French Country Estate
1600 Angus Drive, Vancouver
Architecture, Landscape, Interior Design
This generational family home in Shaughnessy quotes architectural elements of French Country estates like the hipped roof, double chimneys, stone wall façades, and the use of natural materials. The symmetry of the tall, rectangular windows, and the precise wood detailing give this renovation a rustic and timeless elegance.
The most striking element of this estate is the Mediterranean blue pool with infinity edge, spilling into a lower wading pool, finished by a fireplace lounge with pool house. Framed by Italian cypress trees and summer flowering planting, this estate quotes aspects of old French country gardens. Tumbled travertine pavers are installed in a 45-degree angle around the pool along with concrete bands, which overlay all hardscape elements.
