About the Property

4600 Square Foot Three Level Oceanfront Home. 4 Br, 3 1/2 Baths. Sleeps 6-7

Architecturally stunning, award winning, three level luxury oceanfront home. This home was the featured Vancouver Island Home of the Month in March 2012's Boulevard Magazine.

Upon entering the foyer, visitors are dramatically confronted by sweeping unobstructed ocean views via vast expanses glass soaring from the floor to the 25 foot ceiling and skylights. The home gives one the sensation of floating above the sea below. One guest described sitting in the living similar to being on the prowl of an ocean liner

Enjoy breathtaking ocean views from virtually every room in the house. The only sounds one hears are those of the sea. Breathtaking sunset views over the ocean and sensual mood lighting provide the perfect venue for romantic get-aways, honeymoons, or spiritual restitution. Gaze at the ever-changing seascape framed by the distant snow covered Olympic Mountains and the myriad birds and sea mammals.

La Mer is the perfect writer's retreat, the home features a well-stocked library.
Poetry and novels have been inspired and written here; CD's recorded.
La Mer has attracted musicians, scientists, physicists, sculptors, painters as well as an award-winning photographer. She provides a nurturing and inspirational environment for creativity as well as offering a soothing refuge from the madness and chaos of 21st century life

In addition to the main house on the 2nd and 3rd floors, La Mer features a large 2 bedroom suite occupying the entire first floor including its own kitchen, a huge entertainment room, separate laundry room, private ground-level entrances, and of course unobstructed ocean views from every room
