Highlighting sweeping southerly views that take in Mount Baker in Washington State, downtown Vancouver’s skyline, and across the University of British Columbia’s peninsula to Vancouver Island beyond, the new development of Aston Hill has a view to a thrill in abundance.
Designed by British Pacific Properties, the 20-unit development — scheduled for completion in May – offers semi-detached properties with a three-bedroom floor plan, and a location in West Vancouver’s Whitby Estates neighbourhood. This has easy access to skiing and snowboarding (it’s at the base of Cypress Mountain), a future shopping village, and the esteemed Mulgrave and Collingwood private schools.
This particular home has a layout spanning three levels and boasts an elevator to each floor. The main level features engineered hardwood flooring set on cork underlay, and nine-foot ceiling heights allow for the large windows that maximize the amount of natural light in the home, and showcase those far-reaching scenes.
In prime position, the kitchen overlooks the adjoining family room where sliding glass doors open onto an entertainment-sized terrace. Horizontal grain rift-cut white oak cabinets with back-painted glass doors provide an elegant combination, alongside high-end integrated Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances. An adjoining pantry acts as wine storage with dedicated shelving for bottle racks as well as a built-in wine cooler.
The open-concept formal living/dining area is designed to take advantage of the views; its interior focal point is the linear floating gas fireplace.
Two of the three bedrooms are located on the top floor – each has an ensuite and a private terrace. The sumptuous master suite boasts a walk-in closet, a seating area and a lavish bathroom complete with a soaker tub and an oversize curbless shower, with Kohler, Blanco and Toto fixtures, and a double vanity.
Sheerweave roller shade window treatments throughout the home ensure the ambient temperature stays just right. Although with those views, why would you ever want to close them?
