THE ULTIMATE BEACH HOUSE

THE HOUSE

Originally built in the 1970’s, this timeless arched A-frame cabin was stripped down to the shell and trusses, then completely renovated in a modern, minimalist style. On the lower level is the stunning master suite. Sliding windows open up to the beach a few feet below and the sounds of the waves lapping against the shore lull you to sleep. It almost feels like you are living on a boat. Concrete floors keep your toes warm with radiant heat while you skip to your ensuite with a shower built for 2 and an unstoppable view. Enjoy lazy mornings in bed with a large cup of coffee and panoramic vistas of Tricomali channel with Hall Island and the Secretary Islands across the channel with mountains of Vancouver Island beyond. On the main level is an open-plan living room with wood stove to the left of the floor to ceiling sliding windows which open up to a wrap around deck with sectional lounger. Then kitchen overlooks the living room, dining room and beach below. There is also a bathroom with deep soaker tub and guest room / laundry room just off the main entrance. Floating fir stairs lead you to the a loft bedroom with epic sunset views.

THE BEACH

A concrete staircase leads you to your private sandstone beach with 254 feet of waterfront. Plenty of room to bring in your dingy from the mooring buoy, launch kayaks or paddle boards, enjoy a beach bonfire or soak up the incredible views from your tree swing. A perfect place an evening swim, smores and summer time camp stories. With only 4 residences on Saltery Bay, and the neighbours quite far away, privacy is all yours!

GETTING HERE

Galiano is the first stop on the ferry from Tsawwassen, taking less than an hour for arrival or a short 65 kilometers by private boat from downtown Vancouver. Moor your boat just outside your beach house or invite friends to visit via boat. The property is a 20 minute drive from the ferry terminal privately located about 20 minutes from most shops and restaurants.

Come for the peace, solitude and beauty.
