Saanich may not be the most-known municipality on Vancouver Island, but its physical attributes are second to none, as it borders six other municipalities -- including Victoria, the capital of British Columbia -- and blends both the rural and urban beauties of Vancouver Island.
With a population of over 110,000, Saanich also has one of the largest populations on Vancouver Island. And now, a custom home that just hit the market would be perfect for anybody looking to lay roots and explore all the Island has to offer.
The property sits at 2911 Mount Baker View Road, in the neighbourhood of Ten Mile Point, just northeast of Victoria and a stone's throw from the waters of the Haro Strait.
Named so because it was about 10 nautical miles from the then-headquarters of the Royal Navy's Pacific Station, Ten Mile Point is not only the most-eastern point of Vancouver Island, but it's also an exclusive pocket where the likes of basketball legend Steve Nash and pop star Nelly Furtado have reportedly owned homes.
The home itself was originally custom-built in 2003, and boasts four bedrooms and four bathrooms across 3,534 sq. ft, all on a 0.33-acre lot.
The home has a variety of modern touches, from the open-concept floorplan and high ceilings to the double French doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The sprawling Great Room is complete with 17'-21' ceilings and a statement-making curved fireplace, and leads into the dining space and gourmet kitchen. This area boasts double island/bar seating, Miele double-wall ovens, and a SubZero fridge/freezer.
The primary bedroom suite, meanwhile, is 738 sq. ft, and has a huge walk-in closet and dressing room to go along with its own beautiful six-piece ensuite bathroom.
Our Favourite Thing
At this point you're probably wondering whether a home that sits on Mount Baker View Road does, in fact, have views of Mount Baker -- and the answer is a resounding yes. What's more, because Ten Mile Point is the eastern-most point of Vancouver Island, and the home is literally steps away from the coastline, the views are completely unobstructed and utterly stunning.
Outside the home you'll find a double garage with workshop and storage space, a professionally-landscaped and fully-fenced garden, and a private terrace with a built-in outdoor fireplace, where you can soak in the sun, fresh air, and ocean breeze.
From top to bottom, this property would serve as a perfect base for those looking to make Vancouver Island “home.”
