19 Jan Pender Harbour x B.C’s Finest Coastal Property
I thought I’d see what was for sale in my neck of the woods despite wanting to look at places in crazy hot destinations. Some of you know that @S_Gerard is currently enjoying the beaches of the Mayan Riviera for the next 6 months and I’m a tad bit jealous. Regardless the place I call home has some of the most astounding real estate backed by breath taking surroundings.
This 8 bedroom home tucked away in between Vancouver Island and the coastal mainland of Vancouver and offers a modern life surrounding by rustic lush greenery….did I mention it’s also sitting right on the edge of the Pacific Ocean? Pender Island is home to 2500 residents, and for its size, it has a wonderful community of people. The summer’s here are something I can remember from my childhood the addition of this property in 2011
This property is situated on 21 acres of pristine scenery surrounding the property at every corner. This 8 bedroom home itself is 8468 sq ft and also has 9 1/2 bathrooms just in case you have a full house. The scene out front is what you’re paying for and you also get 1000 feet of private beach to enjoy throughout the year.
The home design in itself ups the ante in modern living on any of the gulf islands here. Inside you’ll find fully exposed architectural backed by reinforced concrete walls. This is combined with Pennsylvania Blue Stone floors and Douglas Fir beams throughout the inside which brings some of nature inside.
What I love inside this home is the open living and dining room which extends outside thru bi-fold doors which blurs the lines of inside and out. Just a few steps more and you’re enjoying the ocean views on the heated patio which has a lovely fire pit and in ground hot tub right on the water’s edge. This is definitely a home for entertaining guests or having the entire family and then some over for an unforgettable getaway. There is no property that even compares in BC right now, perhaps unless you felt like buying up your own island here.
I’m sure by now you’ve noticed the guest house just to the side at the edge of the dock. Of all the properties I’ve covered here on Luxury Branded I think this one takes the prize for best guest house. This in itself would be a multimillion dollar home with that location so let’s take a good look at what’s going on there.
This “boat house” also features 1,240 sq ft of caretaker living space which is larger than any one bedroom condo you’ll find back in Vancouver. The design of these quarters is spot on with the rest of the house and I’d be a happy camper to call this little pad home. As for guests well they’re going to enjoy a whole host of outdoor activities literally steps from the front door!
A property like this is of course being handled by Sotheby’s here in Canada and I highly recommend giving Jamie a call if you’re interested in knowing more. He is the go-to guy for luxury property on the west coast of BC here and you can reach him at the number you see to your right or follow him on Twitter as well as make a new friend and add him via Facebook.
