THE FILBERG HOUSE in Comox (not the Filberg Lodge) was designed by famed architect Arthur Erickson and has a spectacular view from atop Goose Spit.

It has a panoramic waterfront view spanning from Powell River to the Comox Glacier, a 10-car garage and a house designed by renowned architect Arthur Erickson.

And it could be yours for just under $3 million.

The property, known as the Filberg House, is now being sold by Comox Valley realtor Dave Procter.

“The house was designed for an escape, to slow down to a tranquil pace, for thinking minds,” explained Procter, who took over the sale and marketing of the property about two months ago.

Originally built for the son of logging tycoon Robert Filberg, the house has been called one of Erickson’s greatest designs. The Vancouver-born architect has created building across the world, including the Canadian Embassy in Washington, the Kuwait Oil Sector Complex in Kuwait City and the Academic Quadrangle at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby.

Located at the end of Moore Road, with an expansive balcony stretching atop Goose Spit, Procter said, “Erickson once said this is the most spectacular locations in Canada.”

It was hailed as the “most fabulous house” in the country by Canadian Homes magazine in 1961.

It has also been featured in Canadian Architect, The New York Times and House & Home magazine.

Although the house features a modest two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the nearly eight-acre lot also hosts a two-bedroom guest house and a 1,850 square feet garage/helicopter hanger.

Procter added although he is using social media to market the property to an international market, he believes the potential buyer could be close by.

“We’re using unique advertising. I feel more than likely the buyer might be from B.C.,” he said, and noted he has already had one interested buyer visit the house from Vancouver by boat.
