Address: 4109 Burkehill Road, West Vancouver
The skinny: Five-bedroom, five-bathroom, 5,360-square-foot home in Vancouver
The chic: Built in 2015 and designed by award-winning duo Mathew McLeod and Lisa Bovell of McLeod Bovell Modern Houses, the 'G'day House'—featured on the cover of acclaimed design magazine Azure—definitely knows how to flaunt those cover model qualities. Situated on one of West Vancouver's most desirable streets, this stunning home with awe-inspiring views is only a stone's throw away from the best schools and coffee shops, as well as a recreation centre and the beloved seawall. The property was a custom home commissioned by an Australian ex-patriate family, which requested a place that would support a relaxed attitude toward daily life and help them re-connect with a warm-weather lifestyle. This home surely does that. Column-free sliding doors at the southeast corner of the house create an amazing indoor-outdoor space that is seamless, and doubles the size of the living area when open. (Not to mention, the abundance of light that fills the living area!) The simple and casual interior design gives the property a relaxed feel, evoking thoughts of beach houses, yet modern elements like the floating fireplace and sleek design offer a truly unique feel. The top level of the property flows as seamlessly as the bottom, with the primary bedroom boasting its very own terrace and private pool. On the bottom level of the property, you will find an additional two bedrooms/office space, a 'great room' with adjoining kitchen, laundry and utility room, as well as a walkout private deck/garden area.
The hidden extras: To support a variety of arrangements—and cater to both varying guest numbers and weather conditions, the rotating dining table and wood-burning fireplace are fun additions to this already fabulous home.
