One of the two largest waterfront properties in the area, Shoreleave 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.
Shoreleave 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.
