Streams of light pour through every room in this stunning custom residence, adding sparkle and warmth to a complementary palette of neutral tones, rich finishes and a balanced selection of high-quality materials and deluxe, yet liveable, spaces….
Built by award-winning Abstract Developments, the luxurious home boasts exceptional quality in every aspect of its design, construction, and finishing, with the gorgeous interior detailing coordinated by noted Victoria designer, Sandy Nygaard.
This spectacular 5300 square foot home is tucked away at the end of a private road in one of Victoria’s most desired and elite neighbourhoods, ‘The Uplands’, where it overlooks the ocean and a beautiful natural landscape. An intricate series of rough stone rock walls curves up and away from the street, protecting the home and creating movement around its base.
The façade’s rectilinear masses are lightened and visually divided by a lower middle section where a balcony forms the portico roof. Arched entryways and a gentle radius roofline hint at the subtle use of curvature that punctuates the entire design.
A grand entrance, marked by a solid wood door with beveled-edge glass sidelights, welcomes visitors inside where a perfectly layered collection of soft, but robust, finishes await the eye.
