WELCOME TO THE ORCHARD HOUSE
Welcome to Orchard House, your storybook vacation home on Hornby Island. Set oceanside on 3 sprawling acres of working orchard, this magical home is an idyllic retreat set on a historic property home to early Hornby settlers. Located nearby Phipps Point, Orchard House enjoys all day sun and outstanding sunset vistas year-round.
Seemingly quaint at first glance, this enchanting farmhouse dazzles the moment you step inside the light-filled atrium and see the consideration paid to even the smallest detail. Made intimate with the warmth of cozy spaces and beautiful furniture, this spacious home comfortably accommodates 8 people over two floors along with ample outdoor living spaces, including a large covered veranda, cliffside glass balcony, and a covered arbour made to contemplate the ornamental ponds. Every room enjoys views to the gardens, ocean or mountains beyond. Built-in custom cabinetry and industrial high end appliances make the large kitchen a gourmet’s dream for cooking and entertaining. A long-table truly worthy of the name grounds the dining room and makes room for all. The generous living room is made to sink into at the end of the day or snuggling as you savour the warmth of the wood stove while storm watching.
The luxury extends to three large bedrooms with king-sized beds complete with ensuite. Two of the bedrooms share a Juliet balcony facing the waters of Lambert Channel where you often hear and view sea lions, seals and whales as they travel by Orchard House.
The gardens are truly something to behold and a veritable feast for the senses. Disconnect and unwind while aimlessly wandering the 3-acre property among fruit and nut trees, a heritage rose garden, and other mature native plants before arriving to commune with dragonflies, butterflies and bathing songbirds visiting the magical ponds and trickling waterfalls. Take advantage of the completely fenced property and open fields for games of catch, bocci, hide and go seek or simply throw down a picnic blanket and idle the day away under the endless sky.
A short 2-minute stroll to Phipps Points ensures your never late to say goodbye to the sun. Providing easy access for kayaks and paddleboards or simply to swim, Phipps Point is a Hornby favourite but far enough off the beaten path to enjoy in relative privacy. We invite you to come enjoy Orchard House and the simple joys of life soon.
