Hidden away, at the end of a quiet Belcarra road awaits a spectacular oceanfront escape. Designed by award winning Architect, Robert Bradbury, this stunning modern luxury residence sits on a tranquil oceanfront site between a wooded creek and spectacular BC coastal views.
Hesitate at the front door and listen to the sounds of birds, wind in the poplars and the soft rushing of the creek. Past the door and you are in a house that is elegant but comfortably scaled. It is intrinsically part of the landscape and as you turn each corner the view opens up and changes direction.
In signature Bradbury style, all the rooms open up to natural alight and capture different views.
The structural frame of the house is clean, bold and dramatic. Confidently contemporary.
Material pallet is visually soft with a profusion of warm wood and soft colour palette that adds to the relaxing feel of the home.
The concept of the house was to create spaces that were defined only by the dark wood floor and the walnut wood ceiling that floats above it – the walls dissolve as planes of light taupe paint and large expanses of glass. Oversized sliding doors push away and connect the interior to a generous patio that overlooks the water. The main living room captures views and light from both the ocean and the wooded creek.
The spacious open kitchen is the ideal place to entertain – just waiting for the merlot and charcuterie – it flows effortlessly into a seaside dining space with easy connections to the patio.
The kitchen is backed up with a spice/wok kitchen which provides some serious cooking capability with stainless steel sink and counter, high BTU burners, pot filler, and powerful CFM fan. This second kitchen space is ideal for entertaining as it provides additional pantry space and is a great staging area for catering larger events.
Dappled by filtered forest sunlight, the treads of the oiled walnut stair float up past a wall of glass to a spacious second floor. The glass railing of the stair wraps around a raindrop chandelier that falls like a waterfall in the dramatic double height space -truly “wow” factor.
The second floor has 3 bedrooms facing to the water and a fourth that faces back towards the creek and the forest. Each bedroom has its own ensuite and windows and decks abound! The master bedroom ensuite boasts a private ocean view and a fabulous shower with an impressive cloud burst shower for that “standing under a waterfall spa experience. Walk in closet and great views – of course!
Recline in the tub and soak in the sunset or retire to the study to catch up on some reading or get a jump on some work (incidentally, the adjacent deck that overlooks the creek seems like an excellent place for a cigar and a whiskey?) on a summer night slide open the doors a sleep with the breeze off the water.
All the main floor spaces flow out onto a generous patio which has an outdoor kitchen, firepit seating and a tiled hot tub. Steps lead down to the lawn and away to the private dock. Morning kayak trip?
The house is built to the latest Step Code (it’s energy smart) and boasts low maintenance exterior finishes, energy efficient appliances and superior windows and doors and a dramatic fireplace.
All this and more results in a solid investment with timeless style, exciting design and truly unique experience for the discerning owner that wants to experience true West Coast luxury beach house living.
