House/Single Family For Sale in Bowen Island, Bowen Island

  • 3 Beds

  • 3,061 Sq. Ft.

One of the most stunning settings on Bowen Island is on the Northwest side, where landscapes of nearby islands create picture-perfect Pacific Northwest vignettes. It also happens to be the best place on Bowen to see the Northern Lights.

This special property is on the market for the very first time after being held in the family since 1949. The original cabin was lifted and added onto significantly in 1987 with a full concrete perimeter foundation, creating a home that is just over 3000 sf including a 1300 sf unfinished basement with 9’ ceilings and separate entry.

Opening the front door you immediately feel the sense of history, and can imagine joyful gatherings of friends and families over the years. Sitting on 3.3 acres, divided by Mount Gardner Road, just under ½ acre is on the water side of the road. The remainder of the property is treed and sloped with a couple of flat benches where you might be able to build a 2nd home. If you’re a gardener, you’ll enjoy the good-sized south-facing permaculture garden. Much of the property is fenced so you can nurture your garden and be content that it will be safe from the deer.

The house sits closer to the water than any of the neighbouring homes, and when you’re on the front deck (that runs the full length of the house) there are uninterrupted, and ever-changing views from Keats Island and the Sunshine Coast, to nearby Hutt Island and Gambier Island, and north up Howe Sound.

Living on the water here is a nature lover’s dream come true. Whether it’s pulling out the binoculars hoping for a glimpse of frequently sited Orcas, or jumping on your paddleboard and checking out the sea life in the intertidal zone, or simply going for a moonlight swim, you’ll be in awe with the wonder that surrounds you in beautiful Galbraith Bay.
