Window-Clad Vancouver Home is the Epitome of West Coast Living
Canada’s west coast draws countless people to it every year looking to live amongst some of the country’s most beautiful landscapes. So when a West Vancouver home that seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living comes on the market, it’s bound to catch a few eyes.
And the custom-built house at 545 Robin Hood Road does exactly that. It’s wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows with oversized glass doors that slide open to give unobstructed views of the mountains and greenery. The house was curated by Craig Chevalier Designs, with every design choice from the over-height ceilings to the many stonework accents making the property simultaneously feel open yet cozy.
“It is a true lifestyle residence,” listing agent Barry Herman told STOREYS.
As to be expected with a luxurious west coast mansion, this home is anything but short on space, totalling more than 7,300 sq. ft with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The main floor alone makes up more than 4,200 sq. ft of that, all spread across a single suspended concrete slab.
“The main floor is the most interesting feature as you can live on this floor and experience all your activities and amenities without having to go to the upper or lower floors if you choose,” Herman said. “This floor has most of the living space, the two home offices, the primary bedroom suite, workout space with double exposure and views, along with the three-car attached garage, and the covered heated patio with fire table.”
The amenities don’t end there, though. The West Vancouver house also has an art studio, heated floors, an in-ground pool, a built-in outdoor BBQ area, multiple al fresco dining areas, and even a trampoline area and sports court in the backyard. The house is also fully automated with a Control4 system.

And for those rare — but annoying — occasions that Vancouver gets some heavy snow and ice, the heated driveway melts away any potential shovelling chores.
The neighbourhood is perfect for homeowners looking to stay active, with Herman noting the home’s proximity to the Capilano Golf Club, Hollyburn Country Club, Cypress Mountain, and Grouse Mountain. There are also a number of great schools in the area, which would make it attractive to families.
The home has been on the market for just over a month now, but with all it has to offer, it wouldn’t be surprising if a buyer scoops it up soon.
