We’re all about the weird bonuses these past few weeks, with a vineyard last week and a wild greenhouse this one! We’ve stumbled across a stunning Salt Spring Island estate for sale, perched atop a hill and surrounded by lush forests. If the island life is calling your name, then this could be part of the dream.
Located in the Southeast portion of the island (some 10 minutes by car away from Fulford Harbour), the sprawling property features some 15 acres of lush landscape, the majority of which is wooded. So, you definitely won’t have to worry about any neighbours throwing parties around here… silence is the name of the game, and it wins in spades.
The home itself was designed by Phillip Van Horne, who is responsible for a multitude of awe-inspiring homes around the Gulf Islands, including Salt Spring. You’ll find 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, spread across 3 levels and some 4,200 square feet of space.
Alongside the main house, the property also features an ‘auxiliary building’ that currently functions as a guest house, but could easily be repurposed into an office or an art studio. No worrying about bothering guests when they come for a weekend, since you (health nut that you are) are starting your days at the crack of dawn.
But enough about functionality- we picked this home for the extra touches. The lower level is worth a mention of its own, featuring a pool terrace, a sauna, and even a ‘gallery space’/games room to kick back and relax at. After all, when your house is a work of art, why not add a few paintings and some statues to really complete the look?
Which brings us to the real showstopper here- the greenhouse. Custom built as part of the home, it offers a ‘cascading staircase’ that connects the main floor to the gardens below. And in it, you’ll find a smattering of plants to enjoy at your leisure, whether kicking back with a morning coffee or settling into your afternoon with a book.
This Salt Spring Island estate for sale comes with some seriously luxurious touches, and the price point reflects that. At a cool price point of $3,495,000, we might have to break a few piggy banks to find just the down payment. Oh well, we can keep dreaming!
