Coveted Vancouver Island development proves oceanfront living never looked so good

This 3.1-acre development is the first project to be built on Saratoga Beach in more than 30 years

Oceanfront living is becoming an increasingly rare opportunity for home buyers, especially in new developments that create legacy homes in locations close to a host of amenities. But that is precisely what prospective buyers can expect from a series of new homes from The Beach House at Saratoga, the first project in over 30 years to be built on Saratoga Beach. The spot is just 30 minutes from Comox airport and an hour-and-a-half drive from Nanaimo ferry terminal.

A rare offering of only 30, West Coast modern, luxury beach homes on one of Vancouver Island’s most coveted waterfront locations, this legacy property has been a haven for both vacationers and locals alike for generations.

So what makes Saratoga so special?

“There’s an incredible sense of calm and tranquility here, something old-timely,” says Anna DiFiore, sales director for The Beach House at Saratoga. “Also, with miles of white sand, the beach is breathtaking in any season. Most of the provincial parks that surround Saratoga Beach are within walking distance of The Beach House. You are very connected with nature here, yet are only 30 minutes to the Comox Airport, Campbell River and Mt Washington, and within walking distance to a marina, golf course and other local amenities.”

Accordingly, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, skiing and bear and whale watching are regional pastimes, augmented by an abundance of local wineries, farmers markets, distilleries and adventure tours.

DiFiore adds, “A typical example of this location’s generational appeal as a hidden gem is Vancouver resident Daphne Nicholson, who vacationed on the development site with her family starting in 1953. Even though as an adult she purchased a vacation home on Pender Island, she continues to book her vacations on this beach.”

The developers have spent the past five years honing the vision of their 3.1-acre property and believe that the 30 two-bedroom, two-bathroom homes are arriving at an ideal time: when a growing number of prospective buyers are working remotely and also seeking peaceful surroundings. “We have three stunning floor plans, all with ocean views, and eight homes directly on the beach,” she says. “Very high-end finishing packages are standard.”

A presentation center will be open by appointment in early June, or as directed by Provincial Health. Due to the high amount of interest in The Beach at Saratoga, please register at saratogabeachhouse.ca for a complete buyer's package.
