High atop Cates Hill and close to everything, this impeccably maintained and well-loved property is a standout in one of Bowen Island’s most desirable neighbourhoods. From the moment you arrive, the first view of the mountains reminds you of where you live and how lucky you are to be here.
Approaching the front entrance, you are struck by the stunning custom front door, crafted from fir and maple by local artisan Burns Jennings, whose inspiration came from wandering off the beaten path in Barcelona. The feeling of an oasis continues throughout the home, with light and views to rival any Mediterranean vista. Family time and entertaining are a pleasure with the open concept floor plan that flows out to the 700 sf deck to take in those iconic West Coast views. When winter comes, the snow-capped mountains take your breath away. At nighttime, gaze at the twinkling lights of Cypress Mountain as you stay cozy inside - the energy-efficient propane fireplace is just one example of the craftsmanship and detail that have been put into this showpiece home.
In the summer, many hours will be spent outside enjoying the sprawling lawns and terraced rock gardens, layered with specimen trees, shrubs, and grasses. A multitude of wildflowers on the south side of the property attracts an abundance of birds, butterflies, and bees in early summer.
As autumn approaches, and it’s time for the kids head back to school, they’ll find getting there a breeze. Easy access to a nature trail leads directly to the Bowen Island Community School. Imagine living in a place where children can walk to school.
935 Rivendell is a perfect combination of quality, design, and loving care that make it move-in ready to enjoy the Bowen lifestyle: a connection to community and nature that is simply priceless.
