Denman Island Treasure
Image by Li Read
A dream awaits you! 12 acres of sunny tranquility and privacy, just for you, on serene Denman Island. The property enjoys some forest areas, plus easy care and creative landscaping around the home. South/southwest/west exposures ensure year round/all day sun, and extensive patio areas expand summer living pleasures. Fronting on a marsh, a bird sanctuary, the "lake" here allows for canoeing the bends in the marsh…a very pleasing past-time!
The home is new, and you have time to choose finishes, here! Radiant infloor heat, custom bathroom fixtures (you’ll love the shower and the tub in the master ensuite!), open plan kitchen/dining (top of the line appliances), custom built-in cabinetry for storage, pantry, dramatic living with vaulted ceiling, stairs from the formal entry/foyer to the master "suite", and stairs from the family room to the children’s "wing". A climbing wall feature from the family room, plus a terrific work-out exercise space.
Easy access to the patio areas/barbecue space, from all principal rooms. This home could be featured in Dwell Magazine, and offers that clean-lined simplicity of the best of "west coast contemporary" Zen/Scandanavian influenced design. European windows, doors, everything chosen of very fine quality. The final finishing choices can be yours!
The plus? There is an amazing "shop" on the property, separately sited from the home. It holds a state of the art fully computerized woodworking business, at the moment. If desired, a buyer could offer on the equipment as well. The owner is a custom cabinet designer/creator, and his work is found in the very best homes on the Lower Mainland/in Whistler. He is able to work from home, on Denman. This space has to be seen to be appreciated…the word "shop" does not describe it, at all.
Another plus? A short stroll brings you to a terrific walk-on beach, warm ocean swimming, and you’re just minutes by car to the Hornby Island ferry or to the ferry from Denman Island back to Buckley Bay, on Vancouver Island. It’s only a ten minute ferry trip! Close to skiing at Mt. Washington, to shopping and all services in Courtenay/Comox, and a short drive to Qualicum Beach and to Nanaimo, too Very nicely located, with the allure of that Gulf Islands "safe haven" aspect to investment. The Islands Trust has capped growth on all of the Gulf Islands, and they are basically "preserved" for the benefit of all B.C. residents. (Ask me about this aspect of investment on a Gulf Island).
This is a magical property, with a new home that allows you to choose some final finishing features, and is "state of the art" in design and choices.
Don’t miss this beauty!
St Francis Clergy House (The Vicarage), St Francis of Assisi Church, 480 Charminster Road, Charminster, Bournemouth, Dorset
Image by Alwyn Ladell
St Francis Clergy House is in the Arts and Crafts style, of two storeys to the front (west), and two storeys plus a basement to the rear. The two left-hand bays were originally the curates’ house (now offices, 2013), and the rest of the building which breaks forwards is the former vicarage. The windows throughout are timber casements with leaded lights. The west front of the vicarage is symmetrical with a central entrance flanked by small arch-headed windows, all set within an applied, round-headed arcade surround of stucco with attached columns to either side of the door. The entrance is in turn flanked by a flat-headed single window and a three-light window. To the first floor are three-light windows to the outer bays and a central window of four lights above the entrance. The curates’ house to the left has an entrance with stone surround to the left bay and a three-light window to the right. To the first floor are two matching windows. The south and east elevations are plainer, and have timber casements, some with stucco architrave. The curates’ house which has access through to the vestry and sacristy, as well as the church, has a single room to the ground floor and two former bedrooms and a bathroom at first floor. Fittings include mid-C20 timber doors, picture rails, skirting boards and two safes.
