A Modern Yet Rustic Beach House in Canada Asks $10.45M
At the edge of the Pacific Ocean sits a one-of-a-kind home that nature lovers will swoon over. It’s not in Cabo San Lucas or in view of the Santa Monica pier, and misty Monterey lies hundreds of miles away. Nestled comfortably beside the shores of Chesterman Beach in British Columbia, this secluded abode is modern yet rustic, like a sleek ski lodge by the sea. Despite the wintry winds Canada usually evokes, the picturesque escape is perfect for all seasons and is asking $10.457 million.
Laid bountifully out across a 1.21-acre lot, the property seems to breathe beneath the lush trees of the surrounding forest. Wooden boardwalks throughout the estate allow for constant changes of scenery, from shady wooded groves to seaside vistas. The main house sprawls across approximately 6,000 square feet, counting 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms within its rugged cedar siding. A two-bedroom guest house is situated nearby, while a one-bedroom caretaker’s cottage with a full kitchen guards the entrance. Perched amongst the foliage, an idyllic treehouse brings a hint of whimsy to the landscape.
Embracing the energy of the terrain, a hand-carved front door welcomes owners and visitors. The back door may be of more interest, though, to those who love to catch some waves or simply enjoy a sunset happy hour on the glass-enclosed patio.
Making the property even more enticing, it is exempt from British Columbia’s Speculation & Vacancy Tax as well as Foreign Entities Tax.
