3190 Travers Avenue, West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V7V 1G3
The setting is unlike any other and while homes along West Vancouver’s Marine Drive rarely come on the market, when they do, you’d better be expecting to pay a hefty price. Architect Brian Hemingway custom designed this unique 8,800 square foot residence to gracefully fit within the confines of the long narrow 0.39 acre lot while taking in spectacular ocean views. This master crafted home features solid 12″ x 12″ Douglas fir timbered posts and beams, geothermal heating, extensive granite stone detail and a zinc roof. The bright open plan includes multiple entertaining areas with water views, an open kitchen, numerous skylights, an office, gym and five bedrooms and six full bathrooms. The property enjoys 70-feet of oceanfront and includes granite patios, a heated jet pool, jacuzzi and fire pit overlooking the ocean. The home was featured in the September 2005 issue of Home and Architectural Trends where architect Brian Hemingway said, “In a sense, the entire house is like a giant Japanese lantern. At night, with the curtains pulled back, the fretwork of the window systems and the structural beams cast a lattice of shadow and light – a providing a welcoming sight from its surroundings.” We found an old listing on West Vancouver real agent Jason Soprovich’s website touting the property as being the “Most Spectacular Home on Pacific North-West”. Based on the information given, it seems the property was somewhat unfinished at the time and awaiting a buyer to come in to choose their own personal finishings. It sold for close to $6,800,000. Now finished and awaiting a new buyer, it’s on the market for $23,888,000 with Majid Rohani.
