Property description

Vesuvius is the best place to be! Warmest, sunniest part of the island yet only a few minutes from Ganges. Ocean Meadows is two minutes by car or less than 15 on foot from sunny West facing Vesuvius Beach, as well as a coffee shop and licenced restaurant with oceanside deck. It is less than a 20 minute walk via a beautiful woodland trail to South facing Baker Beach.

Full inside and out renovation and landscaping just completed! Result: A beautiful, high end all-new home in one of Salt Spring's very best locations in the heart of Vesuvius. Situated on a knoll which receives all-day sun, Ocean Meadows enjoys unobstructed views over unspoiled farmland to the ocean in the West.

Enjoy morning coffee on the private master bedroom deck (with twin loungers and sun umbrella) and spend lazy days in a hammock or lounger under the 400 ft.² covered south-West facing patio.

Inside this beautiful 1500 ft.² home you will find a bright open layout combining every modern convenience with island charm. The master bedroom features an elegant Italian Queen bed with new top-of-the-line pocket coil memory foam encased organic cotton covered mattress, sliding doors to its own deck, walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. The ensuite comes with heated floor, freestanding soaker tub, suspended vanity and plate glass shower. The second bedroom with solid pine Queen bed with high end mattress is immediately adjacent to an ultramodern full bathroom with suspended vanity and tub/shower. (Two additional children/pre teens can be accommodated on the two new matching living room sofas, the back cushions of which remove to provide comfortable flat 5'8" long beds .)

The spacious living room has a new high efficiency wood-burning fireplace insert (colder months only, as Saltspring has frequent fire bans in the hot and dry season) as well as lovely views. The dining room features seating for six. A beautiful fir vaulted ceiling with two large great room ceiling fans spans the living and dining rooms.

The fully equipped kitchen has the same views and is completely modern with high-gloss soft close cabinets and new high-end stainless steel appliances. Plumbing fixtures throughout the house are Grohe.

The main floor laundry with ultra modern appliances is in a spacious foyer outside the bedrooms.

Living room and kitchen enjoy direct access to the covered outdoor seating area. This area features double hammock, hanging chair, USA - made high quality 6 person dining set and twin loungers all with comfortable Sunbrella cushions.

We think Ocean Meadows is in one of Salt Spring Island’s very best locations. Vesuvius and Baker beaches, West and South facing respectively and among the island’s warmest, are within walking distance. The house is also within walking distance of a coffee shop and store, and of a licensed restaurant with ocean front patio, specializing in local fish. Yet the location of the house is private and peaceful. Ganges with all its amenities is a 5 to 10 minute drive away.

Our family has been part and then full-time island residents for 20 years. We have owned several homes here over the years including waterfront properties. We think that in privacy, views, sunshine, warmth and convenience, Ocean Meadows is the best of them all! We are confident that you will agree and look forward to welcoming you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: This is our family 'island get together' home. We all love Salt Spring and especially Ocean Meadows, the perfect open and sunny place for us all to gather. We purchased last year and have only recently completed our whole house renovations, so this listing is new, hence the lack of reviews. We are determined to exceed your expectations and make your experience completely positive. We think the repeat guests ….and the positive reviews... will follow!

Why the Owner Chose Vesuvius, BC, Canada:
An unbeatable location in the pastoral heart of Vesuvius, close enough to be walkable to beaches and yet private and uncrowded. A sunny south-west facing knoll in a pastoral location close to beaches is comparatively rare and highly desirable. It's hard to overstate the importance of a sunny location on Salt Spring. Add room to breathe and lovely views and you have something wonderful.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A house that 'tracks the sun' almost all day long, but if it gets too hot, a large shaded seating area. Eating all your meals outside for a large part of the year, and being able to sit outside year-round. Peace and privacy. Retreat, romance, family gatherings... Perfect for all this and more.
