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 recently 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 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 outside and enjoying a west coast lifestyle.  They completed their design around those goals. Firstly, the overall footprint for this home was kept at a minimum. In addition, they sought to include only space/items that were necessary and hoped to limit maintenance and operating costs.  Most importantly, they also wanted clean, simple, west coast modern lines.

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.” So, we chose a site conducive to less clearing.  This custom home is 1236 square feet on each of the two levels, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. 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.

The exterior of the home was painted a colour (with matching window trim) meant to blend in with the landscape and not bring attention to the home.  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, and sliding glass doors to bring in natural light. Further, upper and under cabinet lighting was installed in the kitchen, 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.
