''Knockcool'' was originally part of the Mountjoy estate owned by Frederick Pemberton, son of Vancouver Island's first surveyor-general. Today, this property showcases an exquisite custom-built West Coast contemporary home on an extraordinary 14,000-square-foot lot. Nestled within one of South Oak Bay's enchanting tree-lined streets, the architect ingeniously incorporated the majestic Garry oak by bending the original design in the middle, departing conventional square rooms and right angles and introducing subtle variations in ceiling angles that enhance visual intrigue. The interior decor seamlessly harmonizes with nature, featuring a serene palette of calming off-whites, greys, and brown with a sleek and open modern design that embraces a sense of spaciousness. The main living areas are bright and airy, with large windows that let in plenty of natural light and offer stunning views of the professionally landscaped grounds. Upstairs, you'll find a dedicated primary suite that offers privacy and seclusion from the rest of the home. The luxurious ensuite bathroom and spacious walk-in closet are just a few of the features that make this room a relaxing retreat. The outdoor space is truly exceptional, with a newly installed pool, a firepit, patio and play areas, making this property the ultimate oasis for relaxation and entertainment. You'll also appreciate the double garage with a studio suite and a full bath. A tranquil estate, minutes to town, the ocean & Oak Bay Village.
