Unique 1-acre Lynn Valley property nestled in untouched wildernessThe term “unique,” most often describing things not at all one-of-a-kind, becomes a modest adjective for what may be simply the most unusual and noteworthy property on today’s North Shore property listings. From the “high” of being one of two homes on Lynn Valley’s highest elevation (or at least most northernly property) , to the “low” of extending down to a canyon that forms a natural pool, this property offers possibilities beyond your wildest property dreams.
The secluded property is accessed down the winding driveway of packed soil, reminiscent of travels to a remote wilderness lodge. Greenery abounds, includes 84 rhododendrons and an extensive collection of rare plants. The variety of natural flowering greenery ensure there are blooming plants year-round. The property’s towering trees create a canopy of lush green, as if a carpeted floor of green has risen in the sky, framing the views from inside the property’s home.The full acre of land is set into the Lynn Canyon and every moment spent outside is truly time spent in the great outdoors. Walk your own private nature trails while staying within your own property lines, or set out on the connections to two famous Lynn Valley trailheads that meander through the canyon and park. The property also extends over the water with a parcel of land on the other side, which means your view will never be disrupted.
Follow the Trail
Follow the Trail
Follow your private trail down to the lower lot, where nature really takes this property to the next level of ultimate relaxation. The canyon has created a natural pool at the bottom of the property, that remains all summer long as an amazing private pool that — to top it all off — features a natural waterfall. A man-made rock slide leads directly into the pool, providing that little bit extra that will wow guests of all ages.
When it’s time to head back inside, the property features a 3,000 square foot home nestled into all this splendorous nature. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms offer space for families or for your guests, who might just never want to leave! A new deck was recently renovated to include a hot tub, another place to soak up the sights and sounds of nature all year long. A large two-car garage keeps vehicles protected from the elements and forest friends. There is a suite on site, that has been used in the past for housing family and guests.
Originally built by a local painter, this property is a blank canvas for creating the lifestyle of which you dream. Connect with nature and live like you’re off the grid (your fully on grid here just FYI), develop the home into an entertainment mecca without worry of disturbing anyone other than the birds, or take time to enjoy the land and put your own stamp on it to really suit your needs. The sky’s not just the view – it’s also the limit when it comes to loving your new life in Lynn Valley.
