check out the listing on the realtor’s website and a short blurb on the house :

2883 point grey road: a modern architectural achievement on the coveted “golden mile.”
recently completed by the talented measured architecture and developed by reputable keystone projects ltd., this world-class home – playfully named the “beach house” – represents an opportunity seldom seen on this, the most exclusive of vancouver’s streets.
spanning a generous 5,346 square feet over an expansive open-plan interior and comprised of four bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a four-vehicle heated attached garage (a rarity on this road), this elegantly understated residence offers all the features one would expect from a property of this caliber, and perhaps more.
mesmerizing, direct waterfront views – focusing on the pacific ocean and north shore mountains – take centre stage and are thoroughly enjoyed from practically every vantage point. the views are only enhanced by the dramatic, over-height ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glazing.
the home embraces its north and south exposures with its abundance of windows and integrated floor-to-ceiling opening system, as well as its automated, generously proportioned skylights. combined, these features maximize airflow and create a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living.
covered viewing decks and artful landscaping on the property – including a corten foundation wall by the notable paul sangha landscape architects – contribute to the home’s appeal and overall sense of serenity and living.
the land provides 45 feet of width and just over 219 feet of depth, practically reaching the water’s edge. arguably, one of the most advantaged lots on the road.
compelling design features include concrete flooring, a concrete fireplace hearth, whitewashed oak cabinetry, western red cedar cladding (extending inside and out), and metal exterior cladding, all of which combine to create a modern and timeless palate.
the generously proportioned open plan kitchen will inspire chefs and novices alike. finished with whitewashed oak cabinetry, composite counter surfaces, a large island, a walk-in pantry, and equipped with wolf, sub zero, and miele, the only distraction to mastering meals will be the compelling and everchanging water views.
the primary bedroom provides a wonderful and private retreat with its spa-style bathroom, designated dressing and wardrobe areas, adjoining gym, direct access to landscaped grounds, outdoor shower, and of course, the beachfront.
other notable advancements include control4 automation, lutron lighting system, built-in audio, sonos outdoor speakers and subwoofers, a gas fire-pit, in-floor radiant heating, air-conditioning, ev charging allocation, readied for backup power generator that works with solar panels and a battery pack, 400 amp electrical panel, and precision landscaping with lighting and irrigation.
rarely does such an offering become available – a privilege reserved for those who demand the best.
