WHERE THE LAND MEETS THE SEA!
An authentic modern farmhouse on over 10 acres of pristine oceanfront property. Relax and enjoy the West Coast at its best. Located just minutes from some of Canada’s finest private schools (Brentwood College and Shawnigan Lake School) and 30 minutes from Victoria. This property offers great privacy without isolation, being close to the village of Mill Bay and the Town of Duncan. A farm from a bygone era of simple times owned by the previous family for 60 years. The extensively updated original farmhouse sits atop high bank oceanfront property with spectacular sunrises off the back deck and views of majestic Mount Baker in the background. Warm summer evenings are spent on the beautiful cedar deck overlooking the meadows and orchard bounding with wildlife. See eagles nesting in the nearby trees and soaring over head and deer lingering amongst the wildflowers. Enjoying a leisurely stroll on your over 600 ft of secluded quiet beach, encounter a local blue heron, sea otter or seal. Dip your ties in the Salish Sea and go for a swim or kayak, or maybe try some of the best spot prawning in the area. Finish the day looking out from your deck as resident orcas pass by.
If huge foyers, home theatres and expansive games rooms are what you’re looking for, this is not the house for you. This coastal inspired home features 4 bedrooms, 3 ½ bathrooms, gourmet galley kitchen and is designed for relaxed everyday living on the farm. Oak floors with heated tile flooring through out with natural yellow cedar decks and shake siding. The large barn with a loft with its commanding ocean view has been updated as well, with a new roof and glass doors offers a blank canvas for whatever might inspire one on this magical property.
The property previously held farm status for minimal low taxes, and with the proper farm plan, could potentially be re-instated. This is a bonus for the future, as the property is not in the ALR, and there is potential to possibility subdivide should the new owner wish. The property has been upgraded with a new well, hydro, and natural gas and is ready to be enjoyed.
This is a true Lagacy property with the previous family raising 9 children on the farm and hosting 3 generations of weddings under the majestic chestnut tree. The current owners have lovingly updated the farm while maintaining its heritage in hopes that it will remain a tranquil refuge for generations to come. Live full time or make a fantastic retreat for family and friends with this very rare ocean front gem.
