F or the first time in 75 years the exquisite Queen Mary Bay is on the market, one of the finest and most exciting real estate offerings on the pacific west coast. Welcome to a secluded forested estate on one of Canada's most spectacular coastlines. Known as Queen Mary Bay, this 24.57 acre waterfront estate is a short drive from the city of Victoria on the southern end of Vancouver Island in the beautiful province of British Columbia. Queen Mary Bay's unique location on the shores of the Pacific Ocean offers rare privacy within close reach of central highways, an international airport and nearby ferry access to Vancouver and the mainland. The climate is mild all year round in our community, which is fast becoming a popular destination for professionals, retirees and those seeking a change in lifestyle. The main house and caretaker's cottage sit just above 1,500 feet of pristine shoreline equipped with private boat and seaplane moorage. Off the coast are small Gulf Islands and charming inlets that are easily explored by sailboat or yacht. The property's forest, trails and gardens are filled with lush vegetation and wildlife. Queen Mary Bay has a stunning natural beauty. Living surrounded by the ocean and the calm of the forest instills a profound sense of inner tranquility. One of the two largest waterfront properties in the area, Queen Mary Bay is an estate with unsurpassed privacy and extraordinary, pristine beauty. A large portion of the property comprises a forest of first-growth cedars and second-growth Douglas firs. An expansive field connects the main house, the caretaker's cottage, the beach and the ravine, offering 1.5 generous acres for any activity. The main house has been carefully designed for a couple to provide serenity and comfort along with breathtaking views of the forest, the beaches, the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf Islands while Mount Baker's glaciers tower over the horizon to the east. The estate's private dock allows for direct access by sailboat or yacht to the same charming islands, the surrounding picturesque inlets, and miles of local coastline. Queen Mary Bay is a half-hour drive from the provincial capital of Victoria and a ninety-minute car ferry journey either to the larger mainland city of Vancouver or to Seattle in the State of Washington – close to all imaginable services and facilities on the Pacific's northwest coast. This property has great potential for a custom designed private home with expanded living space, enhanced gardens and a larger wharf. It also holds promise for the creation of a private salmon spawning pond in the creek running through its protected ravine. While the estate is connected to the municipal water supply, it also has its own fresh water wells.
