Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We purchased our property in 1991 after spending many months searching for the ideal oceanfront location that offered a forest of trees, absolute privacy & quiet. We wanted to be on west coast oceanfront with views over the Juan de Fuca Strait and Olympic Mountains .It had to be south facing to escape the cold westerly winds . We found our piece of paradise protected from the winds by the point at Sheringham Lighthouse . The 6 plus acre parcel with cedars, fir and old growth alder provided the material to mill and build. Then began the process of designing a creating a private retreat! It would take 10 years before we were ready to welcome our first guests in 2001. All of the trees that Ron fell and then milled , hauled around by an old retired backhoe we purchased from Ladysmith . The old machine named 'Lady' is still in use today. While I sold real estate for close to 20 years, Ron and his housekeeper basically managed and operated the business.

Why the Owner Chose Sooke:
The oceanviews are phenomenal and the everchanging marine activity with a variety of commercial and recreational vessels, and an occasional pod of orcas provides an interesting landscape through- out the day. When we built a path down to the very secluded beach (,that has no access for miles) and it opened up whole new experiences with the wild life in this area. The peaceful, serene setting just rejuvenates your soul ,sitting by the seaside surrounded by nature. All of this only an hr from Victoria and an hour and a half to the Airport and Ferries.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Our nieghboring property is 160 acres of trees and along with our dead end road location, the only people you will see are other guests. We do not have road signs to respect our guests privacy and our own as well. It is our sincere wish to provide & maintain the ambiance and comfort that we would hope to find in a destination retreat. Thanks for taking the time to read these thoughts June Williams
