This private 14.97 acre property was carefully selected by the owners to create their gulf island country estate. Located in Gabriola’s south end, just minutes from the marina and float planes at Silva Bay you’ll find this gorgeous home nestled in a lush west coast setting. A winding driveway on the level property, takes you amid the salal and trees past the 2 bedroom guest cottage, currently rented for $750/month. The building site was carefully chosen, the structures planned in great details, as the owners imagined the perfect setting for their Island home. The spacious 3323 sq.ft home, features classic Craftsmen architecture in its use of tapered columns, covered porches, partially paned door, multipane windows, and earthy colors. The home features a large kitchen with center island and an eating bar, and skylights to increase the natural light. Enjoy the dining room with French doors leading to the covered deck, sit and listen to the crackling of the woodstove, or relax and read a book in the living room, lined with windows so that you can appreciate the natural surroundings.
