Ah, Lions Bay. That almost fictional community between Vancouver and Squamish that offers incredible sights and some seriously nice homes. And, we’ve found a unique home for sale here that offers the best of both worlds! Let’s check it out.
Perched high up in the community, this home hides some serious design behind a relatively unassuming facade. Originally built in 1977, the home has been extensively renovated, and now offers a contemporary living space filled with both modern and time-honoured touches.
Maybe the most impressive is the Shou Sugi Ban exterior, which is a Japanese style of treating wood by charring it, and adding resiliency to the exterior. Plus, it comes with a fun, dark look, that we’re sure would make Samuel Beckett feel right at home.
Luckily, the interior offers serious contrast. Lighter finishes and furnishings dominate here, with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms inside the 3,439 square feet of living space. So while getting to school might be a little bit of a hassle, it could work very well for a (well-to-do, mind you) family to enjoy.
There are a few bonus spaces to enjoy here as well, though. The home features a gym to work out in, a library to curl up with a book, and both a hot tub and a Swedish sauna to unwind in. And since you’re just an hour away from Whistler, we have a feeling those will be getting a ton of use.
While the home doesn’t come cheap, the $3,700,00 price tag is a relative bargain considering the views and the general quality of the home. After all, what does that get us in Vancouver? Like a starter home in Mount Pleasant? No thank you, if we’re spending the rest of our lives paying off a mortgage, we might as well enjoy where we’re at.
