Here is a spectacular pedigree property, for your discovery and enjoyment...at Salt Spring's pristine "south end". The provenance on this beautiful waterfront holding encompasses both the architect (H. Schubart, who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright, and who moved to Salt Spring from San Francisco) and the previous owner (Robert Bateman, Canada's famed wildlife painter). The home was commissioned by Robert Bateman. The current (2nd) owner has inventively and carefully both restored and completely renovated this authentic "west coast" gem. The property offering includes two adjacent waterfront parcels, an estate style opportunity...the main home is on one title and a lovely Schubart designed studio is sited on the adjacent title. Many unique features here, all adding up to the beautiful home that awaits your pleasure. Crushed shell beach in private cove, forest surround, rocky knolls and private trails...sunny exposures (S/SW/W)...panoramic ocean and mountain views...a vista to delight from all windows. The property enjoys a natural terrain, that has been nurtured by the owner. Expansive decking and easy-care landscaping features. Dramatic living, feature stone fireplace, dining with a view, dream kitchen with breakfast area and fireplace, easy access to deck and garden spaces...spacious entry/foyer also allows for access to large studio space (yoga retreat?), which is separate from main lifestyle rooms. Master in its own wing. Guest bedrooms/bath also in own wing. Offices. Excellent storage. Wine room. Pantry/second kitchen area for entertaining. Separate double garage. A nanny or guest/inlaw suite, with separate entrance. Lovely privacy, everywhere. A thoughtful home...perfect for a family or for a professional couple at home. This graceful rendering of the "west coast" design ethic offers everything desired for a happy 21st Century lifestyle. The best of Salt Spring? Let's view. 48 hr notice for all viewings. Thank you.
