Villa Madrona – SOLD
660 Lands End Road, North Saanich, British Columbia, Canada, V8L 5K9
Set in a secluded property with over 400 feet of spectacular waterfront property on Beautiful British Columbia’s scenic and desirable Vancouver Island. This stunning property is located on the west side of Saanich Peninsula in the Municipality of North Saanich on southern Vancouver Island in the heart of the Gulf Islands and prime boating waters. Villa Madrona is approached through large secure iron gates and circular driveway with a lavish fountain at the entrance to the residence. The estate aptly named “Villa Madrona” stands as a proud monument to the abundance of Madrona trees (aka Arbutus) on the luxuriant secluded grounds.
Villa Madrona is an enclave of elegance set amidst the splendour of the Pacific Ocean. Nestled among two acres (0.81 hectares) of exotic foliage and mature trees, this grand estate is comprised of a rare configuration of four waterfront lots joined together to create this unique and exquisite retreat. The sweeping grounds accommodate an 11,000 square foot principal residence having four bedrooms (all en-suite baths) and ten bathrooms. The residence consists of the East Wing (living accommodation-four bedrooms, six bathrooms, family room, large kitchen, separate dining room) and the West Wing (formal living room, office, library plus swimming pool/conservatory, exercise room, changing and bathrooms and a theatre).
Built over a three-year period, this impressive and dramatic home has been lovingly appointed with detail and an eye for the unique. Special treasures discovered around the world and at the hands of local artisans combine to blend artefacts of museum calibre in a design favouring Robert Stern, with elliptical windows and colonial pillars placed artfully amid the natural beauty of wood and stone. Corner niches from the original Vanderbilt Estate in New York adorn the entrance loggia and West Wing, Honey colour Sugar Pine ceilings complement the Great Room and ceiling treatments throughout the remainder of the home feature frescoes on canvas by local artist Peter Gorman. Hardwood floors of lace wood, cherry, maple, mahogany and exotic pine are accentuated by marble and granite from the finest quarries in the world.
The guest amenities include a private guesthouse of 3,174 square feet originally hand-built in the 1940’s by a local fisherman with a passion for the sea. It has been expensively updated and enhanced to a high standard. The two level guest house is designed to be duplexed if so desired. It has its own hot tub, gazebo, patio and decks. Above the guest house double garage there is a self-contained suite of 287 square feet. The main residence garage has garaging for six vehicles plus a large adjoining workshop with small office area. There is a large working greenhouse and garden equipment building away from the main residence with its own entrance. This is a separate legal lot which could be sold off or could be excluded in a sale if so desired.
