Sooke Hills

The feel is casual elegance and the design is west coast modern with a strong emphasis on natural materials – especially in the timberwork that was milled from Douglas fir taken from the property itself. Large, handcrafted windows take in the gorgeous valley views on this remote, hilly site. Distinctive eight-foot fir doors open on to Brazilian cherry floors. The in-floor radiant heat is geothermal, sourced from the property’s commercial trout ponds – a highlight of the landscaping. The many tech features of the home belie the fact that this is a comfortable, five-bedroom family home.
