Imagine having your choice of any property on Chesterman Beach to build your dream home - the original owner of this property had that opportunity and chose this lot. At 0.8 acres & 120ft of water frontage it is one of the largest on the beach. It faces south, enjoying sun all day but blocked from the predominant winds. Most importantly it offers panoramic views of both North and South Chestermans, something that few on the beach can boast. The original owner then chose award winning architect Ron Thom, of Massey College & Trent University, to design the house. His vision is still encapsulated in this extremely unique home - from the handmade tiles and handcrafted shutters with inlaid colored glass, to the wrap around panoramic windows offering views of the beach from nearly every nook of the house. Open concept living on the main level w/walk in pantry, cozy wood burning fireplace and a sunroom leading to the sunny exterior deck. Enjoy the extensive use of locally sourced cedar w/hints of Japanese inspiration. The vistas get even better in the third floor master suite, where a favorite past time will be watching the waves from both beaches collide at high tide. Just imagine waking up there. The first floor houses 2 more bedrooms, a full bath, and a self-contained studio suite, making the main home a legal & very successful vacation rental. The outdoor space is its own special paradise, with meandering cedar decks, beachfront hot tub & waterfront deck. Venture a few steps from your private oasis and you can sink your toes into the sand, wander to Frank Island or head out for a surf. Zoning here would allow a cottage to be built if the studio suite was absorbed back into the main home, if you prefer. In a time when Tofino was still very unknown it was rare to see such care and skill put into designing a house and outdoor space. But here it is and this is the outcome- a stunning property with a truly iconic home.
