Have you been living the minimal lifestyle, but are ready to swap it for one that is undoubtedly maximalist? A massive, hidden estate has gone up for sale on Vancouver Island, and what’s more, it’s being sold with everything inside it! Time to check out ‘My Time’ and fantasize about our new life as a nautical millionaire.
Located in the Greater Victoria area, the estate sits on a waterfront plot of land overlooking the Juan de Fuca Strait, the home could be a poster child for elevated Vancouver Island living. You’ve got 2.5 acres of land here, but the real focus is the huge main house.
Done in a contemporary Northwest style, the home has got a rustic aesthetic mixed with an open floorplan. Stretching over some 12,000 square feet, the space features pretty much every kind of amenity you could ask for, ranging from a sauna and workout room to a home theatre. Feeling tuckered out after a long day? Head to the seaside hot tub to unwind a little bit.
But, the real focus here is on the insane, 21,000 litre saltwater aquarium. Stocked with local fish and molluscs, it’s like a little slice of the PNW sea created especially for you. Our advice? Turn it into a faithful recreation of Bikini Bottom, since a starfish is already in there.
With 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, it’s also a very easy spot to be hosting your guests from out of town. If that’s not enough, there’s also a self-contained suite above the detached 3-car garage, just in case. Sadly, there’s no deepwater dock for them to park their yachts, but we’re sure you could work something out on that front once you move in.
Of course, the price reflects the fact that you’re getting both the house and everything inside it. Priced at a cool $14m, this house is firmly in the “in our dreams” category. But, since a teardown in East Van is also in that category, why not go for broke on the dreams? To check out this incredible Vancouver Island estate for yourself,f just click here.
