Finisterre Island

Finisterre Island – meaning “the end of the earth” is truly a world apart.  Nestled at the north end of Bowen Island, attached at low tide by a beautiful pebble beach, the custom home here is accessed by a unique 150 foot long tunnel.  Imagine coming home to your private island paradise via tunnel every day! This magical island home was built with knowledge of the natural elements such as wind, tides, and currents, and attention to the environment, with minimal cutting of trees, wind and solar power with generator backup, a roof top rainwater collection system, and of course the tunnel, so as not to scar the landscape of the island. The house itself is tucked in behind Arbutus and fir trees, protected from the Squamish winds with spectacular views of the mountains, Cates Bay, and Hood Point.  The main floor of 1800 square feet has a lovely master bedroom with ensuite, which opens out to its own deck.  The kitchen is presided over by a traditional propane Aga stove, an extra source of heat and comfort in the cooler season, spare bedroom and bathroom are at the opposite end of the house from the master. The extensive use of glass and large timber frame beams makes the house feel part of the natural surroundings.  A separate guest cottage is just one great location to watch the sun go down, and was built for visiting grandkids. Stroll out to the lighthouse and look for orcas, seals, or dolphins, all regular visitors around the island. More details upon request, viewings by appointment only with minimum 24 hours notice.
