British Columbia is not without sprawling multi-acre properties, but there aren't many that span more than 100 acres while boasting beautiful design.
However, 3200 Clam Bay Road does just that.
This 104-acre property — also known as the Point House Estate — sits on Pender Island, one of the Gulf Islands that separate Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. The address is currently on the market for $19.8M.
The estate is situated near the northern tip of the Island, with Otter Bay and the Pender Island Golf and Country Club to the south, and Port Washington to the west.
The property includes a beautiful modern home with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and 6,603 sq. ft of living space designed by the notable Bo Helliwell and Kim Smith of Blue Sky Architecture.
The home is found at a vantage point that juts into the Salish Sea, accessed by a narrow road on the west side of the property that extends through a mature forest filled with fir, arbutus, and maple trees.
Blue Sky Architecture specializes in homes that integrate the built form with surrounding landscapes, particularly using organic forms and curved lines, on the principle that there are very few straight lines and 90-degree angles in nature. The most distinct example of this is the roof of the home, which has a unique wave-like form that also serves to direct rainwater towards capture points in the ground below.

The home is shaped like a long, curved rectangle, with all of the living space located in the main floor, save for a 538 sq. ft office on the upper level. All interior floors are finished with wide-plank European white oak and Pietra Piasentina stone tiles, all doors are made of the same white oak, and all walls are finished with lime paint that creates a suede-like illusion.
Directly upon entry is the large 1,335-sq.-ft living room, which overlooks the rear side of the home, as well as a modern and minimalistic kitchen, and a family room that overlooks the front of the home.
Further down the right wing of the estate are three bedrooms, including the primary, which is equipped with two walk-in closets and a four-piece ensuite bathroom, plus a lounge space, a gym, and staircase access to the aforementioned office.
Our Favourite Thing
The central living space on the main floor of the home is definitely the place to gather, as the rear wall consists entirely of windows, bringing in an abundance of natural light. And, because the home is curved, this area also provides tremendous panoramic views of the beautiful landscape outside.
In the left wing of the home are the two remaining bedrooms, another lounge space, the laundry room, a storage room, a utilities room, and a wine cellar.
While the home was built recently, the estate itself has been around since 1874, and is home to the Clam Bay Farm that includes a farmhouse, a 5.5-acre vineyard, acres of untouched old-growth forest, a sawmill, a water treatment facility, a farmworker accommodation building, a cabin, and a beach house.
Last, but certainly and definitely not least, is an expansive 1-km of shoreline that's as scenic as it is long, a gazebo-type space situated next to a private pond, and a 260-ft pier that leads down to a 50-ft dock.
Here, it's like living at a mansion, a farm, and a private island, all in one.
