Queen Mary Bay
he Queen Mary Bay property is one of the finest and most spectacular residential properties on the Pacific West Coast.
Welcome to a secluded forested estate on one of Canada's most picturesque coastlines. Known as Queen Mary Bay, this 24.57 acre (9.94 ha)waterfront estate is a short drive from the city of Victoria on the southern end of Vancouver Island in the beautiful province of British Columbia.
Queen Mary Bay's unique location on the shores of the Pacific Ocean offers rare privacy within close reach of central highways, the Victoria International Airport and the B.C. Ferry Terminal, which provides access to Vancouver on the mainland and the surrounding Gulf Islands. Also easily reached are the San Juan Islands via the Washington State Ferries which leave from their terminal only 5 miles (8 km) from Queen Mary Bay in the town of Sidney.
The climate is mild all year round in our community, which is fast becoming a popular destination for professionals, retirees and those seeking a change in lifestyle.
The main house and caretaker's cottage sit just above 1,500 feet (450m) of pristine shoreline equipped with private boat and seaplane moorage.
Off the coast are small Gulf Islands and charming inlets that are easily explored by sailboat or yacht.
The property's forest, trails and gardens are filled with lush vegetation and wildlife.
Queen Mary Bay has a stunning natural beauty. Living surrounded by the ocean and the calm of the forest instills a profound sense of inner tranquility.
One of the two largest waterfront properties in the area, Queen Mary Bay is an estate with unsurpassed privacy and extraordinary, pristine beauty. A large portion of the property comprises a forest of first-growth cedars and second-growth Douglas firs. An expansive 1.5 acre (0.61 ha) field connects the main house, the caretaker's cottage, the beach and the ravine, offering a secluded area for any activity.
The main house has been carefully designed for a couple to provide serenity and comfort along with breathtaking views of the forest, the beaches, the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf Islands while Mount Baker's glaciers tower over the horizon to the east. The estate's private dock allows for direct access by sailboat or yacht to the same charming islands, the surrounding picturesque inlets, and miles of local coastline.
Queen Mary Bay is a half-hour drive from the provincial capital of Victoria and a ninety-minute car ferry journey either to the larger mainland city of Vancouver or to Seattle in the State of Washington – close to all imaginable services and facilities on the Pacific's northwest coast.
The property has great potential for a private estate, corporate retreat or an exclusive subdivision. It also holds promise for the creation of a private salmon spawning pond in the creek running through its protected ravine. While the estate is connected to the municipal water supply, it also has its own fresh water wells.
