Standing on the expansive terrace, looking out over the vast Pacific Ocean, you truly feel like you are perched on the edge of the world; your only neighbours are the swooping birds, breaching whales, and the sailboats that float on the ocean below. The master planned community of Silver Spray in Sooke is brilliant, and this Ridgeco custom designed home is its crowning jewel. It is so private and peaceful, and yet part of a new community that grows more vibrant with each passing day.
This 2014 custom built house on Thornton Heights sits on a .65 acre mountain bluff and features 4,260 square feet of impeccably finished living space. The interior of this home, which features four bedrooms and four bathrooms, is well laid out, spacious and luxurious, while offering a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle.
The main floor features a large open plan living space with family room, dining area and gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and sleek quartzite countertops. The back of the kitchen connects to the front door via a hidden pantry hallway and mudroom. Tucked away from the main hub of the house is the master retreat that features a generous 18×14 bedroom with walk-out terrace, massive walk-in closet, ensuite laundry, and a master bathroom that includes a deep soaker tub with ocean views.
The lower level of Thornton Heights offers the perfect set up for large or extended families or to provide rental income. There is a second large family room, flanked by a den/office and second master bedroom with ensuite on one side, and two additional bedrooms that share a bath on the other side, which could easily be converted to a private and spacious 1-bedroom suite. The roughed in kitchenette is already in place!
Separate from the house is a very large three car garage with space above to develop an additional two bedroom suite, or separate home office. Possibilities at Thornton Heights are endless, just like the oceanfront views.
Of course, when you live here, it’s all about the outdoors and this house does not disappoint. Walking distance to the East Sooke Park, Thornton Heights is close to everything this growing area has to offer, without being too close to anything, if you know what I mean. The home features terraces on the main and lower levels, each offering 270 degree views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, Olympic mountains, Sooke Hills and the magnificent Pacific Ocean.
