Welcome to Retreat Island where nature is at its finest. Located just off the West side of Galiano Island is where you will find this 7 acre paradise. Arrive at the private dock where the float can accommodate year round sheltered moorage of a boat of up to 50 ft and additional moorage on the other side. Explore to discover whales, eagles, an Arbutus meadow, spring wild flowers and a small white shell beach. The Island was subdivided into two lots. A conservation covenant was placed on one half of the island and that parcel was donated to the Galiano Conservancy Association. Other than invited guests, there are no other visitors to the island as there is no public access. The island is serviced by a submarine cable providing a reliable 200 amp connection to the grid. Power lines on the island connect to the cable and feed into the buildings. There is a high speed internet connection. There is a rainwater collection system that services 3 storage tanks with a total capacity or about 6000 gallons. The home was built around the existing old growth fir trees and was architecturally designed to take advantage of the islands distinctive features with a minimum of disturbance. Post and beam internal framing and extensive decks create a feeling of living within the landscape, rather than imposing on it. The layout and the abundance of windows maximize the gorgeous ocean view. Vaulted ceilings and skylights make the home beautifully bright. The kitchen and living room look out over Trincomali Channel south toward Saltspring Island. Enjoy meals on the covered deck off the kitchen. The family room, which could also be a bedroom, has a cozy window seat and access to a large deck. The master bdrm with 2 piece ensuite is upstairs surrounded by many windows. Behind the main house sit a 2 bdrm guesthouse and a studio, which continue with the same architect's living amongst nature theme. What an awesome Retreat!

WATERFRONT ACREAGE.... 16 acres of walk-on waterfront property at the South end of Gabriola Island. This is a very unique offering in an area of quality executive homes. A waterfront property of this size rarely comes onto the market and this one is very special. The land climbs up slightly from Hyham Road and then slopes gently to the waterfront giving you numerous places to build your dream home. The waterfront is protected with a few small islands directly in front and has an easterly exposure. Silva Bay Marina is just around the corner to the North and Drumbeg Park is to the South. The property is forested with many old growth and 2nd growth trees (logged in the 1950's). No well or septic in place but with a property of this size, neither should be a concern. The zoning allows a home with a suite plus a secondary cottage. Access is off the end of Whalley and Hyham Road. The lot lines are a little hard to find, so call your Realtor or Martin Velsen to arrange a viewing of this property. 250-751-1223 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
