Vancouver Island is a breathtakingly beautiful place to call home. Campbell River, nestled right along the East Coast of Vancouver Island, is no exception to this. Offering the balanced lifestyle everyone is in search of in the rat race of the 21st century. It’s a place where you can take a step back and breathe in the endless possibilities it has to offer you. Imagine yourself enjoying a paddle in your kayak out on the ocean as an eagle gracefully soars above you. You catch the laughter from the shoreline as families gather, skipping rocks into the ocean and searching for crabs. You begin to paddle back towards shore, getting lost in the views of the majestic mountain backdrop. It brings a smile to your face as the snap shot of the weekend past comes to mind. The wonder in the kids’ eyes as you explored the vast wilderness right out your back door. Where the trees were so tall they looked like they were touching the sky, and the forest so thick you couldn’t resist playing hide and seek.
So what could be better than living in Paradise? How about having your own piece of home right in the heart of it all? Nestled with all of this at your fingertips is a 2.5 acre gorgeous Estate waiting for you to make the dream happen.
As you head into one of your character barns to put away the kayak, you catch the excitement of your kids racing each other down to the zip line spanning across the backyard. It’s a sunny spring day and as you head down to check on the kids, you take a moment to walk by the tranquil garden, noticing how much peace the trickling rock waterfall brings you. After soaking in the morning rays you head inside filled with excitement for the day. You begin preparing for an afternoon filled with family and friends as you head into your perfect entertainment chefs kitchen with stunning French Country style cabinetry. As you begin placing out the feast on the large granite island the first of your guests begin arrive in through the timber framed entry. With the open concept living, the 20’ vaulted ceilings, and picturesque windows, everyone gathers around catching each other up on their latest island adventures.
People begin wandering out onto your expansive deck overlooking the property watching as the kids chase one another amongst the goats and chickens out in the fenced pastures. You spend the next few hours listening to the laughter and chatter that fills the air as the afternoon turns to evening without you realizing how much time has passed. As the kids all settle into your movie theatre room, you enter the wine cellar to select a vino of choice before heading back out to enjoy crisp night air. Following the sound of the soothing guitar, you join around the crackling fire. You settle in, feeling the warmth of it against your cheeks. Looking around at the smiles of your loved ones, you can’t imagine being anywhere else. It’s a magical place where a million more special memories are awaiting to be made.
As the night draws to an end everyone begins to trickle to their bedrooms and your out of town family heads to your detached carriage home. Before turning in for the night you take a look around, evidence of a perfect day scattered around. With a click of a button on the home automation system, everything on the main level turns out for the night. Retreating into your master oasis, you can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
