MODERN HOMES BY ALBRIGHTON
For 2014 we have sold some beautiful modern houses, along with a few project homes that will go through amazing transformations. Through our marketing efforts and international exposure we have been able to reach out to more buyers than ever before. Our fantastic clients have referred to many new buyers of unique homes, and as usual we have also sourced many new clients through our powerful websites including, www.albrighton.ca. Owners of these unique properties have also found us based upon our portfolio and for offering upscale marketing and a our large network of design savvy clients and industry contacts.
This year we were very fortunate to work with world class architectural properties designed by renowned architects and designers including Christopher Boyzk, LWPAC, Henry + Glegg Residential Design, and Arthur Erickson. Most importantly we are grateful to our clients who present their homes to their best and who appreciate design and quality construction. Below is a list of our 2014 modern home sales.
At Albrighton Real Estate we believe “good architecture never expires”.
2014 Modern Homes Sales:
West Vancouver Contemporary House
Custom built home designed by Christopher Boyzk of Christopher Boyzk Architects. This home was originally designed as Boyzk's personal residence, as a result the build quality was fantastic and the dramatic architecture has a timeless fresh feel nestled in the woods and on the cliffside in the Altamont area of West Vancouver. This inspiring contemporary design was designed 23 years ago and still feels ultra modern and in-line with current design trends. Many one-of-kind architectural details are found within this home including: square edges in all rooms, a curved glass walkway on the upper floor (shown in the photo above), double height windows in the main living areas, and cantilevered balconies coming out of the main living areas connecting the dweller to the outdoors and nearby trees.
