    The setting at Ocean Enclave between the sculptured gardens and the sparkling sea, transmits a sense of peace that washes over all who are fortunate enough to arrive. This low bank ocean front property encompasses 6.8 acres and captivates at every glance. This exquisite custom built home was commissioned in 1996 and is a masterful work of West Coast Architecture that incorporates natural building materials throughout. Set in picturesque Central Saanich, this gated property is entirely private and surrounded by a mature forest of fir, arbutus and cedar trees. The drive winds through the forest and ends with the luxury of a circular driveway and fountain. For added security the entire property is fenced and secured by cameras at the gate, dock, and other areas. The main estate encompasses two luxurious levels, with floor to ceiling windows that frame the sweeping water views, providing a dynamic backdrop that is sure to please year round. The grand foyer displays the designer interior, which is simply captivating. The gourmet kitchen is stylishly appointed with top of the line appliances, granite counters, quality cabinetry with bar seating and an eating area for casual meals. The dining room offers a refined setting for hosting and easily accommodates large gatherings. The living room is enhanced with vaulted ceilings, a statement fireplace and a cozy balcony. The enviable primary suite offers a regal setting with a fireplace, walk-in closet and spa-like six piece ensuite. An inviting family room, an office, laundry and two bathrooms completes the main level. The walk-out lower provides a spacious rec room, flex area, media room, storage and three bedrooms – each with an ensuite. Welcome guests with a detached guest carriage house, complete with two bedrooms, a kitchen, dining and living areas, laundry, a four piece bath and a private balcony. The expansive property offers resort style living year round, with a wide range of activities to enjoy. There are ample outdoor living spaces, with multiple patios, balconies and decks to take advantage of. Each area offers a different vantage point for taking in the enchanting scenery and spectacular sunsets. Get glimpses of resident wildlife including seals, whales, eagles, otters and more from the oceanfront patio, or soak your feet in the ocean from your private dock. Explore the surrounding shoreline from your kayak or paddle board, search the tidal pools, enjoy a beach fire under the stars, sunbathe on the dock, take a dip off the waterslide, or launch your yacht and catch dinner from the bountiful waters. Search the meandering trails with generous granite stone walls and stairways throughout the property. Storm watch in the rainy season comforted knowing both homes are equipped with a backup generator system. Access to the property can be from your winding driveway, your marine vessel on the water or via your private helicopter pad – visible from the home. This one of a kind property is only minutes away from the local communities of Brentwood Bay, Saanichton and Sidney by the Sea. Victoria, the capital city of beautiful British Columbia and the cultural and historical centre of the province, is a 30 minute drive away. Travel with ease with the Victoria International Airport and BC Ferries only moments away.
