Quadra Island house description

An exuberant west coast garden surrounds this spacious three bedroom home. The tranquil setting of house and garden on the front two acres blends naturally into the forest and attracts a variety of birds. Patios and garden nooks invite relaxation and el fresco dining. The gardens include a badminton court, horseshoe pitch and outdoor hot tub.

You can harvest fresh herbs and berries from the organic garden to garnish your salads. Our deep well provides excellent drinking water. We support responsible environmental efforts by recycling, composting and using organic methods throughout the gardens.

Well-maintained walking trails meander over creeks and through an undergrowth of ferns, old growth stumps and second growth trees on the back seven acres. Just across the road, there is a beach access trail to the ocean shoreline. At low tide, you can walk out to Heriot Island and explore an amazing array of inter-tidal life.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1980

              About the owner: We moved to Quadra Island in 1980 choosing the community and island life style in which to raise our children. Now retired, we enjoy winter travel and in the summer offer our home to visitors.

              Why the Owner Chose Quadra Island:
              On our first walk through this 9 acre property we were enchanted with the ferns, forest and streams surrounding the home site. Over the past 33 years, we have developed the gardens and a network of trails that visit favourite trees and special places.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              All rooms of the house have garden views. The badminton court, horseshoe pitch and bocce game invite recreation. The hot tub and patios encourage relaxation while the garden graces it all.
