Location: Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
Price: C$9,750,000 (US$7,223,292)
Those interested in having the best of both worlds may find it at this home in Vancouver, British Columbia. The extremely private estate includes 42 acres of land and offers breathtaking views of both the Pacific Ocean and Saanich Inlet—yet it’s only a 20-minute drive to downtown Victoria. For those who prefer to travel by air, it also has its own helipad.
“It’s very well positioned for the best views and set up so the residents can come and go unnoticed,” said sales representative Logan Wilson of Sotheby’s International Realty in Canada. “It’s a really calm property and you get a relaxed feeling, as if you were at a spa, when you’re there. All you can hear are the birds. The biggest feature of this property is the escape factor,” he said.
The 16,000-square-foot mansion has seven bedrooms and eight full bathrooms.
“The house is extremely well built,” Mr. Wilson said. “The owner spent five years constructing the home to ensure that every conceivable aspect of his vision was executed properly. Even though it’s so large, every interior wall and every floor is insulated, which makes it feel quite cozy.”
The house was also built to be extremely energy efficient—the pool, the hot tub and the home itself have solar heating, though they also have a gas backup that kicks in when needed.
In addition to the helipad, the home has deluxe indoor and outdoor kitchens, an infinity pool and a hot tub, a wine cellar, a fitness room, a large automotive shop within the attached garage, media rooms and large indoor and outdoor living areas.
The Vancouver Island region is famous for its protected and unspoiled natural beauty, which is a particular draw for serious bird and whale watchers, as well as golfers, hikers, bikers, kayakers, campers and even surfers. Those who prefer indoor pursuits can visit the area’s many museums and heritage sites, enjoy live theater, tour vineyards or be pampered in local luxury spas.
