Sometimes we stop and think how lucky we are to be able to see the most beautiful proprieties the West Coast has to offer. Pacific Spirit Estate is definitely one of the most striking properties we have ever had the chance to photograph. his exquisite 0.7-acre ocean-view property overlooking English Bay and the North Shore mountains was conceived as something completely different - a contemporary home ideal for entertaining, yet also family oriented to cater for children. Garret Cord Werner Architects exceeded the owners' vision, taking a holistic approach to simultaneously integrate the architecture, landscape, and design. The property is constructed from two pavilion-like components connected by a central dining area, creating visual junctures designed for contemplation. One of the highlights of the garden, which features native plants and natural sculptural stone arrangements, is a waterfall that cascades into the koi pond at the entrance way to the home, where the floating staircase can be glimpsed rising to the second level. Simplicity reigns throughout, yet it is a warm, child-friendly, and wonderfully entertaining home - simply perfection. *property description taken from www.faithwilsongroup.com .
