Balaclava Modern Farmhouse Southlands Estate - Vancouver, BC, Canada
  • Name: Southlands Vancouver Estate
  • Type: Modern Contemporary
  • Built: 2017

The Balaclava Modern Farmhouse is tucked away in Southlands, a truly unique urban country neighborhood known for its rural farmland, equestrian club, and multimillion dollar mansions.  Situated on 1.1 acres of prime property, this majestic rural oasis is just a short 20-minute drive to the heart of Vancouver’s downtown.

This spectacular modern farmhouse luxury remodel features 25 feet of folding doors to integrate to its exterior. Outdoor furniture by Kettal and Royal Bottania include a 20-foot pavilion for dining al fresco and three separate outdoor seating areas all with custom fire pits and large umbrellas for sun and rain protection. A new Boffi kitchen complemented by Miele, Wolf and Sub Zero appliances. Shower surrounds in the washrooms include waterproof art panels by Alex Terco Designs.

Originally designed in the French Country style, the team at Hodgson Design Associates

carefully designed a full modern renovation for this spectacular Balaclava Modern Farmhouse, complete with contemporary amenities and features. Murray-Sims Construction was tasked with completely stripping the original finishes both inside and out and converted the home to a modern design. The result is a sensational and fresh take on modern urban farmhouse luxury living with a neutral, but dramatic, and simple, but sophisticated residence.
