Metchosin’s Iconic Canadian Architectural Monument Goes on Sale Through Sotheby’s International Realty

Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, a short 20-minute drive from downtown Victoria, the residents of Metchosin take pride in the magnificent mountain views and massive old growth trees. Regarded a semi-rural community of rolling countryside laced with winding rural roads traversing cultivated acreages, rocky highlands, and forests along the shores of the Juan de Fuca Strait, the District of Metchosin is not only home to many migratory birds, land and sea life, but also the iconic Canadian architectural monument on 529 Swanwick Road.

Perched upon a sprawling 67-acre oceanfront parcel, the Metchosin residence is punctuated by grand contemporary lines, and sustainably entwined with its natural surroundings. Situated in the heart of one of Canada’s most endangered natural ecosystems—the Garry Oak savannah, this 10,700 square foot property is cantilevered atop a concrete armature, and rooted clear of the critical tree root zones. With floors branching astride a canyon carrying spent hydrothermal seawater framed by etched glass exterior walls, this innovative retreat effortlessly blurs the boundaries of nature and shelter.

Boasting panoramic views of over 1,400 linear feet of shoreline and a private beach backed by the rugged Olympic Mountain range, the Metchosin residence is dynamically lit by strategically placed exterior-and-foot windows which reflect the ocean and canyon river across its hardwood floors and travertine walls. Complemented by an integrated boast house, which mechanical launches directly unto the sea, this gated residence offers worldwide access to home automation controls, a caretakers residence, a garage with hydraulic lift, and a private tennis/basketball court.

Currently for sale on the Sotheby’s International Realty website, the six bedroom and 7 bathroom, Metchosin residence is worth approximately USD $ 11,049,291 and CAD $ 14 100 000.
