Winter Harbour, 176 Winter Harbour Road
Winter Harbour’s newest oceanfront residence! 180 feet of waterfront, spectacular new construction home, and salmon, halibut and lingcod fishing on the Pacific west coast out your front door. Over $1 million dollars spent in building cost over the past 18 months, but the owner’s plans have changed.
The home is situated on one of three individual titles. The two additional waterfront building lots, one on each side of the home, have been cleared and prepped for future development and are included in the sale for privacy or to sell/hold for future investment.
Winter Harbour is located just up from the entrance to Quatsino Sound on the north-west end of Vancouver Island. It offers a protected harbour, with access by forest service road from Highway 19. This is a destination that is renowned for quick, easy access to some of the best fishing and exploring the west coast of Vancouver Island has to offer.
This attractive, brand new home has never been lived in. It provides 1664sqft of modern comfortable living space with the finishing touches just being completed. The styling is contemporary modern with main level entry and walkout basement. Floor to ceiling windows capture the tranquil ocean views of Winter Harbour and the local marine activity.
The main level has a very spacious primary living area which incorporates the living room, dining room and kitchen. This is a great room with floor to ceiling windows, a high vaulted ceiling and a freestanding Pacific energy wood-burning airtight fireplace. The kitchen features a central island with bar-style seating on one side. There is access from the living area to a massive full width oceanside deck with cedar posts and stainless wire strands providing minimal effect on the view.
The spacious master bedroom has a walk-in closet plus a three-piece bathroom. It also has access to the oceanside deck. Downstairs are two more bedrooms and another three-piece bathroom. There is also a mud room/storage/fish processing room which is plumbed with cabinetry and a sink set up for fish processing and storage as well as two oversize stand-up freezers, and a laundry room which encompasses the mechanical systems area. All the ground level rooms have large glass sliding doors to capture the view and provide walkout access to the oceanfront and a covered deck area.
The home has an insulated concrete foundation and the exterior is finished with a composite plank board and baton style siding and a seamless metal roof with cedar accent features.
The home is a professional build and covered by new home warranty. The best of trades and equipment have been used and the services and construction are all to code and of the highest standards, making this the premier residence in Winter Harbour.
A lot of groundwork has been completed, included clearing all lots and preparing the center lot for building, and bringing in loads of engineered material to construct driveway access to the upper and lower portion of the residence. The property has easy access onto the historic Winter Harbour Boardwalk and is only a few minutes’ walk away from the Government Dock, post office and general store.
Private dock permit in final phase of approval with Crown. Government Dock public moorage facilities are also available steps away from the property.
Services include community domestic water, new BC Hydro electrical service and a newly installed septic system. Heating is via a forced air electric furnace. The home comes with a complement of stainless steel appliances.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a new, carefree vacation or full-time residence with two adjacent lots which can be kept for the additional space or sold separately. It would also be ideal for a number of friends to share as a fishing destination accommodation. The price reflects excellent value!
