This beach house sits steps from a popular swimming beach in Gibsons. The location is exceptional within a skip to lower gibsons shops and life and neighbourhood beach. It is a short ride on the ferry to the city of your fix.
The original house was cut up in odd ways. So this surgery opened up the hallway from entry, to living space. This allowed for a more efficient and rational layout. Bedrooms face the street while all the main living spaces look out to the beach, islands, harbour, and sunsets.
The lower level was rationally reorganized and allows for a shop him .This also gave her a bright beautiful painting studio and gallery space.
The garage is right up tight to the street. The living spaces originally had a flat ceiling. These trusses were cut out and a vaulted hand cut roof was put in its place. Giving that open lofty feeling and to allow the south sun to stream in as far into the house as possible.
The open kitchen/dining/living room combination is perfect for entertaining and for traditional living. The ceiling is vaulted for an airy feel, to let in light deep into the house, and to capture the view to the ocean.
The kitchen layout is simple and efficient with enough counter space for two to work. The island allows for entertaining guests and breakfast dining. An end shelf leaves space for cookbooks and tea.
