A cabin in Vancouver Island’s ‘rainforest’ is up for sale


Set in a secluded grove on Vancouver Island, this pair of “rainforest cabins” offer a dose of minimalism amidst the rugged beauty of the West Coast.

The bespoke Vancouver Island property is two years old and is listed for $1.5 million through Sotheby’s International Realty. Her cedar-shingled master cabin has towering walls of glass, with views of the surrounding trees and natural rock formation from her wood-paneled interiors.

Concrete floors run through the open-plan layout that unfolds around the kitchen, with a large marble island grounding the space. In the master bedroom, meanwhile, a freestanding tub provides space to soak and take in the forest views, and a second bedroom is flooded with natural light from its sizable skylight (star gazing , anybody ?).

There’s a recycled sense of rustic minimalism at 1220 Starlight Grove, which is steps from East Sooke Park and a short hike from Iron Mine Bay with its views of Colombia’s famous Juan De Fuca Straight and Olympic Mountain. -British.

A second free-standing studio cabin is located on the way to the main house and follows the same natural palette as its sibling – but on a smaller scale. Its all-wooden interior includes a stove and basic kitchen, with the bedroom located in the attic and accessed by a ladder. It could be used as guest accommodation (the property is a 50 minute drive from downtown Victoria) or as a separate home studio.
