metchosin house - reflecting pool

write-up from the realtors :

a contemporary and architecturally award winning design by marko simcic this home blends with over 1400 feet of rugged coastline spanning across 68 acres just outside of victoria, british columbia. exclusive luxury, this is truly one of the finest waterfront estates on the west coast. canyon river runs through the home and masterfully controls the temperature via hydrothermal radiant energy giving the home environmental consciousness through this impressively progressive technology. a radical and forward approach, the home’s mechanical and electrical systems can be accessed from anywhere on the globe via the Internet. this modern 6 bedroom home gracefully coexists with the surrounding natural west coast landscape and maintains an intimate and easily communicable presence on the interior despite the infinite size of the space. 10,700 square feet is wonderfully fluid and provides ease of daily functionality, while housing every luxury, with formal entertaining space, and separate guest accommodations. vaulted ceiling, skylights, intricate bridges, terraces, decks and an impressively sized car port all add to this home’s grandiose allure. tennis courts, hot tub, and pool add to this active retreat; an enclosed boathouse within the home allows you to roll out of bed and into the ocean! this award winning quiet and private waterfront metchosin home is the epitome of excellence; having achieved the canadian architect award in 2003 and a lieutenant-governor’s award in 2008. while seemingly a hidden sanctuary, the home is only 30 minutes outside of the capital city; allowing you to stay connected to amenities, shops, and air travel or enjoy the quiet seclusion.
