> A Timeless Island Property
The Cape On Bowen is a very rare oceanfront property.
Just 20 minutes of a ferry ride from Vancouver Mainland, The Cape on Bowen encompasses 618 acres and represents the entire southwest tip of Bowen Island. Here lies a limited number of 10-acre nature estates, within an idyllic, tight-knit island of friendly, caring neighbors who form truly intimate human connection based on shared lifestyle, passions and values.
Living here, you'll be immersed in exceptional quietude and tranquility - at one with nature, inspired, nourished, anchored and empowered by it every day. Imagine the sense of comfort in "arriving home" to lush forest, and the utter magic of witnessing the activity and listening to the magnificent calls of animals. You will experience daily sightings of eagles, orcas, seals, otters, sea lions and deer, among other diverse wildlife.
The southwest-facing exposure of The Cape features exceptional sunshine and is warmer than the rest of the island by an average 3 degrees Celsius. The development provides an extensive network of trails leading all throughout this unforgettable coastal property, connecting iconic landmark viewpoints, beaches, and vast, lush forest. There is simply nothing else like it!
Along the western waterfront is a 1-km sunset trail that connects the Cape Roger Curtis Lighthouse park, Roger Curtis pebble beach, and what the island knows to be "Proposal Point" - a romantic viewpoint where couples get engaged. In between there is a spectacular cantilevered walkway overhanging a coastal bluff. On the southern shore within this development is a 32-acre managed Nature Reserve that welcomes the public.
To live at the Cape is an absolute privilege. Here is a precious ecological system, rare and diverse. This is a role model development that honors natural heritage. And here, we invite and welcome a community of conscious residents who cherish Mother Earth, and would be proud, proactive stewards of this unique area that is part of the Howe Sound Biosphere. On the southern coast, we have recently achieved a Nature Reserve Park, through the Bowen Island Conservancy's acquisition of our estates with generous philanthropic funds. Currently The Cape is forming strategic alliances, collaborating with environmental leaders and groups in a concerted effort to extend the Nature Reserve through the entire remaining 82 acres of southern coastline beyond the Conservancy's Nature Reserve Park.
Please join us to further our foundation and build on our mission to set sustainability precedents. We envision a community where the collective treads lightly on the land and its natural resources, where built structures are exemplary in green building systems and technologies, and where horticultural and agricultural practices are regenerative and organic.
Groundwater wells are in place and septic is pre-approved. 45,000 sf of total buildable area is permitted through a primary residence and secondary structures that could accommodate farm stables, detached cottages and home-based business, workshops, studios.
