Inside a $6M Vancouver Island Home with Stunning Brick and Stonework


About 26 kilometres north of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, a small coastal community called Nanoose Bay awaits.

Known as one of the premier spots on Vancouver Island, this area boasts fair weather year-round, an abundance of sunshine, and a beautiful property at 2230 Chelsea Place, minutes away from the Straight of Georgia. It’s a prime location for a quick getaway or a long-term second home, with a sailing club, wellness club, and golf club all a short drive away.

The property was custom built in 2007 with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, across 5,515 sq. ft of well-crafted living space, all atop a 0.80-acre lot.

The main floor houses the kitchen and dining room, which are accented with a copper ceiling and magnificent metal work. On the main floor is also the primary bedroom, with an elegant five-piece ensuite bathroom.

The lower level includes two other large bedrooms, one of which includes an ensuite bathroom, and both have large windows that allow for occupants to soak in the views surrounding the property.

And when you want to soak in more than just the views, the home’s stunning indoor swimming pool is the place to go. It’s incredibly designed, with stone floors and partially-stone walls, which makes it feel like you’re swimming inside a private cave… which also happens to have access to a steam room and two additional stone hot tubs.


Elsewhere around the property, you’ll find a two-car garage, an entertainment area with a bar, a 150-bottle wine storage room, multiple gas fireplaces, a firepit, and a built-in bunk room. Further, the home is filled with well-crafted touches and finishes, from the engineered hardwood and marble flooring to the cement board fascia and customer concrete work.

Our Favourite Thing

Look through the property carefully and you’ll notice a recurring use of grey-brick and stone. Whether it’s the walls of the dining room, the waterfall feature by the swimming pool, the walls around the kitchen and entertainment area, or the stone hot tubs inside and outside the home — the consistency is a stand-out feature of each room, and it helps make the whole place feel cozy as well.

All in all, this is an extraordinary home, with the views of Nanoose Bay to match, in a location on Vancouver Island where you’ll have few complaints or unfulfilled needs. Really, what more could you ask for?
