So Close, Yet a World Away.
This sculptural masterpiece by renowned architect, Paul Grant, is featured extensively on the cover of design, build and luxury lifestyle magazines. The iconic structure features the artful, balanced juxtaposition of concrete and wood, improbable forms, and extensive glazing, resulting in a residence that complements the dense foliage of its surroundings, and creates a dynamic interplay between the indoor and outdoor environments.
1840 Lighthouse Lane is located at the Cape Roger Curtis Lighthouse, the official navigational landmark that represents the gateway between Metro Vancouver and the Howe Sound islands. The landscape here is dramatically scenic. From the warmth and comfort of this home, one witnesses and experiences every day the wonder of nature: the Pacific Ocean - sometimes tranquil, and sometimes humblingly raw and powerful; the glorious sunsets; the west coast rainforest; the vast variety of marine and terrestrial wildlife such as humpbacks, orcas, porpoises, sea lions, deer and eagles...
A truly enchanted life awaits.
The 10,000+ sf residence on the Pacific Ocean is surrounded by extensive patios, water features and courtyards landscaped with native species, and is set amidst a backdrop of acres of lush forest. It is ingeniously designed to be a warm home that is a healing retreat in the serenity of nature and the charming, idyllic, close-knit island community, as well as a most impressive hosting space for those endearing friends and family who hold significance in your life. The main floor welcomes you and your guests with a voluminous gallery foyer, generous living, dining and lounge areas, and a social kitchen. The lower level is the entertainment quarter, with a casual living room, media room, wine cellar, games space, and 2 guest bedrooms, connecting to an infinity pool overlooking the Howe Sound Islands and the sunset. The uppermost level is the private family quarter. All of the operating functions are thoughtfully connected yet discreetly segregated from the living areas: the professional kitchen and pantry, staff living quarters, and high capacity laundry, storage, mechanical and mud rooms.
Designed and built with extraordinary respect and care for the biodiversity of The Cape on Bowen, the residence applies state-of-the-art environmental systems such as geothermal and solar power, and rainwater recycling. A peaceful, seamlessly functional experience is integrated into your life by remote controlled security, blinds, lighting and music, so that all aspects that define "home" are ready to go, whether you are returning from a world adventure or from a productive and demanding day. There is even a back-up mechanical system.
This residence will provide an impenetrable sense of peace, joy and personal life mastery, no matter what is going on in the world outside.
