Dream Home: $3.99 Million for a Mayne Island Hideaway

What if money was no object? We take you inside one of the most beautiful real estate offerings in the province

Address: 630 Tinker Road, Mayne Island

Price: $3,998,000

Listing: West Coast Modern 

The skinny: Four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 3,490-square-foot home on Mayne Island

The chic: This stealthy sanctuary is located at the summit of a 52.7-acre private mountain. Truly for those who want privacy, the only access is via a private entrance at the base where you’ll have to complete a 700-metre drive through forest pathways to take you 500 feet above sea level. Shrouded by evergreen trees at the peak, this home blends beautifully into the nature around it. The curved roof profile flows into the surrounding terrain, and the use of smooth angles in the interior makes this space feel like it’s part of the forest. The use of dark wooden panels both inside and outside this residence acts as a pleasing contrast with the cream walls. Designers also incorporated different types of wood and rugged stone sculptures to play with texture and to add more natural atmosphere into the space. Need to relax? Gaze your eyes out into the horizon from the bathroom window as you soak in a warm bath after a long day.

The hidden extras: This residence was originally created by Blue Sky Architecture in 1993 and remastered in 2021 by Measured Architecture, who won Western Living’s Architects of the Year in 2022. In addition to the main building consisting of a ground and upper floor, this home also offers a separate 661-square-feet cottage house with one bedroom and one bathroom. A barn and workshop area, along with a garage is also part of the home.
