Designed for an active young family this contemporary design West Coast embraces its environment with a low-profile and natural materials, including cedar board and shake accents, soffit lighting and easy-care landscaping.
The custom front door opens to a light-filled, two-storey entry, with open-concept main beyond and unique oak-and-glass floating staircase leading to bedrooms upstairs. Expansive windows and skylights welcome natural light and views. Warm tones showcase millwork throughout, including live-edge sliding walnut door, bench seating, floating shelves and cabinetry, fir ceiling and stained beams, complemented by heated, terrazzo-finished concrete floors and fireplace with concrete-look ceramic tile and surround.
Kitchen features a contemporary mix of polished white, and horizontal grain walnut cabinets and custom range hood, panel-front fridge/freezer, butler’s pantry and large island. West Coast coffered ceiling with skylights highlights dining area and opens directly to covered patio.
Master features large windows, beams overhead and wide plank white oak underfoot, and an inspired ensuite with walnut vanity, quartz counter, contemporary fixtures, technology-driven shower, separate toilet closet and soaker tub.
Indoor-outdoor living is easy with protected barbecue area and covered concrete patio, with lighting, speakers and gas fireplace for cozy four-season enjoyment, circular paver patio and firepit, and easy-care recreation areas including children’s play structure echoing the home’s roofline, and putting green.
Challenging sloped site required significant soil movement, drainage and retaining walls to create family-friendly yard. Efficient details include in-floor radiant heat, high-efficiency heat pumps with heat recovery, Low-E windows with solar shield and Smart Home wiring.
