With the fast-paced lifestyle of today, doesn’t your very own private setting sound like an appealing atmosphere to de-compress and regenerate at the end of every day? Set on an uncommon and magical country road on the edge of a forest sits a spectacular home completely rebuilt in 2019 in the heart of North Vancouver. Minutes to shops, restaurants, coffee houses and schools, this forest setting gives the illusion of being far more removed than you actually are. Take in the fresh air and the sounds of the birds, owls by night and bald eagles by day. Live in a sanctuary surrounded by old growth trees and delight in the sense of calm it brings.
From the exterior, the rebuild has successfully melded an Industrial meets Farmhouse style to this custom home. Understated in its simplicity with the white board and batten siding, the home exudes a unique character that is both understated and elegant all in one.
Step inside and be truly taken by the magic of the setting. Floor to ceiling windows, along with oversized skylights, set the stage for an inviting place to be. The design brings the forest setting inside, with a rustic elegance similar to the charm of its exterior. Vaulted ceilings in the great room give the main living space an expansive, airy quality. Light up the forest at night with some dramatic lighting and you will have what looks like a series of Ansel Adams photographs for your view both day and night.
Enjoy the grand kitchen that opens to the main living room, with its abundance of cabinetry, drawers, counterspace and a 10 foot long eat at island. With a kitchen eating nook reminiscent of a casual farmhouse setting, the two styles create the theme of understated elegance that flows from the great room into the spacious kitchen. Oversized pendant lights over the island, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and windows galore create a fabulous space in which to prepare dinner every night. Pour a glass of wine and revel in your good fortune of having this place to call your home.
Wide plank white oak flooring is carried throughout the home, achieving a beautiful sense of flow to both levels. Insulated between the two floors for soundproofing, as well as reinforcing the floor boards on the main and leveling the lower level, one notices the sturdy build and attention to detail not often found in homes these days. The quality of build here is undeniable. Always opting for longevity, durability and function this home is built to last the test of time. Solid core doors, exquisite lighting choices, stylish yet timeless tile detail, creates an impeccable design that has a sense of Scandinavian influence.
The lower level offers the ideal family room for kids of any age along w three bedrooms and a lovely full bathroom. With the master on the main, the floor plan creates some separation for the family members to have a degree of privacy when not enjoying each other’s company in the great room.
