Bowen’s November 2023 Home Sales

Four homes and a vacant lot made up the island's final sales of 2023
927 Valhalla Place, with its five bedrooms and four bathrooms, was the top sale of November going for $1.845 million.

November had five property sales dotted around the island. Four of these were home sales which doubled October’s tally. There was another home sale on Keats Island too, mirroring October’s number.

The month’s top sale sits high on the island’s east side with an unimpeded view to the mainland. The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home at 927 Valhalla Place went for $1.845 million after a 37-day stay on the market. Overall the 23-year old home is 4,244 square feet on a 0.63-acre lot.

Along with the three different levels of deck, the top floor of the three-storey house functions as its own master bedroom. There’s also an art studio, double-car garage, and a home gym.

Close behind for the second-highest sale of November was the property at 1504 Adams Road. At 2.41-acres this lot has enough space for two homes on it, the main house coming in at 3,395 square feet and the second one totalling 1,155 square feet. Altogether the homes and property sold for $1.575 million after nearly 19 months of being available.

The three-storey main home is a four-bed, three-bath which has been lifted and fully renovated since its original build. The second house is a newly built two-bedroom and two-bath spanning two floors. The acreage also includes a 384 square foot workshop.

A third house also closed for seven figures with the sale of 1555 Eagle Cliff Road for $1.31 million. The 1975-built three-bed, three-bath rancher was snapped up just 10 days after being listed.

The rancher, made from Western Red Cedar, also has a basement which essentially equals the main floor in size. This brings total house space to 1,488 square feet on 0.3-acres. There’s a separate studio and workshop in the backyard, along with a variety of trees including Maple, Fir, and Fruit.

The fourth-highest selling home of November is right around the corner from the second at 1471 Tunstall Boulevard. The three-bedroom, one-bathroom house closed for $875,000 after 58 days on the market. The two-storey house is 1,428 square feet on a 0.21-acre lot.

The home is close to Tunstall Bay Beach and the neighbourhood clubhouse. There’s a bus stop right outside the house, and a wall of trees along the road for shade and privacy.

One vacant lot also sold on Bowen last month, in the south near the golf course. A 0.2-acre plot of land at Lot 9 of Seymour Bay Drive went for $900,000, just 20 days shy of a year of listing.

The space is one of few flat lots on the often-steep island, allowing for a level house and driveway. The style of home will be up to the new buyer, with the opportunity to build to a maximum of 2,574 square feet given the property size.

Keats Island was once again an attractive destination with the sale of 199 Esplanade Road for $525,000. The four-bedroom, one-bathroom cabin-style house built in 1971 is 1,382 square feet on 0.17-acres of land, and sold 198 days after being listed.

The cabin is within a five minute walk of both the beach and community dock. It also comes with a sizeable deck measuring more than 550 square feet, and a fireplace inside the home.

And on Gambier Island a vacant lot on the island’s east side sold in November. The 4.82-acre property along Brigade Bay, known as Lot 7, sold for $360,000 after 50 days on the market.

The property comes with a drilled well on-site, and access to a spot at the Brigade Bay marina. Around 450 feet of the property, mostly rocky, borders Brigade Bay.
