Swanwick Ranch: An Oceanfront Estate in Canada

A contemporary, ocean side retreat situated on 68 acres of land with over 1,400 feet of oceanfront surrounding it, the Swanwick Ranch House in Metchosin, British Columbia seems to justify its pitch as the "...kind of property that doesn't exist in many places on Earth". Designed by Marko Simcic, the architecture, design, and technology behind the Swanwick House are state of the art. Yet, the house flows well with the natural landscape, respectful and mindful of its beautiful surroundings. The house offers some fantastic views and the Canyon River, which not only surrounds the land around the home, but also serves as the hydrothermal radiant energy that provides cooling and heating to the residence. The layout is open and fluid, interconnecting various rooms and fostering interaction between people even at great distances. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxldnlI7obM The property is currently listed at Sotheby's for $17.5M.
