A Custom Nanoose Bay, Vancouver Island Waterfront Luxury Home Design

Located in the idyllic community of Nanoose, drive and walking throughways curl around the base of Elangeni like waves against a shoreline and create the appearance of a structure at home in nature – precisely what the homeowners were looking for.

Three equivalently pitched roofs are connected by a flat section where the peaked great room roof pops up, appearing to float above a series of perimeter transom windows and creating a view to the water from the front drive and a lantern effect at night. The entry is snug and protected between the outer wings, yet maintains a grand scale announcement with an oversized fir door and generous clear sidelights that welcome the eye to the ocean. Inside, the palette – neutral in greys and white tones, but warm and sophisticated with splashes of colour and deep exposed beam accent’s – is the perfect inspiration for celebrating nature’s beauty as a backdrop. Fir casings and trim on the windows frame the view and a soft grey tint in the wall paint ties in subtly with the concrete and rock materials that weave throughout the design. The kitchen is a stylish, sleek space with grey painted maple veneer cabinets and marble – patterned quartz countertops. It welcomes a hint of shine from stainless appliances and narrow porcelain backsplash tiles.
