Modern Saanich //

A contemporary take on split-level design, this custom three-bedroom, the four-bath home provides modern living at its finest. The creative design offers a unique, visually interesting exterior with five levels within a lower-profile 2 1/2 storeys. Vancouver Island stone detailing and illuminated soffits accent the acrylic stucco exterior. The great room design allows for easy living between kitchen, dining and living rooms.

Natural light floods the space with windows on all sides, complemented by potlights and pendant lighting over the large island. The entertaining-style kitchen features white uppers, glass backsplash and quartz counters for elegance without distracting from the views. A floor-to-ceiling Island stone fireplace and hearth include stone-inlaid wood storage, while wide-plank, white oak engineered hardwood extends throughout.

Designed to capture both nature and ocean views, ample low-E, efficient windows, 12-foot glass sliders, skylights, glass interior railings and a glass office wall allow light to shine throughout without impeding sightlines. Natural features continue in the master ensuite, where the rural setting allows a large window to flood the space with the natural light. Details include a stand-alone soaker tub, roomy shower, pebble detailing and floating vertical-grain double vanity topped with quartz counters and full-height mirror.

Outside, a large patio enjoys a natural setting with firepit. All rock blasted on the property was re-used for the driveway while removed trees were saved to be used by the homeowners. Additional features include a heat pump, hot water on demand, connected sound-system throughout.
