Cowichan Bay house description

This is an architecturally designed, west coast style home, red cedar clad walls, vaulted ceilings, wood and ceramic tile floors, open living-room dining- room. All rooms have views of Cowichan Bay, Genoa Bay, Seperation Point, Mt Tzuhalem, and Saltspring Island. Elevator to all four floors as well as staircases.The house is situated on 1.75 maturely landscaped acres. The property slopes to a high steep bluff with trail access to the beach.

This house will entertain you. Things to do: swim lengths in our 36' x 18' indoor pool, have a sauna, watch your favourite movies in the home theatre, relax on the decks and watch the eagles and yachts sail by, curse the many deer as they eat our flowers, listen to the seals barking, play billiards, walk down to the beach. On less pleasant days you can sit in the atrium and enjoy the plants. The kitchen is set up with an eating area and entertainment centre so the cooks need not be isolated.

The third floor has a large master bedroom suite, complete with jacuzzi bath from where you can enjoy views. It also has an ensuite, sitting area with cable TV & DVD and a private deck facing west.

The second floor has two ocean facing bedrooms. The 'purple bedroom' with queen bed, also has a view of the indoor pool. The 'blue bedroom' has a double bed. Both bedrooms share a full bathroom with a jacuzzi sitz bath, again overlooking Cowichan Bay.

From the lounge area you go up a step through the bar area into the office. There are three desks as well as a sitting area, a futon bed, and a computer with high speed wireless connection. An intercom system serves the entire house.

A caretaker lives in the suite above the garage and will answer any questions or concerns.

The colourful village of Cowichan Bay, is approximately a 5 min drive north. It has restaurants and other attractions. We recommend that you take a driver guided tour of the many vineyards in the area, as most will let you sample their products when you visit, drinking and driving is strictly enforced.

Victoria is about 45 minutes south, full of museums, government buildings, restaurants, shopping, theatres, etc. Duncan, 15 minutes north, is good for everyday shopping and has most amenities. A half hour drive north of Duncan is bustling Nanaimo, with shopping malls, a harbour, theatres, clubs, etc.


Keywords: Oceanfront, hilltop, beach access, indoor swimming pool,media room, sauna, wine country, elevator, over 8,000 sq ft., 3 stories, plus basement, secluded, solarium, 3 decks.
