Architecture Wednesday: The Pender Harbour House .... But First

We are headed off for California to visit my sister--she's undergoing chemo for her cancer--and having a mini-family reunion-slash-wedding reception for my niece Brigitte, who just got married.

I have some things planned, and some things re-planned, but I won't be back in the blog-o-sphere for about a week or so.

Play nice, have fun.

Bob and Carlos

And now .... Pender Harbor House ... and No, this is not where we're going. Damndamndamn!

The Pender Harbour House in, where else, Pender Harbour, British Columbia, Canada, sits on a rocky lakeside, surrounded by a lush forest, but teeming on the inside with luxury and comfort and stunning views.
The house sits on 21 acres with over a 1,000 feet of natural shoreline and offers total privacy and seclusion. The masterful architecture and luxury building materials make this a world-class living experience. 
Exposed architectural reinforced concrete walls are combined with Pennsylvania Blue Stone floors and Douglas Fir beams inside to create a delicate warmth to host an over 6,600 sq.ft main residence with 6 fully en-suited bedrooms. Each bedroom enjoys total privacy, 180-degree breathtaking views and its own access outdoors. 
The grounds also host a 630 sq.ft boat house guest suite and a 1,240 sq.ft. self contained caretaker’s residence. Each of these spaces were mindfully designed to embrace the natural beauty surrounding this extraordinary property.
The open plan kitchen, living and dining room extend outside through bi-fold doors to meld the indoor/outdoor ambience with a heated patio, fire pit and in ground hot tub at water’s edge. 
The exterior finish includes a mix of zinc and planted green roof with harvested cedar siding and stone veneer walls, carefully considered to blend with the West Coast environment and its spectacular elements. 
A sensational home with top of the line technical details: Crestron Smart Home, Geothermal heating and cooling and private water supply mark today’s standards.
And it’s for sale for just $20,000,000.

Only $20 million? Will they take a personal check? Let me talk to Oprah.

Not bad and only 20 acres? A friend once owned a property with 40 acres. So I know the rough size of the land.

Of course said friend lost that in the divorce. Ah well.

IF that's a small stream running through the house on the 8th picture on the left then I wonder if they keep fish in the house, lol ! I can see them swimming down the shoot, into the Fountain in the Den and carried back up to the 2nd floor through a windmill.
