Three Vancouver Island homes fit for royalty

A look at some of the most expensive Saanich Peninsula real estate currently on the market

Prince Harry reunited with his wife Meghan Markle and their eight-month-old son Archie Monday night, the Associated Press reported, landing at Victoria’s International Airport before being whisked away in a waiting SUV.

Combined with the time the family spent during the holidays at a mansion in North Saanich and their public plans to relocate at least part-time to North America, the rumours that they may make a home on southern Vancouver Island are running rampant.

The VI Free Daily has no plans on hounding the young royals for an answer, but if they are searching for a property here to call home, we’d be happy to offer our assistance.

Here are three current listings in North Saanich fit for royalty.

The first, and most expensive, listing in the area is located at 9750 West Saanich Rd. and comes with a price tag of $10.25 million. According to realtor.ca, this oceanfront country estate is known as Chateau De Lis and it fronts the Saanich Inlet on a six-acre property. Built in 2007, this French chateau-style home is 9,700-square-feet with a 2,136-sq.-ft. guest cottage and a 1,142-sq.-ft. caretaker accommodation. The main house features eight bathrooms, four bedrooms, six fireplaces and a 10-seat theatre.

On the market for $9 million, 528/538 Lands End Rd. features seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. This 2.15-acre oceanfront estate is hidden by dense forest and features a main residence (5,853 sq.-ft.), guesthouse (1,768 sq.-ft.), boathouse, carriage house and caretakers quarters overlooking the Satellite Channel. Built in 2002, it features a 24-foot vaulted ceiling living room and two fireplaces.

Also located on Lands End Road, the third listing comes with a price tag of $7.9 million. Built in 2018, 792 Lands End Rd. is a 0.72-acre lot featuring a custom-built oceanfront home with a heated driveway. The home features four bedrooms with full ensuites as well as an additional 2.5 bathrooms. The property also features a one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse with a full kitchen.

Wherever the royals plan to rest their heads, there are plenty of options for them to choose from in North Saanich.

The palace announced Saturday that the prince and his wife will give up public funding and try to become financially independent. The couple, who were named the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding day, are expected to spend most of their time in Canada while maintaining a home in England near Windsor Castle – in an attempt to build a more peaceful life.
