6950 Wright Rd, Sooke, Near Victoria, British Columbia, V9Z 1M5, Canada
Have you dreamed of living on the waterfront, only to be frustrated by the escalating prices for run-down, tiny homes in Victoria? Just 40 km from downtown Victoria is Sooke - a welcoming seaside community of 12,000. With the best-priced waterfront on southern Vancouver Island, it's no surprise that the world is discovering this pristine area. In the prestigious Whiffin Spit neighbourhood, at the end of a quiet country lane is 6950 Wright Road. The owner of this home spared no expense in transforming the drab 70's rancher to a sparkling, stunning 3100 sqft home with all high-end finishes. From the brand new deck, driveway, paint, and roof on the outside, to the solid oak floors inside, nothing has been left untouched. The house sits at the rear of the level acre, leaving plenty of outdoor space to enjoy, and nearly 100 ft of low-bank waterfront on to the Sooke Harbour. Enter in the door into the grand foyer with ceramic 'wood-plank' tiles, solid wood trim and doors. The foyer opens up into the grand sunken living room, which flows effortlessly into the dining room, kitchen, and breakfast nook, in one large open space, finished in very high end dark-stained textured solid oak floors. The brand-new high efficiency windows let in lots of light, and allow you to enjoy the view from the places you'll be spending the most time. Beautiful French doors open on to the huge brand-new deck, ready to entertain next summer. Back inside, you will simply fall in love with the kitchen; its highlight is clearly the locally-sourced and crafted solid maple butcher-block counters and island. With gorgeous high-end soft-close cabinetry, stylish black-stainless steel appliances, a sunken composite sink, pot-filler tap on the stove, and classic white subway tile backsplash, this is a chef's dream and the perfect kitchen to entertain your guests around this Christmas. Imagine the crackling fire in the corner fireplace while you enjoy the harbour lights on a a cold winter's night. Each bedroom in this stunning residence has its own luxurious ensuite, with a custom-designed and built tile shower, granite counters and high-end fixtures. Two of the bedrooms open on to the deck, and all have ample closet space including 2 with walk-in closets. Fancy a soak? The ultra-deep soaker tub in the main bath has you covered, and the dual 75 gallon hot water tanks with recirculating pump will ensure you never run out of hot water! The family room and main bath can be separated from the main house with a sliding solid wood barn-style door - an ideal retreat or home-based business location, or install a Murphy bed and you have an ideal guest suite or vacation rental! Outside, enjoy the 52x20' pressure-treated deck, 90 cedar hedges planted for privacy (growing fast already!), a gorgeous weeping willow tree, and of course your very own beach. There's a single garage attached to the house, and a massive 39x28' shop/garage at the front of the property. An ideal spot to work on or store classic cars, create, work, or finish for additional accommodation. On top of the steel roof is a 7.32kW grid-tied solar array (feeds to the Hydro grid when household demand is low) - all ready for further expansion to live even more off the grid. Walk to your boat at the nearby Sooke Harbour Marina, or stroll down to the Prestige Oceanfront Resort for dinner, cocktails or a workout (memberships available). World-famous Sooke Harbour House is just a short walk, as is Whiffin Spit, a popular oceanside trail. This amazing property must be seen to be believed. Get in touch today for your personal tour!
