“Knockcool” was originally part of the large Mount Joy estate owned by Frederick Pemberton, son of Vancouver Island’s first surveyor-general. Today the property is home to a stunning custom-built West Coast contemporary home on a rare 14,000 SqFt lot. Located on one of South Oak Bay’s most magical tree-lined streets, the architect took the original model and bent it in the middle to accommodate the Garry oak. Now instead of square rooms & right angles there are subtle variations in the ceiling angles that add interest. Two-storey windows on the main floor mean the trees feel like you can almost touch them. The interior reflects nature w/calming off-whites, greys & browns mixed w/splashes of colour creating a sleek & open modern design. Dedicated upper level master suite; flexible main floor; oversized double car garage w/versatile attached studio. Retreat to the professionally landscaped private backyard w/dry riverbed. A tranquil estate, minutes to town, the ocean & Oak Bay Village.
