Description

Wonderful 4.94 acre estate offering park like lawns that gently slope towards a lovely pond and the woods of Blenkinsop Valley.

This really is a dream "Broadmead" estate offering wonderful views of Mt. Doug and the valley, ideally situated just minutes from town, yet in a unique rural setting surrounded by a cosmopolitan, sophisticated capital city. Call for full details!

PERSONAL NOTE FROM BRENDA:
Every advertisement for an estate property uses the same language. You know, like "spectacular" or "park like" but this place really IS spectacular. This place isn't park-like it is a park! Every time I visit I see another feature and can imagine yet another use for this amazing estate: corporate retreat; recording studio; art studio; film editing studio; or just the greatest private sanctuary. I know what you're thinking; am I a log house person? Well, you are. Sure it's a statement. But this is Vancouver Island, HOME of the cedar log. Where else other than Aspen, Vail, Whistler and a couple of other mountain communities would it work better? Yes, it's rugged-ish, hunting lodge-ish but as you can see from the style of the sellers it is a leather and lace kind of rugged. So whether you want to come in from the barn and keep your boots and cowboy hat on and talk horses and hay or take your clothes off and lounge in the hot tub and sauna and make hay, this place let's you do it all. Seriously, if you don't like it - replace it. It's the property that is the signature in this area.

This property sold June 2008.
