This gorgeous Waterfront Estate features a 4500 sq-ft luxury oceanfront home, complete with fine furnishings, four professionally decorated bedrooms, three Jacuzzi tubs and a seven-person hot tub. The large fully equipped gourmet kitchen includes everything you need to throw together casual meals, or create gastronomic delights fit for a king. Spectacular views of the ocean and mountains are available from the large patio as well as the spacious living and dining rooms, and each of the bedrooms. Located on a magnificent five-acre waterfront setting with towering cedars, blooming cherry trees, manicured lawns and large colorful gardens, this property will meet your needs whether to escape and relax, participate in home soccer matches, or enjoy a family get-together.

The large tastefully decorated and furnished dining room and living room open through several glass double-doors to the patio overlooking the ocean and mountains, ensuring that you can enjoy the view from every couch, chair or comfortable seat.

The large second floor family room has a wet bar and fridge and built in mahogany shelving and desk filled with a variety of hardcover books and novels for everyone’s reading pleasure. This luxury accommodation features four large professionally decorated bedrooms with quality furniture, each with its own fireplace, personal washroom, Jacuzzi tub or bathtub and spectacular oceanfront views. Should additional sleeping space be necessary, hotel style cots are available, as is a queen sized pull-out couch in the den downstairs.

Perhaps you love to cook and entertain? The large fully equipped gourmet kitchen complete with two convection ovens, gas stove, large stainless refrigerator and freezer, and two dishwashers includes everything you need to throw together casual meals, or gastronomic creations fit for a king! If barbecuing is more your style, you won’t be disappointed by the first-rate stainless BBQ and tools. If you have plans to entertain, the 8-place cherry dining room suite and place settings for 12 will ensure that your guests are as comfortable visiting you at the estate as they may be in your own home.

This five-acre property will easily accommodate home soccer or baseball matches, followed by roasting of marshmallows and sausages over the fire pit. For a change of pace, a computer with Internet, board games, large flat-screen television, DVD / VHS machine and movie library are available in the den.
Rent month-to-month or trade if your 3-5 bedroom house is located close to University of Victoria.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We fell in love with this beautiful property and purchased it in 2007 dreaming about the day we can live there full-time. We currently reside in Victoria BC while our four children attend University of Victoria. We both had fulfilling 30-year careers in the Canadian Armed Forces and Rob is now employed in the aerospace industry and Anne is employed in international higher education. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our home with you.

Why the Owner Chose Gabriola, BC, Canada:
As soon as we drove up the laneway surrounded by cherry blossoms in full bloom, we knew we were in for a treat. It got even better when we stepped into this gorgeous home with its meticulous quality craftsmanship, tasteful decor, spacious bedrooms, high end kitchen, amazing views and private surroundings. We just had to have this slice of paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
When the children were young we loved playing soccer in the field and to this day we enjoy roasting marshmallows in the open fire pit. Entertaining friends and family in the large kitchen and spacious dining and living rooms makes everyone feel special. Watching the sun set while we enjoy a bottle of wine or reading our books in our adirondack chairs in the sun are blissful moments. We enjoy the spectacular views from every window...I can just go on and on...
