At the heart of an endangered natural ecosystem, called the Garry Oak savannah, is one of the most unique homes for sale B.C. has to offer. Not only is the mansion itself a work of art, but its standout features will make your jaw drop. Among those features is a waterway that runs through the entire property.

The mansion is located in Metchosin, B.C. on Vancouver Island. It’s perched on a 67-acre oceanfront lot and is “sustainably entwined” with its natural surroundings, says the home’s award-winning designer Marko Simic.

The 10,700-square-foot home has won multiple awards over the years. Its floor-to-ceiling glass windows make you feel like you’re living in luxury among the forest.

“This innovative retreat blurs the boundaries of nature and shelter,” reads the description by Sotheby’s listing agent, Logan Wilson.

The canal that runs throughout the property actually has a purpose. It uses ocean water to power the home’s heating and cooling system in an environmentally conscious way.
