445 Blackburn Road Salt Spring Island, BC



This extraordinary 160 acre ocean view estate offers supreme privacy with miles of sweeping views, rolling hills, wooded trails and serene open spaces in blissful abundance. The modern mountain house is a comfortable mix of traditional styling and contemporary finishing with steel, glass, wood and stone all playing out in a vibrant 4,300 square foot plan that is at once exciting and remarkably calming.  Overlooking vast coastal terrain that includes mountains, fields, forests, islands and open ocean, one can easily forget that urban life exists only 42 nautical miles away – until, that is, the sun drops and the city skyline becomes part of this view.  If you can pull yourself away, there are miles of trails to stroll, plenty of gardens to admire and a world of nature to rediscover.
