We like it when people throw away convention and simply craft an artistic free form vision that speaks to them and their environment. The delicate handcrafted detail of every piece of wood and organization of space that captures and honors the stunning beauty of this island is an artistic triumph.
Resting on a dramatic rocky bluff above the famously warm clear waters of Hague Lake, this hand made home was designed to integrate and harmonize with the natural landscape of Cortes island’s northwest coast.
Built over many years by the owner whose passion for woodworking is evident throughout, the house is a reflection of the island’s awesome beauty. A personally crafted work of art, the architectural details are refined but rustic and are a beautifully realized example of expressionistic craftsmanship. The hand made warmth of each piece of wood extends throughout the house and frames the open plan interiors as well as the rugged scenery. With four bedrooms and two baths the house can sleep up to eight with an optional sleeping area with a tent on the floating deck. The fully equipped chef’s kitchen has an adjacent dining area with amazing views overlooking the lake and flows out to the living room. Outside, the sheltered cove and tumbling forest give way to the breathtaking unspolied landscape of the lake and surrounding islands which you can thoroughly enjoy from the expansive decks. This house posesses the soul and beauty that can only be made by hand.
Wifi throughout, library of books, games, and art supplies, with some old school/ new school media options (VHS, mix-tapes and a piano). Housekeeping and laundry facilities.
Located on Cortes Island in the Discovery Islands achipelago in British Columbia, the island is north of the Gulf of Georgia, between Vancouver Island and the mainland and lies at the edge of the vast coastal wilderness. The small town of Manson is within walking distance as are a variety of wonderful public beaches and forests as well as the lagoon and provincial park which is the departure point for the local seaplane. K’was park is directly adjacent to the property as are island favorites: Hank’s Beach, Gorge Harbour, Marina Whaletown commons, Hollyhock Retreat and the enchanting Desolation Sound.
