This sprawling Galiano Island estate with a New England-style main home and two guest houses was listed mid-December for $8,580,000. Listing agent: Clarence Debelle
December is a brave time to list a property, especially a massive one over $8 million. But perhaps the agents are banking on buyers visualizing the spectacular holidays their families could have in a place like this.
Listed on December 11, the Blue Raven waterfront estate near the BC Ferries terminal on Galiano Island covers 9.4 acres, with nearly 2,400 feet (0.7km) of shoreline and private beaches on a very pretty inlet.
The main home on the property is a gorgeous New England-style custom-built house with two levels of wraparound terraces, five bedrooms, and 4,819 square feet of interior space. This includes a vast great room with epic ocean views and a gourmet kitchen, a large library/family room, and a huge master suite. There’s also a home office (or a sixth bedroom) in the upper turret.
Also on the property is a two-bedroom-plus-den, 1,400-square-foot guest house – known as the dock house – in a contemporary style with a large great room. There’s also well as a second smaller guest house with one bedroom, in the New England style of the main house.
Want more? There’s a four-hole golf course, and two deep-water docks for your boat(s) or to arrive by private floatplane (12 minutes from YVR) – and if you’re even fancier than that, there’s a helipad. All this, in a private estate with a very elegant gated entrance.
We can only dream about having the kind of family (like the Kennedys, perhaps?) that spends holidays in a place like this. With nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms, it would also make an incredible BnB or corporate retreat venue.
The property was valued in 2017 by B.C. Assessment at a total of $3,791,000 for all four lots combined (2018 assessments will be published first week of January 2019).
