West Coast Contemporary Opulence

It's hard to believe that this was once a 1950's decaying and sinking Beach House - its reinvention is nothing short of opulent.

The exterior immediately awes. All three levels have been restructured into an outdoor functional dwelling space. Here, the clients can relax or entertain; what a spectacular setting for a dinner party. The deck area are a sun-bather's dream, as are the pampering hot tub and the outdoor shower that’s great for a quick rinse after a morning dip in the sea.

Leading in from the main deck is the appropriately named "Great Room"; a unique open area that encompasses a kitchen, bar and dining area, cozy fireplace parlour, and swanky media center.

It is a visionary living and recreational space, incorporating state of the art technology, energy efficiency and green standards melded with local artistry that seamlessly blends into the natural beauty of the beach front. More than simply a Tsawwassen beach house, it is a retreat getaway destination, and no surprise - a national award winner.
