The big sell: Bowen Island is only 15 minutes by ferry from West Vancouver’s Horseshoe Bay, making it a comfortable commutable distance to downtown Vancouver. Many properties enjoy spectacular ocean views, such as this custom-built home set high up on a mossy bluff overlooking Collingwood Channel with a panoramic smorgasbord of island and mountain vistas. It was constructed in 2002 and capitalizes on its position producing a light and airy home through banks of windows and skylights. The interior features hardwood flooring, high-end appliances, granite countertops, a heat recovery ventilation system, a heap pump for efficient heating, and a feature wood stove fireplace. There is a 14-by-11-foot hobby room on the main floor, which could become a home office or consulting room with the addition of a separate entrance. The master bedroom on the main floor contains a walk-in closet and glass doors that lead out to a deck. There are walking and hiking trails nearby, as well as the beaches of the Bluewater neighbourhood.
