Salt Spring Island house description

Get away to a cozy romantic mountain top home overlooking the Southern Gulf Islands and Georgia Strait. See the snow capped coastal mountains in the daytime, and the distant lights of Vancouver at night. Both sunrises and sunsets are beautiful, and different each day.

Sleep in total quiet, wake up in the morning to sounds of birds singing, and end the day with a drink on one of two decks, or relax in the two person soaker tub with a mountain view. The home is completely powered by green non-fossil fuel energy.

This peaceful retreat is surrounded by tall cedars and Douglas firs, mossy rock cliffs, and miles of hiking trails, yet only minutes from the main town of Ganges with its Saturday Market, art galleries, music, restaurants, harbour, kayaking, and shops.

With wonderful summers and mild winters, this home is suitable for vacationers, visitors with family or friends on the island but who would like to have separate accommodations, or those with longer term ideas, perhaps 'trying out' living on Salt Spring, living and working in a quiet, revitalizing location with a view. High speed internet, satellite TV, a fully equipped kitchen, and all the other comforts of a real home.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We are a married couple in our early 60's, originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba. We've lived on Salt Spring Island since 2002. We work part time, and when not working are very interested in outdoor activities--hiking, bird watching, observing nature. We are committed to keeping the property we own in as natural a state as possible, while enhancing the views and paths that allow maximum enjoyment of the beautiful west coast setting.

                  Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island:
                  Salt Spring Island is simply one of the beautiful places we have ever visited on our many travels (rated in top 10 worldwide by Conde Nast). In addition to being beautiful, the population is large enough (10,000) that all usual shopping and amenities are available, in addition to ones that are unique to the large artistic community here. Before we built our permanent home here, we stayed in several vacation homes to experience the island and get better acquainted with different locations. We love the high up places the most, seeing all the different kinds of weather come and go, and changes in light, as well as the peace and quiet. The longer we are here, the more we love the island. You can do just about anything here, the restaurants, harbour and galleries are great, as well as the many artists' studios, hiking, and talented local musicians who perform in many of the pubs and restaurants.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is surrounded by large trees, mossy rocks, and spectacular scenery in the distance. It is decorated in a comfortable, cozy style. The Gulf Islands have very few mosquitoes or other flying insects, and so you can relax on the deck, or have deck doors open in the pleasant summer weather. In only 10 minutes you can be down the hill and in the local town (Ganges), for shopping, groceries, restaurants, galleries, evening entertainment. The Saturday Market, from Easter to Thanksgiving is especially enjoyable for both local organic food and artistic crafts.
