The Vantage Point


An amazing aspect of this home is its stunning location. It is truly rare to find a home like this, situated on 2.5 acres, surrounded by uninterrupted views of nature, within a thriving community of interesting people (many of whom are renowned artists). Yet all of this is within a short commute to a major metropolitan city.

  • The placement of the home on the land provides very private yards with a large parking area in front that can accommodate about 5 cars, accessed by a curved driveway, and in the back with three distinct "fields."
  • There is sufficient acreage to simply walk in nature, or build gardens, raise chickens, keep horses, and play volleyball.
  • The location is quiet, so most of the sounds are of nature.
  • It is only a five-minute drive to Snug Cove with the ferry, stores, restaurants, and library. You can walk down the trails to the Cove within 30 minutes.
  • The ferry is only a 20-minute ride and then downtown Vancouver is usually about 30 minutes more.
  • Commuters can walk on the ferry and catch a dedicated bus downtown.
  • One can easily walk to Artisan Square in 15 minutes, with its various shops, a gym, health facilities (massage, acupuncture, physiotherapy). The Gallery holds many events with highly talented artists.
  • It is a 20 min drive to the golf course: This 9-hole golf course carved from a West Coast rainforest featuring magnificent views of Howe Sound. The 3,003 yard, par 35 layout designed by Russ Olson offers three sets of tee boxes that ensures challenge and reward for players of all skill levels.
  • Expansive, uninterrupted views of nature.
  • From the front of the house, with Mt. Gardner on the left, one looks over Killarney Lake to two mountains on Gambier Island and the mountains of the Sunshine Coast beyond.
  • The windows at the back of the house face magnificent evergreens.
  • The Master Bedroom feels like an oasis in the sky.
