Weston Lake farmhouse description

This old farmhouse sits on 23 acres and offers a chance to relax with a good book, take a long walk, or practice your backstroke in beautiful Weston Lake. The house offers plenty of room for friends and family gatherings.

This large home has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, family room and living room. Fabulous views of the lake and the short path that leads you to our private dock (shared only with the farm manager and one other tenant on the property). There is a wood stove in the Family Room and Fireplace /w insert in the Living Room.

Guests will have access to the whole house, yard and all areas of the property (except pastures occupied by the Dexter cattle), including the wooded areas, and the private path leading directly to the Salt Spring Cheese Farm right next door.

We bought this old farmhouse last summer and are in the process of bringing back interesting details and removing the 70's decor. We are a work in progress. If you like HGTV, you'll appreciate our efforts. We've priced the house lower during this first year as we take on this great project.

                  With Weston Lake out our front door, Salt Spring Cheese Farm next door and Stowell Lake Farm (complete with event space and yoga retreats) across the street, what's not to love. Take a quick 5 minute drive down to Fulford and get coffee or lunch, or grab the ferry to Victoria. Turn right at the end of the road and take Beaver Pt. Road straight to Ruckle Provincial Park.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Mike and I live in Santa Cruz, California. In our life stateside, Mike is an IT director at UCSC, and I help nonprofit organizations to develop bricks and mortar projects that sustain their operations. Mike and I both grew up in the Bay Area, and before settling back in the area I had lived in Los Angeles, New Jersey and Boston.

                  Why the Owner Chose Weston Lake:
                  Having spent quite a lot of time on Salt Spring for family vacations when the kids were small, I dreamed of having a place on a lake that could serve as a gathering place as our children grew up and became more geographically diverse. I have always been interested in gardening and have made more farming connections over the last couple of years. While I was taking a 12 month course on permaculture this property became available. Although it seemed outside the realm of possibility, we were able to purchase this amazing property and are excited to share its beauty, and the experience of a working farm, with others.
