Wallmark Showcase Homes: A Home That Captures Light & Imagination

Wallmark Modern Custom HomeWallmark Modern Custom Home VancouverThe third installation in our Wallmark Showcase Homes series features a modern stucco custom home. Have you ever walked into a house and left feeling like you just saw something really special? We feel that way about this custom home we built in Vancouver. Tucked into the original landscape on the property, we created this modern gem of a home that not only captures the imagination, it captures light as well! As passionate as we are about green building, we love finding ways to improve the quality of life for our homeowners by taking utmost advantage of natural resources such as daylight. This home is the ultimate in natural lighting with multiple windows and outdoor balconies that alleviate the dependence on artificial lighting as well as encouraging the homeowners to spend time outdoors taking advantage of the many views!

The color palette is soothing and compliments the modern furnishings and decor. Light golden hardwood floors can be found throughout the main level and emphasize the openness of the floorplan. The layout of the main level encourages seamless flow of traffic throughout the most used living areas in the home. Custom maple shaker cabinets line the walls of the airy gourmet kitchen. Dark granite counter tops and the porcelain tile backsplash accentuate the stainless steel appliances and colorful pendant light fixtures. A walk in pantry and eat-in breakfast bar add to the lifestyle convenience features of the kitchen area. The main living area has a cozy fireplace with a built in tv to keep the lines of the room clean and uncluttered. The freestanding staircase to the second level is an architectural focal point overlooking the great room with open slats and aluminum accents that add to the unique interior of this home. Bedrooms are located the second level including a fully appointed master suite. Serene colors, vaulted ceilings and french doors to a private balcony take advantage of natural light and a large soaker tub provides the perfect retreat for unwinding after a long day.
