Oceanfront relaxation at The Cottages at Seabright Farm

The Cottages at Seabright Farm in Point Roberts feature stunning ocean views at an affordable price.



“Look at that sunlight filtering through the trees,” says Wayne Knowles as he drives onto the property at The Cottages at Seabright Farm. “This is a once in a generation opportunity.”

Knowles, the development partner for The Cottages at Seabright Farm, located in Point Roberts, is extremely excited about the project and what it means to the community.

Point Roberts has long been a popular spot for Canadians, especially those from the Lower Mainland looking for a quick and easy getaway without having to deal with a long drive or a ferry. Just across the border from Tsawwassen, you’ll find a relaxing atmosphere with a charming feel, great weather and plenty of activities to keep you as busy as you want to be.

“There’s so many things you can do,” says Knowles. “Or you can do nothing at all.”

The Point Roberts Golf and Country Club is a full 18-hole course for when you’re in the mood to hit the links, or pay a visit to the Lighthouse Marine Park, where you can find plenty of opportunities to see orca whales, comb the beach or go clamming or crabbing. The 275-acre Lily Point Marine Reserve is just a moment down the road from The Cottages at Seabright Farm, with its sandy bluffs and tidal flats. Plus, the full-service Point Roberts Marina has over 900 slips and is just down the road. The unique restaurants and eclectic shops round out the experience.

“Point Roberts has character,” Knowles says. “It’s totally authentic and small enough to be a true community.”

The Cottages at Seabright Farm is located on 62 acres of direct south-facing waterfront, and the land is a rare and exceptional canvas. Vancouver award-winning visionary and design specialist Cal Srigley has been engaged to create a one-of-a-kind community.

“Point Roberts has a unique landscape that shapes our designs,” Srigley states. “Ocean bluffs with long vistas, protected meadows and fields, and sun-dappled woodlands characterize the community and especially our site.”

He notes that the sky, which is seemingly endless, lends character to the landscape. The cottages are based on Point Roberts’ historical summer cottages and simple farm buildings.

“We also incorporated many elements to accommodate outdoor living such as porches, verandas and breezeways to link the buildings together and create outdoor rooms for casual living. We grouped houses together and created intimate enclosed yards around them, freeing up much of the landscape to give the appearance of farm clusters rather than sub-division lots,” Srigly says. “The overall effect is of a small rural settlement, with open land throughout and picturesque cottages that are charming, yet simple and authentic in their detail and materials.”

The Cottages at Seabright Farm are designed for family fun, whether you want to go horseback riding on one of the trails, learn something at the community barn and gardens on the property, wander the beach looking for driftwood or play board games on your deck.

On-site resident farmer and caretaker George Wright is sure to be part of why your every experience at your cottage getaway will be wonderful.

Wright will be available to help you plant a flower garden, grow vegetables, teach you about woodworking or just sit around and have a chat. He has been one of the inspirational forces behind The Cottages at Seabright Farm, and it’s obvious to even the most casual observer how passionate he is about everything he gets involved with.

“You can walk out your door and grab vegetables, herbs and fruit for dinner,” Wright says. “There’s nothing like this anywhere.”

Because of both the elevation and south slope of the entire property, you’ll find a gorgeous view no matter where you purchase. The two-or-more-bedroom cottages will include stone fireplaces, high ceilings, sunny window seats, hardwood flooring, relaxing decks and covered porches. Srigley says that a family “can start with a cozy cottage and then over time, add studios or guest suites attached by breezeways, garages with lofts and potting sheds.”

A circa-1895 cottage has been lovingly preserved and, along with the community barn and gardens and a swimming pool, will become Seabright Farm’s gathering place, plus a venue to hold art shows for local artists, cooking demonstrations, musical performances, and of course, wine tastings!

Crossing the border saves you a small fortune for waterfront property.

Cottages on large ocean-view lots start at $399,000. Only 15 lots out of a total of 57 are being released this summer. For more information, visit www.seabrightfarmcottages.com or call 1-888-732-6915. A preview weekend will take place on June 29 to July 1, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and interested buyers are encouraged to pre-register online and call or email for an appointment time.
