British Columbia boasts so many amazing communities! At Jane Hoffman Realty, we want to celebrate the stunning beauty and alluring character of our entire province.
From the sunny hills of the Okanagan to the fresh and rugged coast, there are some truly remarkable places. We’re proud to showcase the most unique properties available.
Bowen Island –just a 20 minute ride across the water from Vancouver– is one of these exceptional spots.
BC’s awe-inspiring beauty shines in the Howe Sound archipelago. Though frequented by explorers and vacationers since the 1700s, Bowen remains mostly untouched by the hustle of nearby Vancouver. The old-growth rainforests, rocky shores, incomparable ocean views, and laid-back ambience attract a range of residents. Artists, tourists, and city commuters who want to get away from it all at the end of the day make their homes here on the Island.
It lies an easy distance from the conveniences of West Vancouver, but life on Bowen feels a world away. Snug Cove, the central landing point for visitors, offers eclectic shops, historic buildings, and beautiful hiking trails. This is the main pier for the regular ferry service from Horseshoe Bay and privately-operated water-taxis, as well as an efficient public marina. The welcoming Bowen locals have schools and municipal services, and a variety of community leagues, clubs, and classes for all ages.
A Unique Oppourtunity
There are more than 30 unique neighbourhoods on Bowen Island, but The Cape on Bowen is a rare gem. Encompassing the unhurried southwest stretch of the island, these 618 acres are poised to become a masterpiece of environmentally-sensitive residential development. This offering showcases the incredible natural environment, each 10-acre forested, waterfront estate boasting unparalleled views of the Strait of Georgia. Capture evening sunsets over the Gulf and San Juan Islands, and enjoy exceptional privacy. The generous properties are ready for division, with unobtrusive water, waste, electric, and telecommunications services, paved roadways, and approved rural residential zoning.
Just across the Strait from Bowen, discover the glorious Sunshine Coast.
A 40-minute ferry ride from the West Vancouver terminal brings residents and visitors to the peaceful hamlet of Gibsons. The quiet village atmosphere belies a breathtaking, iconic British Columbia coastal experience.
It may look like a movie set, with timeless shorelines, a charming main street, and ready access to nature and leisure activities, but that’s all a part of real life, here. Add in the inviting community spirit, and it’s clear why Gibsons is such a sought-after place to settle. Find your spot above this idyll at the stunning Eagleview Heights. Thoughtfully-designed, this condo and townhome development focuses on clean, modern living and cutting-edge energy-efficient construction.
This beautiful aerie is the future of the Sunshine Coast.
When the tidal pools, dramatic skies, and soft-sighing winds call to you, there are few places that can match BC’s south coast.
