Property description

Architecturally stunning, award winning, three level luxury oceanfront home. This home was the featured Vancouver Island Home of the Month in March 2012's Boulevard Magazine.

Upon entering the foyer, visitors are dramatically confronted by sweeping unobstructed ocean views via vast expanses glass soaring from the floor to the 25 foot ceiling and skylights. The home gives one the sensation of floating above the sea below.

Enjoy breathtaking ocean views in complete privacy. The only sounds one hears are those of the sea. Breathtaking sunset views over the ocean and sensual mood lighting provide the perfect venue for romantic get-aways, honeymoons, or spiritual restitution. Gaze at the ever-changing seascape framed by the distant snow covered Olympic Mountains and the myriad birds and sea mammals.

La Mer is the perfect writer's retreat, the home features a well-stocked library.
Poetry and novels have been inspired and written here; CD's recorded.
La Mer has nurtured an award-winning photographer; she has inspired musicians, scientists, physicists, sculptors, painters. She is a nurturing and inspirational place....drawing and transporting energy from the sea to her guests.

La Mer includes a self-contained 2 bedroom suite occupying the entire first floor. It sports its own kitchen, a huge entertainment room, private ground-level entrances, and of course unobstructed ocean views from every room
