Absolutely gorgeous 4938 sq.ft. hand-scribed log home situated on a magical & totally private 6.91 acre semi-treed property in Shawnigan Lake, BC.!
Completed in 2007, this 5 bedroom home offers the very best of materials and construction including solid timber beams, custom spiral staircase, vaulted ceilings of tongue and groove fir, and maple flooring. The top of the line geothermal heating system provides in-floor heat and forced air cooling throughout the entire house resulting in a comfortable, yet economic, living environment.
With vaulted ceilings, the great room is truly a GREAT space! Large argon filled “low E squared” windows throughout allow plenty of light in; keeping the cool out in the winter and the heat out in the summer.
Unlike most Log Homes, this house mixes traditional log work on the exterior, with conventional drywall interior walls, allowing the home owner to personalize by painting their preferred colors.
The gourmet kitchen is an inviting space, featuring custom cabinets, a large granite island with seating for four, and a full custom-shelved pantry. Professional grade stainless appliances include a gas cook top, and a built-in wall oven and microwave. The adjacent dining area is a flexible and welcoming space easily able to accommodate large dinner parties and gatherings, and double French doors open out to the expansive deck and outdoor dining area!
Located conveniently on the main-floor, the executive master bedroom suite includes a large walk-in closet with custom-built shelving, a bay window seating area and a lovely ensuite bath that includes double sinks, separate shower and jacuzzi tub! Open the master bedroom’s double French doors to enjoy your morning coffee surrounded by the beauty and serenity of nature only steps away….
Also located on the main level is a 3 piece powder room with granite countertops, and a large mud room with separate exterior entrance, washer/dryer hook-up, and stand-alone sink. All 3 levels have built-in central vacuum with ‘toe-kicks’ in the kitchen and mud room for quick clean ups.
The bright, open-concept design gives you fantastic views of the great room as you climb the spiral staircase to the top level, where 4 spacious bedrooms are located; each with vaulted ceilings and lovely outlooks. All rooms are wired for internet, phone, and television.
A spacious, 4 piece bathroom features a large linen closet and silestone countertops, and a large, airy sitting area is a great TV area for the kids!
The lower level features a large recreation area for fitness equipment, ping pong and/or pool table, and a TV/sitting area too! Large windows and in-floor heating make the open area inviting and welcoming for family and friends.
Separate access to the covered patio easily leads to the possibility of making this area into a secondary suite, perfect for guests or extra rental income!
An expansive sound-baffled room is a fabulous home office, sound studio or media room! A full bathroom and second laundry area are also located on this level…..
Outside, the totally private 6.91 acre property is gently sloped, with southern exposure and an abundance of wildlife to enjoy! Manicured lawn and garden areas complement the immaculate home, but the majority of the property is pristine and natural, with lots of space for additional out buildings or grazing for animals.
A 900 Sq ft garage (39 x 23 ft interior dimensions) is located to the West of the main dwelling.
It features 3 – 9 1/2 foot high vehicle bays, large 10 ft wide automatic doors (rated R15) R20 insulated walls, R30 insulated ceiling and is clad in cedar. There is a 100 amp 240 Volt Electrical panel and phone line from the house, and a greenhouse and a custom garden shed are also located close to the house.
Just 35 minutes from downtown Victoria, 20 minutes to Costco and shopping amenities, and a short walk from Shawnigan Lake, parks and recreational amenities, this delightful property is truly a special hideaway…..a peaceful and relaxing ‘back-to-nature’ lifestyle with all the modern luxuries!
