A noble stucco manor house and its glorious alpine surroundings capture the time-honoured elegance in the hills of Salt Spring Island... The setting for Wildwoods is as majestic as the 5,949 square foot, 17 room house itself. A veritable private park, the curtilage spans some 70 acres set upon Mt. Maxwell and bordering its centuries-old trees and trails. In the main courtyard, wild daisies and colourful lupines grow freely towards fenced kitchen and cutting gardens, while a formally clipped boxwood border hugs the foundation in true estate fashion. To the east are superb ocean, mountain and distant city views. Surrounding are open meadows, fenced pastures and stately evergreen forests. The residence honours the finery of a French country house while allowing for relaxed modern comfort. Rooms such as the Great Room with its soaring beamed ceilings and walk-in fireplace are complemented by an impressive chateau kitchen, a bright morning room, an elegant formal dining room, a sunny conservatory, 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. The master bedroom offers two walk-in closets, laundry facilities, dual vanities and a deep soaker tub. In addition, there are deep window sills and a rose covered walkout to an open-air terrace. Additionally, guests can enjoy a private wing located above the music studio/media room. The grounds also house a nostalgic magazine-quality post and beam barn, two run-in shelters and a delightful English potting shed. Walking trails and bridle paths are perfect for horse and rider or a day spent running the dogs. A series of ponds are located within the dell and offer summer swimming and a serene natural habitat for the abundant wildlife that also call this magical estate home.
