A Lynn Road residence in Tofino has sold for $3.162 million.

The 9,600 sq. ft. luxury home marked the highest reported residential sale in Tofino’s history, besting the town’s former record of $2.3 million set by another Lynne Road residence earlier this year.

The home was listed by Engel & Volkers Nanaimo and the company’s vice-president Brian Danyliw is optimistic that more big sales are en route to Vancouver Island.

“It is not uncommon for higher-end homes to take more time to sell, but we seem to be having a good influx of international buyers that are shopping in the high end,” Danyliw said through a recent media release.

“With the strength of the US dollar, we expect to start seeing an influx of American buyers simply because of the incredible value of property here. Vancouver Island is safe, beautiful and has so much to offer.”
