Saltair Seascape

About This Home

Saltair Seascape boasts a stunning ocean view in a relaxed setting on beautiful Vancouver Island. This is a home that has two drive way accesses for easy entry and exit as well as ground level entry to the main living area of the home. Upon entering this home you will notice the jaw dropping view of the Georgia Straits through the open concept area of the living room, dining area, sun deck and kitchen. Large living room windows and glass french doors opening on to the sun deck allow natural light and ocean breezes to flow through the home. The owners of this home are a retired professional couple who continue to study and travel, so features such as an ocean view office, and a large built-in library was a priority for them. On the lower level of this home there is a cozy fireplace and guest area, along with a children’s nook, and space for a grand piano. Custom concrete stairs were built from the lower level of this home curving down to a rustic dock on the beach. This stunning home was built with ICF construction with upgraded windows which has given the house a strikingly quiet interior, completely free of road noise. Saltair Seascapes has been landscaped with whimsical flowing grasses, herbs, and flowers to accentuate the west coast contemporary home design. This is now home-sweet-custom-home for our happy clients.
