Tucked into the area originally referred to as the Capilano Estate – now British Properties – 23B Glenmore Drive is your opportunity to get in on a coveted West Vancouver neighbourhood.
The renowned architects behind New York City’s Central Park are the same designers behind this 1,000-acre expansive land; owning a piece of infrastructural art has never been more simple. This newly-listed home is the perfect place for those who appreciate architectural design at its finest.
Nothing short of exquisite, every facet and detail within the British Properties community is meticulously considered. For example, Stanley F. Thomson, one of North America’s premier golf course architects, was responsible for the Capilano Golf Course – which has become a crown jewel in the area.
As for the home itself, the property’s exterior boasts a meticulously thought-out design, taking into account a variety of details that typically go unnoticed. From the paint color and roof shape through to the building materials, driveway, patio, and garden, luxury has never felt so personalized as it does here.
The brand-new 6-bed, 6-bath home captures contemporary style by reflecting the best of 21st century architecture – combining farmhouse and mid-century modern vibes, the property serves as a testament to the aesthetics a la mode.
The gorgeous open-concept interior was designed to allow for constant flow of natural light through the main floor, creating an airy feel to the main room. Via vaulted ceilings, modern details, sleek white finishes, and a mixture of textiles, attention to detail is showcased in every corner. And, the modern built-in fireplace doesn’t only emit heat, but doubles as a gorgeous focal point within the space.
The great room leads directly into the chef’s kitchen, which features Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances plus a walk-in pantry. Indeed, this distinctive environment is an oasis for those who enjoy cooking. A large home office, dining area, and gorgeous sliding doors – which lead directly to a covered patio – also coalesce in this area of the house.
Heading upstairs to the first four bedrooms while daylight pours through the windows? That’s sure to be a pleasant experience, offering a sense of gilded comfort en route to your private retreat. The primary bedroom features a spa-like bathroom and massive walk-in closet, while the other three beds on the upper level also come complete with ensuites for added privacy. Each bedroom is distinct in its own regard, however, the consistency of large windows in every room contribute to the warm essence of this home.

From the angles of those high vaulted ceilings which showcase the property’s unique structure, through to the effortless chef’s kitchen and large covered patio area, it goes without saying this family home was built to support the chicest and most comfortable daily rhythms. It’s no wonder the British Properties are so adored.
This home’s address is nothing short of endearing, while remaining totally functional – only a minute away by foot are Collingwood School and the entrance to Capilano Trail. Talk about convenience: imagine dropping the kids off while barely missing a beat on your early morning walk.
Perhaps the city's best-kept secret, this quaint neighborhood is the perfect place to raise a family – it’s where convenience and luxury harmoniously coexist.
