Situated on the north shore of Birch Point, this high-performance beach home enjoys a view of Boundary Bay, the BC Coastal Range, and beyond. Designed for indoor-outdoor living, the home’s many decks, patios, and porches welcome friends and family to gather in all but the worst weather. When weather does arrive, the spacious two-story great room provides a comfortable spot to watch storms roll in across the bay.
No matter the season, this home checks all the boxes for comfort, efficiency, and durability. In the wet, dark of winter, the house maintains healthy indoor air, ample natural lighting, and a consistent, comfortable temperature throughout. In the spring, summer, and fall, it requires very little maintenance.
From a high-performance perspective, this home was built to and certified by the Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home program and the EnergyStar program. An independent home-rating business determined this beautiful beach house uses about 50% less energy than the average new home. Overall, this budget-conscious abode offers a comfortable, healthy, and eco-friendly place to kick back and enjoy the natural beauty of Birch Point.
