An exuberant west coast garden surrounds this spacious three bedroom home. The tranquil setting of house and garden on the front two acres blends naturally into the forest and attracts a variety of birds. Patios and garden nooks invite relaxation and el fresco dining. The gardens include a badminton court, horseshoe pitch and outdoor hot tub.


You can harvest fresh herbs and berries from the organic garden to garnish your salads. Our deep well provides excellent drinking water. We support responsible environmental efforts by recycling, composting and using organic methods throughout the gardens.  


Well-maintained walking trails meander over creeks and through an undergrowth of ferns, old growth stumps and second growth trees on the back seven acres. Just across the road, there is a beach access trail to the ocean shoreline. At low tide you can walk out to Heriot Island and explore an amazing array of inter-tidal life.




The home features many amenities. The interior visually connects to the outdoors by many large windows, doors and skylight in various rooms. A lush collection of indoor houseplants seems to flow into the garden plantings outdoors. Many touches such as fir and tile floors, exposed beams, tasteful decorator colours and custom cabinets contribute to the feeling of warmth and quality.
