Timeless Elegance - Design & Build
Built in 2017, this 7000 sf home is nestled in one of Vancouver’s most lush neighbourhoods filled with mature gardens, trees and foliage. The house itself is situated on a 75X143 lot allowing to maintain a beautiful size backyard that includes a pool, grassy areas and gorgeous concrete pool deck with built-in exterior kitchen. The front elevation includes sky gardens and a large oversized limestone clad wall that runs throughout the main axis of the home. The interiors are a combination of walnut wood elements, stone, tile and concrete clad on the fireplaces. The floating steel staircase with walnut treads greets you upon entry and is accentuated by the adjacent stone wall that carries through all 3 levels of the center of the home. The kitchen design is modern and functional. The center wall of the kitchen is clad in its entirety in matching grain walnut panels with integrated appliances, hidden storage and powder room door to feel like one large walnut central massing. The atrium lighting was carefully selected to fill the voids between levels with an interesting shadowing pattern on the walls and stairs offering texture and layering. Attention to detail is noticeable throughout and every wall and corner designed to maximize the story of the home.
