Set against a forested backdrop, this home presents a distinctly resort-style outlook on life. Boulders from the site itself are transformed into an eye-catching retaining wall, a chimney made of river rock echoes the many creeks and streams criss-crossing the neighbourhood, and indigenous shrubbery interspersed with brightly colors flowers add visual texture and depth. The roofline, with its multiple pitches and gables, reflects the site's mountainous topography as if the entire home had sprung organically from the earth itself.
This home is all about melding comfort, welcome, and casual elegance. There's a sense of meticulous balance here – visually substantial columns offset by steeply gabled rooflines, the compact precision of formal flower beds enhancing the laidback, "kick off your shoes and stay for a chat" design of a covered, wrap-around porch. Draped effortlessly from a window box, ivy adds a dash of natural greenery to the overall blue and ivory color palette.
