Exquisite Schubart design

A rare home close to town one level living with views of the harbour.  Designed by Hank Shubart in 1974 to be a comfortable home to retire in is a testament to timeless architecture at it’s best.  Featured on page 70-71 of the book “Houses Made of Wood and Light” by Michele Dunkerley. The home was designed for Nancy Keith-Murray so she could live comfortably as she aged the main living area on the same floor as the bedroom and bathroom which is perfect for someone who wants to retire on Salt Spring.  The current owners have restored the home to it former glory with a new roof, rebuilt decks, and a new septic system.  All one has to do is move in and enjoy the home which features a unique rooftop deck that is meant to be enjoyed all summer long.

From the seller;
Designed to blend into its tree-sloped environment, this 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home invites you relax. 7 skylights and an abundance of large windows fills this home with natural light. The cozy wood burning fireplace can heat the entire main floor. Electric baseboard heat controlled by individual thermostats in each room efficiently heats the home. Walking out onto any of the three decks expands this homes living space and entertainment opportunities.

The large studio / bedroom on the lower level has its own electrical panel and entry. This space has been used as a rental suite by the previous owner and could easily be configured for that purpose again.

There is a rustic art studio on the property which is well insulated and a comfortable space for inspiration.

Fruit trees, arbutus, bamboo, Japanese maple, rhodendrons and hellebores are complemented by two raised gardens for veggies. A large rock garden and goldfish pond for the gardening enthusiast complete the yard.

Enjoy views of Ganges Harbour from the home. This move in ready home is a great Salt Spring find.
