This property is one of the very few properties that are outside the Victoria Speculation Tax zones. Combining a world class location with lavish construction and contemporary amenities, this property dubbed “The View” at Willis Point is a stunning example of an expansive traditional European-style home perched atop 42 acres of rugged West Coast landscape. Built upon a solid bedrock foundation and surrounded by gorgeous arbutus forest, the principal residence is a scenic dream, boasting unobstructed westerly views of the Saanich Inlet, Saltspring Island, and the beautiful Malahat highlands from terraced granite patios spanning the length of the residence’s ocean side. Relax and refuel with the dramatic solar-heated infinity pool and 12-person hot tub flanked by gas-fueled fire bowls, accompanying giant fire pit, built-in barbeque and pizza oven.
From the moment one passes the custom 1930-built wrought-iron gates, premium fit and finish abounds from extensive stone work to coffered ceilings, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, pillared arches, intricate window and door casings, travertine tiled floors, and beautifully landscaped gardens. The custom Alderwood and granite gourmet kitchen and adjoining butler’s pantry are fit for grand soirées, with house-wide indoor/outdoor multi-media system ready to serenade.
A helipad ensures easy off-island access, while a 6,000 square-foot workshop/garage fitted with vehicle and motorbike lifts, RV/helicopter bay, in-floor heating, full industrial power hook-ups, and self-contained guest/caretaker suite ensure the property and its toys big and small are well looked after.
Outfitted for maximal longevity and minimal cost, this ultra-efficient compound boasts a rooftop solar panel heating system with gas backup supplying heat to home, hot tub and pool, lifetime warranty concrete shingles, as well as fully insulated interior/exterior walls and upgraded fibreglass triple pane windows for enhanced structural integrity and insulative properties.
