Property description

This home has it all...private setting overlooking Samsun Narrows, and distant mountains, the house is nestled in a grove of Garry oak surrounded by wildflower meadows home to deer, rabbit and eagles. The town of Ganges is a five minute drive away, and Salt Springs most popular beach is just down the road. The main level and upstairs of this home offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and all the amenities, and comforts to make your stay a memorable one

This spacious, bright, modern new home, built in 2006 by a well known west coast architect, makes the most of the southwest exposure and surrounding landscape. Relax in your luxury retreat, with vistas from every window of sunny meadows, dappled oaks and distant forest, ocean and mountain views.

Just down the street are some of Salt Spring Island's most popular hiking trails and stunning lookouts. Situated in the Vesuvius area, this home is less than a two minute drive to the islands most popular swimming beach, and only a few miles farther to a fresh water lake, great for swimming and fishing.

Everything you need is close by; restaurants, shopping and the famous Saturday Farmers Market. After a day enjoying all that Salt Spring has to offer, you will welcome a return to this four bedroom home with its comfortable furnishings and fully equipped kitchen. Watch deer saunter by or eagles soar overhead or enjoy the sunsets from the soaker tub.

There is a suite on the lower level of this house which is rented out and has its own separate entrance.

*Linens and bath towels are provided. Please bring your own beach towels.
