Waterfront Contemporary

As the winding drive opens to the property the pleasing contemporary lines, use of natural wood and stone and subtle colour palette makes the large house feel very comfortable in its surroundings. The hardscaping encircles large old cedars, and the landscaping emphasizes native plantings.

In designing this spectacular home local architect, Neil Morie, optimized the siting to take full advantage of the 180 degree sea views. From every floor to ceiling window, the ocean and sky provide a striking backdrop to the crisp lines of the home’s architecture.

Soaring wood-clad ceilings in the light-bathed living and dining rooms are balanced by the full-height stone fireplace wall. Oak flooring in a warm neutral shade and sleek, elegant furnishings contribute to the airy feeling. A built-in bar area, below the second floor balcony, provides practical storage as well as visual interest.

Separated from the greatroom by a short hallway, the kitchen is every chef’s dream with Wolf appliances, perfectly book-matched teak cabinetry and white granite countertops. The island eating bar, along with the breakfast area, easily accommodates family and friends. A separate pantry, with matching cabinetry, provides ample storage.

A further office/bedroom with ensuite and laundry room round out the main floor.

A statement chandelier highlights the dramatic floating staircase while decoration on the upper floor is intentionally restrained. The ocean and forest views are visible from every vantage point, in addition to a lookout over the great room. The master bedroom features a granite-clad Rumford fireplace, white marble ensuite with jetted soaker tub, substantial walk-in closet and a private deck. Two additional bedrooms and shared bathroom complete the upstairs floor plan.

The garage, with epoxy floors, a full wall of top-grade cabinetry and two laminated glass and metal garage doors is a very functional work of art. Outside patio areas, clad in oversized Aristokrat pavers, offer the family plenty of space for bbq’ing and entertaining with outstanding ocean views.

This exceptional property is a tribute to artistic vision, abundant natural materials and a dedicated team of skilled craftspeople that will stand the test of time, and see wonderful times enjoyed with family and friends.
