Mount Pleasant Modern | Single Family Home

An exceptional four bedroom primary residence.

Averra Developments proudly completed this 3,000 square-foot contemporary new home built for a young, active family of five in the heart of Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood in 2019.


It has a dramatic modern aesthetic with black cladding, flat roof with the second storey cantilevering over the entry.


The exterior of this home has dark vertical cedar wood siding with some feature areas which are natural wood strapping to enhance and complement its innate setting in the Pacific Northwest.


Inside this home there are three well laid out and functional floors of amazing living space.  In addition, there is a rooftop deck boasting an outdoor lounge area, hot tub and unobstructed views of the spectacular North Shore Mountains.


The lower level of this property is very practical, yet decadent for urban Vancouver city living.


Off the street, there is beautiful thoughtful landscaping with irrigation, a driveway, parking pad and attached single-car garage.


Inside the lower level of this home the family has a walk-in laundry room, mechanical room, bathroom, large home office and lots of storage.


This lower level is actively used and is below grade, so a locally manufactured technology from Nudura was used to enhance this home. ICFs were sourced and skillfully installed to build the foundation and basement.  Some of the core benefits of this choice include:  increased energy efficiency, dry warmth as it is sub-grade, reduced sound transmission and is a fire retardant.


The main floor gets ample natural light that enhances the beautiful custom millwork, sleek Caesarstone countertops, brushed white oak hardwood floors, gas fireplace, integrated appliances and open floor plan that is luxurious and encourages maximum usage of all the common spaces.


The focal point of the main floor is the impressive open concept great room, dining area, kitchen and working nook.  This grand space seamlessly flows into the back patio and yard through large format multi-slide glass sliders from Westeck Windows & Doors another local manufacturer.  In addition, this floor was smartly laid out to also provide an enclosed lounge space, powder room and entry storage.


The upper floor gives each of the three children their own private bedroom and a large bathroom to share.  Parents have a spectacular north facing principle bedroom, walk in closet and en-suite bathroom with deep soak tub, rain shower and views to the north and west for mountains and sunsets.
