Private Cortes Residence on Oceanfront Acreage
Beautiful west-coast style residence situated on a 2.47 acre oceanfront property located in Whaletown Bay on Cortes Island, just minutes from the Cortes ferry and the government dock. The acreage has a diverse, intriguing topography complemented with a beautiful forest. The location provides bright, sunny exposure and approximately 245ft of southeast-facing oceanfront. The home has been situated at the high point of the property and nestled into a rock bluff. This is an extremely private setting amongst old growth fir trees and an abundance of arbutus, yet provides stunning panoramic views. The 1900sqft custom-built home is very well constructed. The design includes an appealing bright and open living concept, over height and vaulted ceilings in the main living areas, crown moldings, skylights and lots of windows which provide an abundance of natural light. The open plan on the main level incorporates a generous-sized kitchen with an island and propane range, a formal dining area and the living room with direct access to an extensive wrap-around deck. The master bedroom is also located on the main level and features a 4 piece ensuite. There is an additional 2 piece powder room on the main level. The second level of the home also has an open concept over most of the floor with one separate bedroom and full bath. There are two balconies on this upper level. The home has an approved septic system and a drilled well. The driveway leads past an extensive garden area with fruit trees, an approx. 14x10ft greenhouse and a garden shed. On the opposite side of the driveway is the shop. This outbuilding is half enclosed with the shop and the other half is covered parking or storage. This building is wired and the shop area has two skylights and is where the primary electrical service panels are. From the shop service is extended to the residence. The service from the road to the shop and house is underground.
