Residence on Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring Island, Canada
Part of the charm of Salt Spring Island is that it is accessible only by ferry or float plane. The southerly tip of Scott Point, a narrow peninsula, provides a secluded spot for the house with panoramic views of both Ganges and Long Harbours and the neighboring islands, animated by the comings and goings of the ferries and planes. A boathouse on Long Harbour, a teahouse to the west adjacent to the entrance drive overlooking Ganges Harbour, and a spa pavilion situated at the south end of the Point join the U shaped main house that wraps around an entrance courtyard sheltered from the strong, often cold, prevailing southerly winds.
