|"Oceanfront Masterpiece"||$2,100,000 (sold)||Salt Spring Island||Oceanfront|
Spectacular oceanfront property in two titles! Totally irreplaceable, and located at Salt
Spring Island's special "south end". |
Beautiful West Coast Contemporary jewel, lovingly created by the artist owner (Canada's renowned wildlife painter and environmentalis, Robert Bateman).
The home (designed by H. Schubart, who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright) offers dramatic oceanside living & dining, a country kitchen with breakfast area, guest wing (3 bed/bath, library), an invitingly separate master-sitting/ensuite with superb views, and an incredibly appealing studio/office "wing".
Storage areas, den alcoves (read or ponder life from these "withdrawing spaces"), windows on "coastal forest" scenes or on ocean vistas, plus a separate studio/suite (guest? nanny?), with its own entrance...it allows one to actively pursue both a family life, an entertaining focus, and an artistic enterprise.
Wood floors, expansive windows, skylights...easy access to the crushed shell cove and to the kayak/canoe "boathouse" (a driftwood gem) -- many unique aspects, here, that you will enjoy.
The many areas do not conflict, and it is possible to move through the spaces, from one use to another...it is how we would all like to live, if we could arrange our spaces to allow same. Here it is, awaiting your pleasure....
There is a separate double garage, with extra storage, too (a space for those collector cars??).
Meander down a pathway that is nestled into a re-creation of a coastal rainforest & enter this dramatic & eclectic world.
The second title is a beautiful undeveloped oceanfront property. There is a Schubart designed artist studio on the site, which could be easily upgraded to "cottage status", or create a second home.
These two adjacent oceanfront titles offer so many treasured spaces, that they must be seen to be truly appreciated. Call, to arrange your personal tour (24 hr notice required).
