This property is exempt from Foreign Buyer Ban. Offering a perfect blend of civilization and nature, Spectacle Island is minutes from the mainland and showcases close to ten acres of private oasis. Over four hundred feet of sandy beach stretches along the western shore, setting the stage for ultimate sunsets. The incredibly rare landscape features a rich thicket of rose hip bushes rising behind the beach, and the two healthy tree-covered shady sheltered forest ends (55 and 75 feet above sea level) forming the lenses of this pair of giant spectacles. As if the deck was dropped from the sky, the 60 x 60 platform serves as a raised surface to hold four structures, each with their own purpose. The concept was threefold; delineation from the precious natural environment, a structural deck anchor (36 beefy wood pilons, driven 12 feet into the ground) leaving enough space for a storm surge to pass underneath, and orientation providing island and sea views out windows from any side. The cluster of “fish store” style cabins finished in primary colours (red, blue and yellow) has turned into a destination beacon for sailors as well. Eight years ago, the cabins were completed with the main building “The Saloon” offering a fully equipped kitchen, large dining area for entertaining, living room with fireplace and a sleeping area. Two additional sleeping cabins, “Bunk House” and “Square House”, both with fireplaces and a storage/amenity cabin has a washroom, outdoor shower, washer and dryer complete the property. There is just under 1400 square feet of living space in total. Many attributes make this property a truly rare offering; the most magnificent sunrises and sunsets, sea air breezes so no chance of bugs, geographically, the island sits out of the foggy part of the bay, and due to shallow and protected waters on the western shore, the water temperature in the summer can reach a comfy 72 degrees Fahrenheit and the air can get into the high eighties on a sunny day.
