4 Bed Single Family Detached in North Saanich
1110 Lands End Rd
MLS® NO: 899844
Conceived by the owners with no expense spared and brought to life by lauded local architect Jim Grieve, this regal estate is a culmination of seven years of painstaking work by a collection of Canada’s finest crafts people. Built completely on site, this English-Georgian style manor’s bespoke construction is apparent from the moment it comes into view. Within, intricate details and exotic materials intermingle to create a living space that is as comfortable and inviting as it is opulent. Vaulted, coffered, barrelled, and stained glass ceilings abound, soaring to heights reaching 15 to 18 feet throughout, while massive picture windows invite light to dance along marble floors. The main floor boasts balconies that wrap the length of the home’s waterfront side. Accessible from the main floor primary, great room, library and mahogany panelled family room, these balconies have their own fireplaces to enjoy the sea air and a glass of wine year round. The lower level boasts a sumptuous wine and scotch cellar, prep kitchen, unique panelled office with its own private bathroom, walk-in closet and elevator access, as well as two full guest suites and lovely garden room. These spaces open to a magnificent Basalt stone patio and lawn. A sunken garden with iron fountain punctuates the center; welcoming groups to convene at its water’s edge. Exceptionally suited to hosting, the patio’s western side widens to accommodate a formal dining alcove, semi-enclosed by a handsomely curved stone wall. To soak away stress, the eastern side of the patio accommodates a covered sunken hot tub and stone fireplace with built-in heaters, a bathroom and changing room, as well as access to the main floor. As robust as the home itself, a seawall runs the length of the waterfront culminating in a built-in boathouse with an integrated rail system from which to launch your craft and explore the world-famous waters of the nearby Gulf Islands National park Reserve.
