Cou­ple loves peace­ful home

Sweep­ing views of farm­land on Saanich Penin­sula

Ex­pan­sive, serene and lux­u­ri­ous are the best ways to de­scribe Linda Pen­dray’s 7,000-square-foot rancher that rests amid 18 lush hectares on the Saanich Penin­sula near Vic­to­ria, B.C.

Sur­rounded by sweep­ing views of emer­ald farm­land — and gaz­ing as far as Mount Baker in nearby Washington State in the east — the home has a peace­ful at­mos­phere, in­side and out.

The feel­ing of calm be­gins the moment a vis­i­tor en­ters through the porte-cochère and catches the swish­ing sound of a water­wall in the en­try.

“It was my hus­band’s dream to build a new house, to take ad­van­tage of the won­der­ful view of Mount Baker,” says Pen­dray.

“He had to se­ri­ously con­vince me to start again, be­cause we’d al­ready built two houses and I loved where we were liv­ing al­ready. It was a chal­lenge for me, but now I love it — es­pe­cially the water­wall.”

She de­scribes her home as “mod­ernist coastal farm­house” and em­pha­sizes it’s well-lived in.

The mas­ter bed­room looks out over farm fields on the Saanich Penin­sula.

Fea­tur­ing gran­ite and wood, the kitchen is a gourmet cook’s dream.
