Salt Spring Island has got a lot going for it, so it only makes sense to take a peek at a very nice home for sale over there this week! We’ve come across a lovely waterfront property that perfectly blends access to civilization with a seriously private location. Let’s check it out.
Located on the west side on the island, this close to 4 acre property borders the Mt. Erskine Provincial Park, but is a mere 10-minute drive away from the local hub of Ganges. So one day you can spend on the trails, and the next enjoying a local coffee shop or farmers market. Heck, you could probably do both, if you had the energy.
Of course, that’s if you even decide to leave the property. Literally on the ocean, the home is surrounded with incredible vistas of the water and Vancouver Island itself beyond. Do a little whale watching, maybe spot a bird or two… yeah, that’s a few hundred hours of fun right there.
Which leads us to the home itself. Originally built in 1972, the home got an extensive redesign in the past few years, bringing it into the modern era. Now, you’ve got some 4,800 square feet of an open floor plan, but with function at the forefront, including 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Lastly, no home of this quality is complete without a few fun amenities. This go around, you’ve got a sauna and a recreation room in the main house, plus a walk out basement for some true indoor/outdoor living. But, that’s peanuts compared to the main bonus- an indoor pool, with its own building housing it.
This Salt Spring Island home for sale doesn’t come cheap, with the list price at $3,995,000. But hey, the vast majority of these features are aspirational, and we think you’ll definitely get what you pay for here.
