Superlative opportunity! In the heart of the Fulford Valley/Burgoyne Valley, with excellent sun exposures and dramatic valley, mountain, and ocean viewscapes...a short stroll to beach and to miles of riding and walking/hiking trails...this land is superb.
The gift? This ten acres is the home of renowned Garry Oak Vineyard...award-winning wines, often showcased at Hastings House and other luxury venues, and featured in fine dining establishments in Vancouver & in Victoria. The French concept of "terroir" is alive & well at this vineyard...their wine is made from the grapes from their land.
The home is a custom architect designed gem (Osborne & Clark, from Vancouver...famed for their country ethic)...you will be immediately eased into the Salt Spring lifestyle as you enjoy this stellar property.
The Fulford Valley/Burgoyne Valley are at the same latitude as the Loire Valley in France. The micro-climate enjoyed by Salt Spring Island is known as "cool Mediterranean".
Salt Spring features as an artistic haven, with painters, writers, musicians, fabric artists, potters, sculptors, actors, dancers all calling this Island beauty "home". The slow food movement is also alive and well on amazing Salt Spring Island: a sustainable farm ethic is a part of the Island culture. Farmers markets are an almost year round feature of our temperate climate zone.
The Island also offers all services/amenities required in our 21st Century lives, and yet also enjoys that wonderful sense of being "apart". Close to major centres (Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle), and with a year round lifestyle...easy to do daytrips to other regions, and yet not necessary to leave the Island unless one wishes to. Hospital, three elementary schools, a middle and a state of the art senior school, seniors activities, a growing digital network of the tech culture, the voice of the artist well represented, a sense of sanctuary without being isolated...it is a premier location for either a seasonal or a year round experience.
The Garry Oak Vineyard acreage offers an alluring retirement opportunity...be the hands on person you've always dreamed of being, or retain the qualified helpers in the vineyard. Charming cottage home for these accomplished helpers...plus auxiliary buildings dedicated to the wine-making.
Always dreamed of France or Italy? Here's the delectable reality to that dream...the stability and the innovative and the creative Canadian lifestyle awaits your pleasure on very special Salt Spring Island!
Here is your dramatic and warm hued home, with exceptional views to rest the soul...here is the detached garage for your classic cars...here is the privacy and the calm that enfolds one...here is the interest to pique one's mind, to open a door to a creative experience...call me, and let's view this gem together, very soon.
Please, do not disturb owners or vineyard staff...appointments to view are essential. 24 hour notice requested.
Here is your future....
