A World Class Contemporary! Regarded as a classic modern home - timeless in its style and character. This stunning residence has been exquisitely designed by its award winning architect/owner who also built the house to ensure that his exacting standards were achieved. Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a sunfilled 1/3 acre property in Rockridge, the home is extremely private and is a sanctuary away from the city. Nestled among boulders and rock outcrops and surrounded by towering Douglas Firs, the design builds on the legacy of a West Coast modernist style and overlooks spectacular ocean and city views. In fact, every room in the home enjoys a bright southern exposure and stunning views of English Bay and beyond. Even the ‘basement’ has floor-to-ceiling windows and an amazing view.
This handsome residence offers a comfortable and casual layout with a warm ambience, providing the ultimate in elegance, yet built with state-of-the-art reinforced concrete, steel and an innovative Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) structure, so remarkably strong and both fire and earthquake resistant, that it is also used for high-rise building construction. The roof is the best commercial grade roofing available with deep overhangs to shelter the interior. This home is decades ahead in the quality of its construction and built to last.
The exterior facade is low maintenance with highly durable zinc and aluminum panels with commercial grade aluminum anodized windows. Massive pivot doors and heavy duty sliding glass doors open the home to three large patios and roof decks - perfect for entertaining! A simple, open plan for living, enhanced by walls of glass, plush carpeting and polished white concrete flooring provides both a feeling of casual comfort and intimate elegance. Custom built-in cabinetry and millwork of African hardwood is used throughout the house.
Enter the main floor through a signature-designed front door to a gracious two-storey foyer leading to a large double height living room with contemporary fireplace and an intimate formal dining room looking into your private forest. The custom kitchen is a dream for entertaining with a centre island, gorgeous appliances and one of the most amazing views that you will ever see in a kitchen.
Beautifully appointed, the upper level offers 3 bright bedrooms, all with ensuites, including a sensational master with spa-like ensuite - all opening out to a private sundrenched terrace. The lower level offers a recreation/media room, utility room and lots of storage, but could be a potential 2 more guest bedrooms. Versatile! Approximately 5,002 sq.ft. of luxurious living for any discerning purchaser! Quite simply - breathtaking!
