Property description

As you journey here to this wilderness coast of British Columbia, by road and ferry or seaplane, you will begin to relax as you enter a world of clear ocean waters, stunning vistas and...quiet. My custom-built cedar home sits on nearly three acres overlooking the waters of Georgia Strait and the snow-capped peaks of the West Coast. It is set among stands of fir, alder and maples, it is private yet sunlit.

There are two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom (one with shower and one with bathtub). Hardwoood floors of Russian birch are used throughout the open plan living room, dining, and kitchen area. The feeling is one of casual comfort with style. You may want to wake early to view the sunrise over the mountain-tops or catch a glimpse of the deer. Or you may wish to sleep in and let the warmth of sunlight on your face wake you.

Your day, in this romantic setting , may begin with breakfast on the deck followed by a stroll down the woodsy trail to the beach below to gather clams and oysters for lunch. Your outdoor adventures could include swimming, kayaking, beach combing, hiking, sailing. Or perhaps you simply enjoy an afternoon of power lounging and solitude.

A memorable way to end the day: bathe by moonlight in the leopard-painted, antique tub!

I bought this property over 20 years ago after travelling the world

and living in several countries.When I arrived on Cortes I fell instantly in love with the beauty and quiet of Cortes.We have clean lakes with sandy beaches and no motor boats.Hague lake is my favorite place in the world to swim,the water is warm.

Sowelu (wholeness) sits on 3 acres facing the sun and moonrise on the south point.It is a private road and quiet.The views are spectacular,I have had the good fortune to spend this last twenty years creating my little paradise here and love to share it with others.

There is a lovely forest just a short walk away and a trail to the private beach below.This is a friendly vibrant community and you can buy great organic food throughout the island.

You can walk along the beach to Hollyhock and enjoy a massage and organic lunch or dinner or just stay home in all the comforts of home.

This is truly a wonderful place to rest and rejuvinate.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: I found Cortes more than 30 years ago and fell instantly in love with the place. I have spent many years travelling the world and when I got here I knew I was Home! After many summers here I finally bought this lovely 3 acre's as bare land. At first I thought I would build a little cabin to store my things in between my travels. However, here I am more than 20 years later still enjoying creating more beauty. It's been an amazing journey. I have a house and a cottage in a flower garden and love to share them with others.

Why the Owner Chose Comox-Strathcona I, BC, Canada:
I love this South Point as we get sun from early morning to evening.The views are dramatic, of mountains and ocean and other islands and I love to watch the sun and the moon rise over the mountains. It is so quiet here. I feel the greatest gift I have had is to wake up to nothing but bird song, and often its eagles calling me to get up.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beauty is important to me.I am an artist and have designed and directed the building of this house. Really, I would like to be living outside, but this is the west coast and not Mexico so I had to have protection from the elements. However, there are windows and ocean views from every room in the house 8 skylights and loads of deck so it is a house full of light and decorated with textiles and unique objects from my world travels. One of my favourite things to do on Cortes is to swim in our warm lakes.
