BCLiving takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province
Address: 3051 McAnally Road, Victoria
The skinny: Three-bedroom, four-bathroom, 6,465-square-foot house on almost 70,000 square feet of Vancouver Island waterfront.
The bling: Exhibitionists get ready! Here’s the perfect clothes-optional house—with wall-to-wall windows from every angle. There are three double-decker spurs jutting out from a circular central staircase, offering sea views for you to prance in front of to your heart’s content and a glimpse of whatever you fancy putting on (or taking off) for unsuspecting pleasure boaters. Surrounded by three beaches—two of which belong to you—this is a huge home that’s been built to make you feel at one with nature. There are no cozy nooks, darkened media rooms or basement man caves here, just pure, unadulterated openness. And when the weather turns too inclement to sunny yourself on the deck or practise your morning Sirsasana pose, just take a paddle round your indoor pond—yes, it’s indoors, and it’s a pond—look out at the raging sea and release your inner mermaid. Trust us, your aura will never feel unloved here.
The hidden extras: Solar-powered heating and cooling system, nanny suite, separate caretaker suite for your private window cleaner, fire pit, underground sprinklers and, um, we did mention that indoor pond, didn’t we?
