French Country Urban Villa


4100 West 16th Avenue, Vancouver




Architecture, Landscape, Interior Design


This coherent, understated home located in the West Point Grey neighborhood quotes typical elements of the French Country style. The arched entry is symmetrically aligned with the ornate face gable and bay window, balanced by the tall chimney and central axis line organizing the windows with other architectural components.

Tall, multipaned windows, robust window trim and natural materials such as wood and richly textured stucco offer a refined appearance and a sense of timelessness.

New trees add vertical dimension and seasonal interest while an evergreen yew privacy hedge finishes the sightlines of the front yard. A patio designed for lounging around a fire element as well as a multi-trunk red Japanese Maple and mass planted roses soften views towards the laneway house in the back.
