Down a long driveway you will discover a magical secluded haven: a 5.16 acre forested parcel overlooking Tofino Inlet & the wildlife Sanctuary with 885 feet of tranquil water frontage. This 5000 sq. ft., 6 bedroom, 5 bath Cape Cod style house looks out over a panoramic expanse of tidal waterway that is breathtaking. It was built in 1990 using massive hemlock beams cut from the property & island milled fir floors. On the main floor is a private sitting room with French door entry and an expansive open dining room & kitchen, both with Vermont Casting wood stoves. Off the kitchen is a beautiful bright sunroom with French doors opening to a wrap-around verandah. Additionally, there is a mudroom, laundry, half bath and pantry. On the top floor, there are four bright bedrooms with magnificent views of the tidal waterfront, including the master with en suite. On the ground floor are two spacious private entry, one bedroom suites with fabulous inlet and mountain views, and a wonderful wide deck. These suites could readily be opened to create a 1500 SF single suite. Thoughtfully designed, this home features "1920s" finishing details: divided-light windows & doors, wainscoting, crown molding, French doors baseboards & traditional tiles. Amidst massive old growth trees, there is also a self-contained cottage, and a hot tub bubbles in a forest glade. Anchor your boat in summer, fish in the channels and check your crab trap in the inlet. This is a wonderful home, business, or family retreat!
