Every once in a while we like to sit around and daydream about a carefree life on Vancouver Island. And, we might as well picture ourselves in whatever the best spots it has to offer. Well, today we found such a spot- say hello to ‘Eagle’s Landing’, a waterfront estate located in Central Saanich.
First off, we just have a soft spot for any property that comes with its own name. Why? Because we like to try and imagine who is so pumped about the new place that they say “This land shall henceforth be known as…” and then actually expect other people to keep up with them. It’s a powerful move.
Anyway, Eagle’s Landing is an estate sitting on some 8 acres of pristine waterfront, conveniently located just a short drive from Victoria. And, it comes complete with all the features and amenities you’d expect from an $11.8M price tag. Don’t believe us? Well, let’s get started.
The main residence is a sprawling 9,000 square feet and perfect for hosting, with 3 full living quarters spread throughout. There’s also a games room, a great room, a Turkish spa, and even a room outfitted for being able to smoke cigars (classic). Meanwhile, multiple kitchens and wet bars throughout the home mean that a great snack or drink is right within reach.
The outside is just as impressive as the inside. The massive patio runs practically the entire length of the house, offering incredible views of the ocean and the nearby islands. Craving a new hobby or sport? The property has a full-sized tennis court and multiple greenhouses waiting for you.
As a fun bonus, this home also features one of the most impressive water features we’ve seen- a stream-fed pond underneath the patio, highlighted by a fireplace. Pair that with a nice glass of wine and a summer sunset, and you’re going to be living the high life.
Now that we know this place exists, it’s time to plan our retirement around it. That’s healthy, right? You can check out the full listing for Eagle’s Landing on Sotheby’s Realty.
