Presenting our NEW Modern 3 level home with Ocean views located in Ambleside, West Vancouver BC Canada. At 3800 sq. ft. the home has an open concept, a reverse plan with all the 'living' on the top floor with the best view. Step through the all glass front onto the deck, and you will feel like you are on top of the world (quote from a friend) and lounge by the fireplace with music wired and be inspired by the views of the beach, ocean, downtown to the south and Vancouver Island to the west and mountains to the north. There is indoor dining space as well as a 'den' space with gliding glass doors which doubles as office or an ensuited bedroom. The main space has extra high vaulted ceilings that add to the expansive space and view. The kitchen has an 11 foot long island which makes it easy to cook and serve right on the spot. The first level of the home has a fully loaded one bedroom suite with it own kitchen, living room, that can be kept open or closed to the main levels of the home. 4 Bedroom plus 1 office/den/bedroom, 5 Bathrooms. 2 car garage.
