Property description

This loft is a one bedroom, one bathroom, all on one level guest house.Because it's located on the top of the building it provides plenty of light from large windows all around and great views of the surrounding property with narrow views of the Sooke basin. It is very quiet and private.The space below is strictly storage. The kitchen is spacious with all the equipment to prepare and cook all your meals.
The bedroom is large with a king size bed plus an antique wardrobe for your clothing. Huge windows on two walls make this room cheerful and bright. All the windows have venetian blinds to reduce the direct sunlight if you choose.
The loft has central heating with an oil furnace and a propane fire place in the living area for cozy comfort. A large screen TV is in the living area accompanied by cd/dvd player, dock charger and sound/pvr system.
Going down the back steps takes you to a laundry room that auto lights the second you open the door. Totally equipped with washer, dryer, hanging rod, laundry sink and even a toilet.
On the front, very large deck you'll find a BBQ under cover and table with chairs for out door cocktails and dinning. Great views of the property from this deck and glimpses of the basin. Looking directly over the driveway you can see my workshop and studio. In front of the studio are half round benches and a fire pit you're welcome to use when fire regulations permit.
Studio visits are welcomed whenever I'm there or can be booked with a simple phone call almost anytime. If you find a piece of art you would like to buy I can ship it home for you.
Over to the other side of the loft you'll find a pond and picnic spot with a large, although old picnic table. Also there is another picnic table closer to the loft on the grass over looking the hills and evergreens.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a career artist living on this 2 1/2 acre property way up the hill from the guest loft. Born in Alberta and moved to Vancouver Island in 1972. I have moved around a bit; Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto and finally back to East Sooke on the Island.

Why the Owner Chose Sooke, BC, Canada:
This is the second time we've lived here and it's hard to do better any where else. The property is tree'd and green with views and privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
There are three buildings on this land, very unique for the area. It was grandfathered to us this way. Today you can not build that many structures on this size of land. Thus I have an incredible studio, work shop, guest loft and a very attractive modified A-frame for us to live in. The buildings are all post and beam from logs harvested from the land. One would likely never be able to duplicate all this again. The climate is gentle; never to hot or to cold. Fair amount of rain in the winter months but that's why it remains incredibly green all year. Minimum snow fall in the winter months ( if any), almost welcomed for the beauty it creates in contrast to the vivid green. Here you have ocean, forrest and plenty of wildlife yet never more than an 1/2 to an hour from the city for shopping, entertainment and dinning. It's the perfect place for pets of all kinds, Alpacas to kittens, horses to chickens.
