Sleek and sexy mid-century modern home offering a truly sensational panoramic view ranging from the city of Vancouver to Vancouver Island. Taken down to the studs in 2011, this residence has been thoughtfully and meticulously remodeled and features an open floor plan with abundant natural light and exceptional indoor / outdoor flow. A showcase of 1960’s architecture, this home has been dramatically improved for today’s modern living, featuring 21st century comforts and contemporary simplicity while maintaining the charm and aesthetics of its vintage roots. The interior space is equally ideal for those who love to entertain and those who are seeking a private oasis. The spacious great room is an entertainer’s dream, featuring spectacular views, direct access to the huge pool and patio area through commercial grade sliding glass doors; comfortable enough to host a party for 100 guests, or a cozy night for 2 by the fireplace. The gorgeous eat-in kitchen features custom cabinets, quartz-style countertops, top of the line Wolfe and SubZero appliances and an enormous center island with breakfast bar, that opens to the Great Room. The dining room provides a unique architectural setting, with floor to ceiling (12 foot) glass looking out over the pool. The spacious and bright master bedroom features a large walk-in closet with custom shelving, and a gorgeous en-suite with walk-in shower, his and her vanities, and private lanai. There are two additional large bedrooms, a four-piece bathroom with a beautiful, modern soaker tub, ample closet space, and a private den adjacent the kitchen. The ground floor offers a media / recreation room, laundry room, and a large storage room adjacent the two car carport. Situated in the heart of the family-friendly neighborhood Bayridge, this tremendous home falls within the West Bay Elementary and Rockridge Secondary School catchments, both top ranked schools. Charming Caulfeild Village is just around the corner, while Downtown Vancouver is only a 15 min drive away. This unique property provides the desirable combination of architectural pedigree, modern upgrades, a safe and peaceful community environment and a highly desirable location.
