Islands View

Our clients purchased the original home in the early 1990’s as a vacation home with the long term intent to renovate as a full time residence. The property, located on Gabriola Island is south facing with spectacular views of Pylades Channel, Valdez, Mudge, Decourcey and Link islands. The original home was built in the early 1970’s as a Mid Century Modern builder’s special. This style of home was very popular in North America during the ’60’s and 70’s. Characterized by the open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and lots of windows to allow for abundant natural light. In particular, clerestory windows and the low sloped roof are trademark design characteristics of the Mid Century Modern home. Read more about this authentic renovation on our blog.
