A Custom Built Home on the Waterfront with a Modern West Coast Appeal
This custom built home — located on the oceanfront near Nanaimo on Vancouver Island — has a welcoming, modern West Coast appeal. The setting of this luxury home is complimented by a timeless, natural colour palette compliments the property, along with warm stained quarter sawn white oak floors, stair treads and cabinetry. Continuity of the timber accents through the exterior and interior of the residence creates a seamless transition between both spaces.


As the home is for a young family, environmental consciousness was a high priority, and a great consideration for their lifestyle was taken in the layout and home design. Energy draw is kept minimal with ample natural light flooding the home, and this custom build utilizes locally sourced stone, concrete features, and fire bowls. Double low-e windows, LED lighting, and low-flow fixtures are present throughout, and an air to air heat pump installed in six discrete zones. With living areas on the main level and main bedrooms located upstairs, the requirement for privacy is achieved for this family.
