1390 Dorcas Point Road, Nanoose Bay, BC

About 1390 Dorcas Point Road - SOLD -

Truly an artistic masterpiece that is unmatched in setting. Imagine experiencing nature all around you from virtually every room in this unparalleled Modern Luxury waterfront estate. This masterpiece is designed by renowned architect, Daniel Evans White whose creative designs will be celebrated at the Museum of Vancouver in the fall of 2013. Built on a steel frame, the exterior walls are made of glass capturing the original idea of West Coast Modernism. Instead of building an enclosed space with the purpose of keeping nature out, nature becomes the inspiration of the building by opening the space up and inviting nature to flow freely throughout the home. Experience the breathtaking views of the sun dancing along the water or the setting sun lighting up a cruise ship as it passes by.

The interior of this 4,224 sq ft home is finished with a perfect blend of stone and fir flooring. The beautifully smooth unfinished fir comes directly from Queen Charlotte Island and is showcased in the handcrafted design of the vaulted ceilings and built-in furniture and shelving with clean timeless design. The stone work continues onto the many patios that flow off every corner of the home. The grand front door opens off the center courtyard with a pine tree as the focal point. Despite the open concept, the home offers private areas such as the study with the see through wood fireplace with natural stone masonry. Welcome each day with inspiring views from the master suite complete with a private patio, 5 pc ensuite and impressive 17x9 walk in closet. The unique acoustic design allows music to flow throughout the home from the grand piano situated in the living room. The comfort of the home is maintained year round by 3 heat pumps as well as radiant in floor heating. Situated on 2.19 acres populated by Garry Oak, Fir, Arbutus and Cedar trees this property offers complete privacy. Lights high in the trees illuminate the long drive as it passes by a natural spring fed pond that is the home of many birds and wildlife. The private waterfront boasts coves that invite you to swim or launch your kayak and paddle to the nearby Balenes and Gerald Islands. Walk the short distance to Moorecroft Regional Park for a picnic or explore the seemingly endless natural forest area.

This rare home is located in an exclusive area with many well-known celebrities on neighbouring properties. A home of this caliber on this prestigious street is a rarity and must be personally viewed to be truly appreciated. All data and measurements are approximate and should be verified.
