Through the custom wrought iron gate, a large paver driveway leads the way to this exquisite country estate set on 43 acres in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The property boasts breathtaking panoramic views of the natural Fiord of Finlayson Arm and the Saanich Inlet and includes an infinity-edge pool, terrace with a fire pit, guest suite and a spacious garage that car enthusiasts can only dream of, just to name a few.
Spectacular vistas of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada stretch beyond the infinity-edge pool and spa, creating a private retreat in the backyard. A luxury outdoor kitchen with stainless steel appliances is conveniently located next to the pool to entertain guests in the great outdoors.
Even the home office produces an air of elegance with intricately carved furnishings, a coffered ceiling and a candelabra chandelier. Built-in wood bookshelves blend in with the fireplace surround and desk for a cohesive look.
The open-concept living area provides quick access to the gourmet kitchen area, as well as sliding glass doors that open into the picturesque backyard. Just off of the living room is a separate game room and bar, as well as a media room and wine cellar.
Imagine growing fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables right in the backyard. Rows of long wooden planters offer ample space to cook from the garden, and located right next to it, a three stall barn includes a recreation room and home office.
A round outdoor daybed with a canopy offers a spot for intimate conversation or ultra-comfy lounging on the terrace. A large tree trunk sculpture is nestled in the corner, creating an intriguing focal point.

The bar area, separated from the kitchen by the dining area, provides a chic spot to sip cocktails or casually dine. Glass panels lining the wall mimic the large glass panel underfoot, giving the space a sense of cohesion.
