With mountains, ocean, and city life only steps from your door the North Shore is one of BC’s most popular areas to live. Our clients wanted a house that suited their traditional style while maintaining functionality at the core of its design.
Approaching the home it appears as a modest rancher, but the inside and backyard pack a real punch with classic colours and finishes that perfectly complement the space.
The designer and Kennedy team worked seamlessly to bring all the details to life exactly as the homeowners had envisioned.
Entering the home, the thoughtful layout and use of space is felt instantly, high ceilings and a multitude of windows draw you toward the living and dining-room, and the bright open plan accommodates plenty of natural light throughout.
Custom millwork and full-height kitchen cabinetry create ample storage and maximize the floor space. Also on the main floor are a home office, guest bedroom, powder room, laundry room, and master bedroom and ensuite.
On the rear of the house is a four season partially covered deck, equipped with not only a grill but infrared heating heaters to keep the chill off when the temperature starts to drop.
The basement maintains the airy feel of the main floor by continuing the high ceilings, bright walls, and smart use of windows. A third of the space is used for a dedicated media room complete with built-in speakers, with the remaining space for storage and an in-law suite.
Going above and beyond is what we give our clients: the house meets Energy Step Code 3; the property being in a fire hazard zone exceeds all safety regulations for wildfire management; it has a state-of-the-art security and monitoring system; there is a rainwater collection and distribution system; and there is a backup generator equipped to run on both natural gas and propane to ensure an instant and seamless transition of power in the event of an outage.
Being able to bring the owners’ dream home to life is why we love what we do!
