Forest House on the Ocean
House Recently Purchased - Salt Spring Island BC
The southend of Salt Spring is where homeowners who are drawn to natural beauty without bustle tend to gravitate. Here, less than a half hour from town, a palpable sense of calm prevails most every occasion. These factors clearly encouraged architect Heather Johnston to create a unique contemporary home with a distinct personality and respect for site. While its 5.75 acre oceanfront setting encourages exploration, by dividing a 2,650 sq.ft. floorpan among interconnected structures, the house itself provides a journey within its walls. An open plan great room, central kitchen, dining area, media room and home office all look towards the sea while a spacious master suite with dual ensuite baths, fireplace and den is reached via a bridge-like library hall. A private oceanside guest house lies about 60′ feet to the west of the main home. With a myriad of naturalized gardens, wooded walking paths, seaside beaches and sensational ocean outlooks, this timeless estate could easily become the place you would rather be than anywhere else. Exclusively listed by Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.
