The Cape on Bowen is nestled on Bowen Island's emerald South-West Shores - an incredibly rare island community just a short 20 minute sail from Vancouver. Situated within The Cape’s 618 acres, encompassing the entire southwest tip of the Island, lies a limited number of 10 acre estate properties offering exceptional privacy, and spectacular views of the southern Gulf, Pasley and Keats Islands and the breathtaking Sunshine Coast.
The southwest-facing exposure features exceptional sunshine, and is warmer than the rest of the island by an average 3 degrees Celsius. The development provides an extensive network of trails leading all throughout this unforgettable coastal property, connecting iconic landmark viewpoints, beaches, and vast, lush forest. There is truly nothing else like it!
Along the western waterfront is a 1-km sunset trail that connects the Cape Roger Curtis Lighthouse park, Roger Curtis pebble beach, and what the island knows to be "Proposal Point" - a romantic viewpoint where couples get engaged. In between there is a spectacular cantilevered walkway overhanging a coastal bluff. On the southern shore is a 32-acre managed Nature Reserve that welcomes the public. To live at the Cape is a privilege. Here is a precious ecological system, rare and diverse. This is a role model development that honours natural heritage.
It is here this exclusive 9.88-acre low-bank Waterfront property presents a unique and rarified opportunity for any discerning Buyer. You will experience daily sightings of eagles, orcas, seals, otters, seals and deer, among other wildlife. The estate is large, and offers magnificent serenity and tranquility. Your long meandering driveway through the forest provides a sense of comfort in "arriving home" to nature. With your private deepwater dock, you can enjoy a liberating boating lifestyle. The natural shoreline boundary is 377 feet with a width of 312 feet. Frontage is 530 feet.
