Oak Bay //
Traditional Craftsman design brings modern living to this established neighbourhood and a former empty lot. This custom, six-bedroom, four-bath home maximizes an open floorplan perfect for both elegant entertaining and day-to-day family living.
10’ coffered ceilings and expansive windows add to the airy ambience as the entry flows seamlessly through the living room, dining room and kitchen to the easy-access deck and backyard. A warm coastal colour palette creates echoes the grey-stained wide-plank white oak engineered hardwood floors.
The elegant, traditional kitchen features painted full-height cabinets with crown moulding, crown valance and corbel details, “Linen” quartz counters and roomy island. Cabinetry panels disguise built-in dishwasher and fridge. Completing this traditionally styled kitchen are 8’ sliders to the entertainment-size deck, custom built-in desk and cabinetry, and walk-in pantry. Family-friendly laundry/mudroom works beautifully with outdoor access, seating and custom storage. Upstairs offers a vaulted master suite, walk-in closet and roomy ensuite, two large children’s bedrooms and bathroom. The 9’ downstairs features a large home office, TV room, two guest bedrooms, bath, storage and mechanical room.
Environmental considerations include hot water on-demand, high-efficiency heat pump/furnace, Eco-Bat insulation, Island-milled cedar shakes and fencing, easy-care irrigated landscaping, long-lasting composite decking and tree retention. Elaborate pump system accommodates ageing municipal drains, while roof hip disguises a flat roof addressing height restrictions. Comforts include illuminated soffits and gables, integrated audio system, built-in vacuum and dual-door detached garage allowing for drive-through parking – accessed from both the main driveway and laneway behind. Modern living with timeless design.
