Magnificent Oceanfront Estate on a Private Cove!
This magnificent oceanfront estate is simply breathtaking in every aspect!
Custom built in 2009, the impressive 6753 sqft residence was constructed over a 2 year period using top quality materials and skilled trades people.
An open cathedral entry welcomes you into the home, the space highlighted by rich hardwood flooring, dramatic detailing and custom woodwork. The bright and airy foyer leads through to a formal living room with fireplace and a spacious dining room: both enjoying the spectacular oceanfront setting and exceptional views!
The kitchen/great room is truly the heart of this special home! Spacious and bright with ample counter and cabinet space, the kitchen boasts top grade appliances, a large center island with bar seating, and a lovely, bright, breakfast area. High vaulted ceilings showcase exposed beams over the expansive sitting area, with a huge skylight, and French doors that lead out to a seaside terrace. A roomy walk-in pantry offers additional storage, and the adjacent utility/laundry room includes double washers/dryers, fully organized craft/storage closets and double sinks. An oversized island is ideal for food preparation or catering set-up while entertaining, with convenient commercial dishwasher and outside access to the guest parking area.
The sumptuous main level master suite enjoys splendid views, with a luxurious 5-piece ensuite bathroom, oversized walk-in closets, and a private exercise or yoga room. A study/office enjoys a generous space to work, with a large picture window that overlooks the front gardens. Two additional bedrooms are also located on the main level, each with high, vaulted ceilings, large walk-in closet, and private ensuite bath.
Upstairs, an expansive, open games/TV area easily accommodate two large billiard tables, and 2 spacious bedrooms each have large walk-in closets and ensuite baths. A huge ‘bonus’ room offers convenient walk-in storage space, or it could be used as a home gym, artist’s studio, or office.
Outside, the 1.53 acre property was beautifully manicured and excavated to create a spectacular private point with expansive shoreline! Just off the kitchen and dining areas, a huge covered deck is perfect for summer entertaining and outdoor dining….
A private cove with pebble beach is a sheltered spot to launch a kayak or small boat, and a perfect spot for the kids or grandkids to play! Enjoy exploring the sheltered coastline from this idyllic setting…. Enhance your fresh westcoast cuisine: excellent crabbing and fishing ‘hot spots’ are at your doorstep too!
