THE CAPE ON BOWEN
> An Expansive Island Wilderness
The Cape On Bowen is an impressive island property. The 618-acre site slopes gently upward from untouched coastlines to reach a dense forest above. Along the water, the property traces 3.7 kilometres of untouched beaches, coastal bluffs, and profound forest and oceanside views. And it all lies in a microclimate that enjoys much more sun, for more of the year, than most of the surrounding region.
A rich ecosystem thrives on these lands. Arbutus, seaside juniper and wildflower meadows bloom. Deer move silently through the woods. Birdcalls can be heard everywhere. Seals, bald eagles, sea lions, and – once in a while – whales can be spotted off the many viewpoints of this ancient coastal bluff.
The trail system that interlaces all of this natural wonder is impressive. These trails compare to the best in the region for sheer variety of terrain and picturesque views of the ocean and neighbouring islands. And a walk along The Roger Curtis Sea Walk, in the quiet of the evening after dinner, must be experienced. The light from the water, the peace of these woods, and the sound of the ocean on the shore make this walk the perfect embodiment of natural island living.
In this setting, The Cape On Bowen’s extensive, private 10-acre lots present a very unique opportunity. Entering the site along Cape Drive, one has a sense of a gradual reveal, a slow unveiling of the mystery of this place. The estates are large, and the long winding roads and driveways ensure that homes are protected from view. Owners here can choose from a variety of sites on which to build their homes, whether to maximize oceanfront vistas, or enjoy the peaceful setting of their own expansive forested land. This is a supremely private, truly special island estate property, to define as you wish.
