Waterfront Stephenson Point Estate! This natural and very private estate found at 3550 Stephenson Point and 3560 Planta Road is a rare offering with incredible potential for its future owners. Enjoy views of the rocky beach and The Spit, a regional park within an easy walk, row or swim to its narrow neck of land with sculptured rocks and Gary Oaks. Observe the seals and otters as they play in the ocean and count the fishing boats, sail boats and ferries that come in just south of the property from the cedar bench on the water’s edge. Explore the pathways on the professionally landscaped property and watch as deer and other wildlife wander into the yard while owls, woodpeckers and even eagles tower high above in the trees. The estate is home to two houses and a stone working shop/artist’s studio. One of the homes was built in the early twentieth century (1915) and still maintains the original fir floors and chimneys built of rock and its history.
The beach house is the most recently constructed home and is a work of architectural art. With access from a winding forest path and and across a footbridge this beach house is perfectly positioned to take in the views of the forest on one side and the ocean views on the other. The home utilizes local building materials such as wood and stone from the Island and the lower mainland throughout. The windows are custom made and trimmed with local fir and stones used for the bridge and fireplace were moved from Spider Lake. The kitchen is uniquely shaped like the letter U and has provisions for a dumb-waiter to ease the use of stairs. Provisions for a steam room can be found in the beach house along with patios and a courtyard to soak up the gorgeous ocean views during a BBQ with friends and family or peacefully alone with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. This estate is a beautiful mixture of forest and ocean and is rich in history. Escape with the feeling of seclusion of the city while living within minutes of the heart of Nanaimo and 40 mins to downtown Vancouver. All data & meas. are approx. & should be verified.
