Last year was a banner year for high-end home sales in the Comox Valley. For more than a decade the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board would report a handful of million dollar sales in this area. Last year there were 31 million dollar sales. Luxury Waterfront homes led the pack with the most sales but there were also some great homes sold in the Comox Peninsula, Courtenay North, Union Bay, Courtenay West and in Merville and Black Creek.
Crown Isle is another area where you can find custom built high end homes with some terrific views. While the number of listings at the start of this year has been less than normal, expect to find some great homes come on the market. Few areas can rival the number of superior quality finishing than in many of these homes. Gourmet kitchens, stunning master ensuite bathrooms, lifelike experiences in home theatre rooms, large expansive great rooms and formal dining rooms are just a few of the many features in these abodes.
The island lifestyle in the valley is complemented by relative bargains in the high end home market when compared to large cities like Vancouver. Why pay 4 million dollars for a home when you can find great luxury homes in the valley at a fraction of the cost? Some of these homes are located in urban areas while others can be found in fairly private areas of the valley. Some stand proud and prominent on high bank waterfront properties while others offer walk on oceanfront access.
If views of scenic wonders like our ocean and nearby mountain ranges are what appeal to you there are many properties that offer exactly that. The Comox Glacier, the Coastal Mountain range and the Georgia Strait are all options form which to choose. Add eagles flying overhead and killer whales surfacing in nearby waters and the natural wonders stand out even more.
Last year sales of these homes ranged from just over a million dollars to three million dollars. There are homes listed up to $3.74M on the current market. Some are simply spectacular and over the top. If luxury is what you need you can certainly find many options here. There are, of course, many other homes below the million dollar mark that are also terrific executive homes. Why not drop by a Comox real estate office and take a look for yourself?
