Georgia Park Heights Custom Home

Georgia Park Heights Custom Home is a “West Coast Modern” style home that was built in Crofton, BC. This home won a major award for Best Custom Home in the 2021 Provincial Georgie Awards competition under the name “Crofton Heights.” This home has also been featured in three magazines, including on the cover of Westcoast Homes & Design.

When designing this home, our clients were eager to downsize and simplify their life. They wanted to emphasize being outdoors and enjoying a west coast lifestyle. In addition, they hoped to limit maintenance and operating costs.  They wanted clean, simple, west coast modern lines. Made to Last helped to design their home around those goals.

The lot is a sloped acreage on the banks of Maple Mountain, looking down on the Cowichan Valley town of Crofton as well as the Salish Sea.  It was a forested site.  The clients were eager to maintain as many trees as possible, and build a house “in the trees.” Therefore, we chose a site conducive to less clearing.

Home Design

The Georgia Park Heights Custom Home is 1,236 square feet on each of the two levels, amounting to 2,472 sq.ft. total.  This home has two bathrooms and could function as a three bedroom home. The master bedroom and ensuite of this home are located in the walk-out basement, leaving the main floor for an open-concept kitchen, living area, and dining area.  There is also an extra room on the main level that serves as a quiet retreat for one of the homeowners, and acts as a guest room when needed.

The exterior of the home was painted a colour meant to blend in with the landscape and not bring attention to the home. The roofing, window frames, and downspouts were given a matching colour that blends well. There are a few pops of colour from the wood details, which connect with the forested site.

The most noteworthy feature of this Crofton custom home is the abundance of light. The home is filled with many windows and includes skylights to bring in natural light. There are also large sliding glass doors on the lower floor.  Further, cabinet lighting was installed in the kitchen and ensuite, in addition to pot lights and pendant lights. The result is a bright, airy home that is perfect for this Crofton location. Additional design elements such as wood floors and a wooden breakfast bar complete the “West Coast” style of this Georgia Park Heights Custom Home.
