A rare and stunning 5-acre equestrian property (not in the ALR!) located only minutes from Shawnigan Lake Village. Currently configured for horses, but offers endless opportunities for home businesses, hobby farming, Airbnb, or a relaxed rural lifestyle. Vast open fields, abundant daily sun, and complete privacy from neighbouring homes - surrounded by hiking trails and rainforest, only minutes from the lake or a short drive to Duncan or Langford.
The main house has been lovingly cared for by its original owners. It offers a functional 2.5-level floor plan with the kitchen and living room on the main floor, a large rec room, bathroom, and laundry on the lower, with all other bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper. A recently installed fully-ducted heat pump provides efficient heating and cooling throughout the home, with a propane fireplace for secondary heating and ambiance. Other highlights include a south-facing patio for hosting family and friends, a double-car garage, and a 662 sq/ft full-height basement for cold and dry storage.
The sprawling 5-acre property is a mixture of open fields and towering cedars that could be cleared/milled to open up additional space if required. The two-story detached barn is fully wired and plumbed with three stalls, a chicken coop, a tack room, and an upper hay loft. It is located on the bottom of the property and could be converted for other uses, including a detached workshop or a secondary dwelling. There are two onsite wells; one of which was installed in 2005 and dug to a depth of 505 ft, producing a generous 8 gallons per minute to the property.
