Welcome to one of Salt Spring’s most refined rural estates where supernatural elements mingle with high tech environments to create an exceptionally liveable country home hidden within a groomed forested setting. The gently sloping acreage affords ocean view backdrops and an abundance of sunny, level plateaus for gardens and gatherings. The recently remodelled main residence has been elegantly appointed, and precise attention has been paid to creating perfect spaces for both quiet family moments and memorable evenings with friends. The kitchen is the home’s hub – more than a place to just cook – it features custom cabinetry, Viking and Sub-Zero appliances and exquisite antiqued-granite countertops. The oversized island augments practicality by accommodating a sink and maximizing prep area while integrating casual dining with the living spaces. The entertaining areas focus on an open plan that allow for a continuous visual line from rainforest to ocean and the muted colour palette enhances the natural beauty of wood, stone and steel accents. Attention to detail follows true to form in the zen-like master retreat with spa bath; invigorating guest suites and recreational areas that contrast between whimsical and artisan. The handsome billiard area visually anchors the passage between meditative and stimulating on the lower level. Outdoors is a sea of greenery and walking the property is a like exploring a private park.  Just up the hillside one discovers a private and luxurious guest cottage where lawns and gardens are the focal point by day and the star-studded skies above the Pacific backdrop take the evening in hand.  Further along and up the hilltop, is a large scale cutting garden with stacked stone beds, fruit orchard and vegetable plots. The acreage naturalizes into wooded walking paths, ponds and filtered forests before looping back to the main residence. Gated for extreme privacy, this hidden gem is located minutes from Ganges and the popular Andreas Voight and Peter Arnell Park trails. Exclusively listed with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada
