West Vancouver's Finest, Waterfront Luxury Estate, located in the exclusive neighbourhood of Altamont. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, the organic architectural design was brought to life by both renowned architect, Paul Grant & the visionary owner, who is a pioneer of the clean power technology industry.
Designed from the inside out, every detail, including the materials, furniture, art & process flows was preconceived & incorporated into the design to create functionality & beauty. Seamlessly integrating the outside to the inside, you are drawn in by iconic Pennsylvania Bluestone finish set against glass, brick, zinc, concrete & edge-grain wood. One of the enduring qualities of Park Lane is the use of concrete all the way from the basement to the roof.
At the entrance, the ceiling extends upwards to a soaring entry, where carefully considered angles send your gaze to the ocean as the gradual decline of stairs delivers you to the main level & living room. Natural light dances from all directions through floor to ceiling glass windows, framed by edge-grain old Fir, offering unobstructed views of the Burrard Inlet.
The gated estate exudes privacy, being hidden from street view on half an acre with easy access to 98 ft. of pristine west coast shoreline. This coveted l& was formerly part of an apple orchard owned by Vancouver's notable Woodward family.
Park Lane honours both its land & surroundings. All of the elements at times, both subtly & dramatically, are incorporated throughout the home. Each room has been meticulously designed to create a specific atmosphere. Within the home, its gardens & courtyards, you will find spaces of reflection & solitude, places for entertainment & spaces to relax & simply inhabit. The minimalist landscaping respects the land & compliments the home.
Waterfront living is a different type of lifestyle. It is one where you are completely immersed with ever-changing views of the ocean & the sky constantly captivating your senses. Being protected in a Zen-like atmosphere is what you feel in this home when you first arrive through its gates & it is a feeling that endures.
Tiered levels from the street to the water add ever-changing perspectives throughout the residence while infinity pools set against the home create an impression of being directly at the water’s edge.
Using a fully constructed concrete foundation; solid, 3 ft. wide walls with water-proofing & air space, clad in Pennsylvania Bluestone & brick, create significant thermal mass, & frame the home’s interiors to provide stability. The geothermal heating & cooling system provides low emission heating & cooling for the home. A special V-shaped alignment of the zinc roof enables rainwater collection which is used in all exterior landscaping.
Distinctive bedroom spaces all feature captivating ocean views, including a large master with a walkout terrace & a separated dressing room & ensuite. The north wing of the home is accessed over a walkway that minimizes the view of the four-car garage below from the street & leads to a private, fully equipped guest accommodation with a separate entrance, kitchenette & laundry.
Although the main level of the home has an open concept, the angles & placement of walls & objects as well as the sound-absorbing wood ceilings & walls, create individual tranquil spaces for entertaining, cooking, dining, relaxing & gathering. The materials & construction of Park Lane surpasses the highest requirements including earthquake specifications & was intended to create a lasting, architectural masterpiece that is as functional as it is impressive
