the lakefront house is located right in the hub of all the action on Vancouver Island. At your doorstep is great wakeboarding, waterskiing, gorgeous hikes to the highest peaks on vancouver island or to easily accessible waterfalls. There is also a provincial park a short 1 mile walk that features ancient First Nations petroglyphs. There is a good local boat rental if you are looking for a ski or touring boat or even a houseboat to head out and tour the lake. On the property we have long wharfs the streatch out from the beach for excellent swimming, tan maintenance, parking the boat or watching the sun come up with a hot cup of coffee. large lawns are a great place for summer games and there is a swing set for the kids as well.
Port Alberni is world renown as the Salmon Capital of the pacific. If ocean Salmon fishing is your thing this place is a bucket list destination. During the runs, fly fishing for 30lb Steel head in the local rivers is a unique experience as well. Summer surfing in Tofino is easily accessible for beginners and there are spots most advanced riders will also enjoy. Surfing is only about an hour down the road. Lots of days you can surf a clean morning break, be back on the property for some relaxing dock time and head out for a glassy wakeboard session in the late afternoon.
With so much to do its amazing that we spend most of our days just loving life on the property. But when you see this place for the first time, you'll understand its magical draw. There are few places we have ever been that match a hot summer day sitting at the end of the docks at Sproat Lake.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I grew up in Calgary, Alberta and, Like any calgarian then, in the mountains, on the rivers and in the snow. Growing up here was all about being outside with your friends. I was fortunate enough to spend my summers on a lake in northern alberta with my family. It made me want to create the same kind of place for my family and friends and now I have that opportunity. Professionally, I'm an advertising and portrait photographer. We split out time ,living in Asia and Canada with other adventures making up our year.
Why the Owner Chose Sproat Lake: Sproat lake has been part of my wife's family life for more than twenty years, and thankfully mine for the last 12. Our family has a large property where we have spent our summers falling in love with everything this magical part of the world has to offer. We had always dreamed of owning one of the properties next door, scarcely believing it would ever become a reality, especially this one. Last year our dream came true when we were able to purchase our dream from a good friend and neighbour.
This is really the perfect spot. Easy access, uncrowded, there is a picture perfect stream that runs through the back of our dream lot. Holly, huge pacific cedars, a well maintained large house, and of course, in our opinion, the most beautiful lake we could find.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: When I'm not there, I miss evenings having family dinners on the 300 sqft. patio, looking out at the sunset sky. We love our summer days out on the long wharfs over calm water. There are huge window in the living room and den that look out over the lake. The windows allow the lake to be part of every minute spent here. Watching the kids and their friends play on the open lawns, the stream that cuts through the back, theres no place like it.
