Seeking a private and sunny property, "far from the madding crowd"? Here it is, on special Salt Spring Island.

Close to Ganges Village and to all services/amenities (walk to town, if desired, it's only 2 km), and yet in its own serene space ... a lovely sense of forest surrounds this property, and you can walk your own trails. A seasonal creek is there to be enjoyed, too.

Approximately 3.63 acres in size, the property is just now experiencing landscaping (after the home construction project). The home has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, and is approximately 4,475 sq. ft. This does not include the attached heated triple garage/workshop or workout area with picture windows, and which is an additional 750 sq. ft.

A very stylish log home plan, which incorporates half logs on the exterior to perfectly fit the surroundings, with a dry-wall interior thoughtfully decorated, has been nestled into this parcel of inviting land. A welcoming entry/foyer brings one into the inviting reading and garden room, a spacious light-filled solarium with 8 extra large skylights and 4 plate glass windows that provide that sunny, airy welcome feeling.

French doors lead to a dramatic living room with a feature stone fireplace rising 30 feet in the vaulted ceiling that can also be accessed by French doors on either side of the fireplace. The 11 ft. wide fireplace has a large 4.5 ft. firebox outfitted for dual gas and/or log burning.

The living room is part of an open plan of 1,200 sq. ft. that includes a cook's dream kitchen with a Thermador 6 burner gas stove, dual ovens and an expansive dining area.

Additional luxury features include 6" wide hardwood floors throughout; a built in speaker system; a Renai hot water system that supplies endless hot water on demand; 'in-floor' heating system for cozy winters; and extraordinarily designed and luxury finished bathrooms with artisan created tile work throughout.

There is a useful mudroom/laundry room with a dutch-door entrance. Completing the living spaces on this main level, and accessed through smoked glass French doors, is a 40' long master bedroom/sitting area, with a gas fireplace separating the private office, and a large ensuite bathroom and walk in closet. . A guest powder room is also on the main level.

A storey and a half design allows for four bedrooms/three bath on the upper level and a gallery space that has been created as a media room with 7 luxury reclining sofa chairs, and a built in 72" television.

This dramatic and custom designed home, with superb finishing decisions, and with many unique items during construction and a "green" emphasis, will appeal to a large family ... or to a professional couple working from home ... or to a luxury B&B opportunity.

Don't overlook this gem ... an interior visit is breathtakingly beautiful.
