If you're familiar with British Columbia, then the raw beauty and natural wilderness of Vancouver Island is well and truly on your radar.

Sitting just outside of B.C.'s capital of Victoria, this 67-acre oceanfront parcel at the southern end of Vancouver Island has to be one of the most impressive and sprawling estates in the province. And as of right now - it's for sale.

The Metchosin House, an award-winning home designed by architect Marko Simcic is on the market to prospective buyers seeking modern luxury in a remote location.

“Sustainably entwined” with its locale in the heart of one of Canada’s most endangered natural ecosystems - the Garry Oak savannah - the house sources its power from the hydrothermal seawater of the central canyon river surrounding the property.

Across the 10,700-square-foot interior are six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, with the sharp structural fold also enclosing an exterior pool and hot tub area which separates the master and guest quarters.

Elsewhere on the property, 426 metres of shorefront and private beach skirt the coastline, while an integrated boathouse with a mechanical launch is available for those looking to set sail directly from home.

This incredible residence is priced at CAD$12,888,000 and is listed on Sotheby's International Realty Canada. See more at sothebysrealty.ca.
