We feel pretty lucky to be living on Vancouver Island. Our principals, John and Sean, both hail from Vancouver, our associate Bryn is from Kamloops, and the rest of us are island locals- but what we all have in common is a love for this wonderful place! We share this passion with those who are familiar with the magic found here, and as our many off-island clients can attest, that passion is contagious. Whether it's Nanaimo, nestled between the ocean and the peaks of Mount Benson, picturesque Parksville with its sprawling sandy beaches, Tofino with its roiling winter storms, or anywhere else beyond or in between, we are surrounded by beauty here.

Spectacular views, amazing weather...it's like we won the lifestyle lottery! But...what if you won the ACTUAL lottery? What could a few million dollars get you on Vancouver Island? Quite a lot as it turns out. When it comes to extravagant luxury properties in breathtaking settings, our island doesn't disappoint. 

We decided to take our last blog post one step further, and compile a list of residential properties currently on the market that are priced to attract affluent buyers. All of these properties have two things in common: they cost millions of dollars and come with views that match the price tag. 

Let's take a look at the 6 Most Expensive Properties Currently Listed in Central Vancouver Island:

6. 3934 Shell Beach Road, Ladysmith
