re just about ready to shut the game down. Well, if you got the cash, we’ve got the perfect option.
Because we’ve found an incredible home for sale just outside Victoria that’s more Hamptons than PNW. Say hello to 4035 Locarno Lane, which is in a private neighbourhood in the Saanich area. Priced at $8,880,000 this waterfront home offers one of the most serene settings to enjoy those mid-afternoon cups of tea and finger sandwiches. And at that price, it better!

Although it was built back in 2000, the wood shingle exterior and ample natural lighting ensure the longevity of the design. After all, your cottagecore dreams shouldn’t involve around a square concrete fortress and a brutalist landscape. Nah, we’re after a softer aesthetic this week.
The home itself is divided into two wings sprawling over some 6,000 square feet. This includes 5 bedrooms, and more impressively, each of them features its own ensuite bathroom. Surprisingly, it’s also simpler than most of our ‘usual’ features- there’s no indoor gym, no theatre, and no in-home spa. We hope you’ve got a good book library to move in with. We’re thinking you start with A Room of One’s Own or some Anne Carson poems. You know, something heavy.
On the flipside, there is a ton of entertaining space both inside and outside. That previously mentioned wing design accommodates a couple of adorable little courtyards and a koi pond to relax beside. And, of course, what’s a waterfront home without a gorgeous infinity pool for those early morning dips?
Nothing, that’s what. For more information on this beautiful cottagecore home outside of Victoria, you can check out the listing right here.
