When we came to see this building lot, we loved the openness, the farm-feel and upper floor view potential that we saw here! Our clients had asked for a farmhouse vibe and a traditional exterior with a more contemporary interior. They also expressed interest in a space large enough outside for the kids (and dad) to play street hockey. This lot in North Saanich was the ideal space to create a home that encapsulated the needs and desires of the family. It was a fairly level lot with just enough slope to elevate them off the street level and accommodate a view from the upper bedrooms.

The main entry is a welcoming expanse of windows that transfers a glorious amount of light into the living areas of the home. From the foyer all the way into the kitchen, the windows bring a luminous glow, add depth and show the character of the home – revealing details of the home like the wood-plank ceiling and multiple French exit doors that lead to the front entertaining patio. From the kitchen you can walk through a pantry that is connected to a mudroom and laundry space, which leads to the garage door – making grocery delivery a breeze. The entry stairs bring you to an upper gallery where there is a bird’s eye view as you walk to one of the three upper bedrooms, or head to the recreation room over the garage for gametime.

All in all, the street appeal is fantastic, and the inside atmosphere is one of warmth and comfort. This is a home that could be both elegant and tidy or relaxed and ‘lived in’. Where do you want to live? We can help with that!
