If you take to daydreaming, you may spend time planning your personal oasis, your place of retreat, your home that would give you sheer pleasure. Today we present you with a home where your daydreams can come true. Welcome to Alder Road!
This Tudor-style executive home is set in an extraordinary landscape with water views that will captivate your heart. Amidst 7 acres of cultivated gardens and natural forest stands this distinctive 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom, 4500 sq. ft. home that offers you several “usage scenarios”.
Welcome to Alder Road
You may require a large single-family home. You may desire to use this home as a Bed-and- Breakfast business. With the home’s incredible layout and gorgeous setting, it has already been employed as a successful, top-ranked B&B facility. Perhaps, you need a home to accommodate a multi-generational family, or you are considering rental suites for students. Again this lovely property provides you with all these exceptional options.
Your half-hour drive from Victoria northward up the Saanich Peninsula takes you through West Coast vistas that encompass mountains, forests, farmland and superb ocean scenics. You come to Tatlow Road via West Saanich Road or the Pat Bay Highway. Immediately you are taken by the “countrified character” of the surroundings. As you turn onto Alder Road, there it is…the spectacular view and your new home!
The driveway leads you to spacious parking for up to 7 vehicles. The dwelling reveals warm, dark-and-light taupe colours that blend perfectly with nature’s offerings. Rooflines in multiple configurations and shake- shingling collaborate with deck-and-window detail to create a sense of understated glamour. You love the home’s wood-and-stucco exterior! Up the tiered slate-stone stairway, side-scaped with garden textures and colours and through a wide arching rose arbour.
You note that Alder Road is lined with budding weeping willows. Then, turning into your property, you see the sweeping lawns, tall alders and majestic evergreens. The rock-lined paved roadway welcomes you to your beautiful yard, with its terraced gardens, rock walls, flowers and shrubs all meticulously manicured. And of course there is the extensive pond—Gardner’s Pond—projecting a sense of spaciousness and calm, and the centrepiece of this oasis. Against this exquisite backdrop, the large house speaks with eloquence and style.
Then you arrive at the large entryway patio, really a portico with triangulated wood roof and slate-stone base. Your well trained eye enjoys the craftsmanship of the newly installed doorway, beautifully designed in wood-warmth, and panelled windows above and along the sides.
What a welcome feeling you get at this entryway! Two lanterns and side-windows bookend the doorway. You see your wicker table-and-chair set at this entryway patio, where you will enjoy a chat with your neighbour over a summer cup of tea.
As you enter, you take in the details of this stylish 12-by-7 ft. foyer. The limestone floor inset contrasts tastefully with the oak floors matching the doorway. White crown molding outlines the ceilings. The archway to the right leads to the coat closet and seating for putting on your shoes. One of your lovely paintings will fit perfectly on the wall here next to the window.
To the left, you discover the powder room with its high wainscoting, 24-by-12 in. ceramic floor tiles, modern pedestal sink, and oval mirror with 3-globe light fixture. The window brightens this conveniently located bathroom. Colours here are modern, fresh and bright.
Family Room First
It’s nice to find a home that offers you space that’s both surprising and appropriate. From the well designed entryway, you look through a larger archway that reveals the family room connecting to the kitchen. This 17x15ft. family room distinguishes itself with hand-scraped maple floors and a stately wood-and-marble propane fireplace accenting the gorgeous flooring. The broad mantel will show off some of your prize collectibles. Crown moldings and a large, medallioned ceiling fan-and-light fixture top this comfortable space. Windows with glimpses of rock wall, lawn-and-tree greenery brighten this area.
French patio doors lead out to a tree-house and swing set. You love the feeling of this family room. Turn on the TV, relax in your leather recliner, pour yourself an Innis and Gunn and watch your Canadian team defeat the opposition. How good is that?
So that you’re not left out of the game or conversation, the family room connects with the country-style kitchen. Spacious at 16- by-11 ft., this gourmet kitchen flaunts gorgeous granite countertops, bar- stool seating for 5 at the peninsula and 2 more at the island, and high-end appliances that include 2 Jenn Air ovens, a Wolf 5-burner propane stove-top, and 2 refrigerators. This kitchen was completely renovated in 2006.
The warm colour of wood kitchen cabinets accents the country styling. The wood- enclosed stove vent adds prominence, as does the backsplash feature above the range-top. Ceramic-tile floors are kitchen-practical. You love the fact that there is more than enough workspace for your culinary preparations, and more than enough storage space for all kitchen essentials.
The curvy kitchen sink is nice. So is the brightness from pot-lights and the distinctive 3-globe light fixture above the sink. The twin skylights above really stream in the sunlight. Two windows above the sink show off another rock-and-tree masterpiece. Another super feature: a corner cupboard with turnstile holds 3 recycle containers. This kitchen truly fulfills your kitchen daydream!
Divine Dining & Living
You’ve prepared a sumptuous dinner, you’ve invited your family and friends, and you’re anticipating an evening of conversation and laughter and fine wine. So through the kitchen into the separate 15-by- 15 ft. dining room which will seat 14 at your country-style table. This large dining room will also accommodate a double buffet-and-hutch set.
The same “sculpted” maple flooring as the family room’s adds to the ambiance, as does the 6-sconce, country-style light fixture above the table. A 3-window view of forest, trail and pond highlights the spaciousness.
Formal Living Room
Panelled-glass French doors lead you to the 18-by-15 ft. formal living room. A standout statement here is the floor-to- ceiling, light-colour-brick, wood fireplace which you will cozy up to on wintry evenings. Flooring is elegant dark-wood maple as in family and dining rooms. White crown moldings line the ceiling. Large corner windows bring pond-views inside. Dimmable pot lights allow just the right lighting.
A door leads out to the sprawling deck that will hold up to 30 partying friends enjoying the fire pit and umbrella if necessary. Dimmable pot lights are also evident on the deck… for evening appies and drinks.
This upper-peninsula home comes replete with quality, practical design elements to satisfy any home owner. The master-suite mix offers you beautiful wood floors, crown molding and spaciousness you’ll really appreciate. Three corner windows reveal front-yard lawns and Alder Road weeping willows. A windowed doorway leads out onto a large 15-by-6 ft. deck exclusive to the master.
Again glass panels offer uninhibited views as you enjoy your morning deck-side coffee. On the opposite side of this beautiful bedroom, a similar doorway leads onto the side deck which showcases your hot-tub for 8, overshadowed by a retractable awning. You’ll love the sunsets, enjoy the Big Dipper and North Star. Whatever the weather, evenings with friends and family will never be the same again. Every master requires a deep walk-in closet, with the versatility of adjustable storage configurations. The depth of this closet will house all your fine fashions. Also the far end gives you space for a sitting/vanity area beneath the glow of a globular chandelier.
The Master Mix
The en-suite makes a bold statement with its white “mod-vintage” vanity, trendy mirror and modern sink-faucet set. The large tiled shower enclosur
