Check out this uber-chic waterfront home, listed at $12.88M (PHOTOS)

Ultra-luxe concrete-and-glass home has Mid-Century Modern feel but is brand new and never lived in

Now’s your chance to have a (virtual) look inside one of those gorgeous waterfront West Vancouver homes that you can only see from the ferry.

This super-cool Modernist-style house, located right on the water next to Whytecliffe Park, was listed on the MLS on Monday (November 19). At $12.88 million, it’s the region’s third-priciest new listing this week – and, we think, the most breathtaking.

Although the concrete-and-glass home, built into the oceanfront bluff, has a mid-century feel, it is brand new and never lived in. It was designed by award-winning Vancouver design firm McLeod Bovell, which specializes in ultra-modern houses on sloping sites.

The 6,600-square-foot home has a contemporary U-shaped design with a central glass corridor and a 1,300-square-foot covered courtyard with firepit for indoor-outdoor living. There’s also a spectacular pool and hot tub with ocean views stretching across to Snug Cove on Bowen Island. The property is extremely private – aside from those ogling eyes from the passing B.C. Ferries, of course.

The two-storey home has a huge great room combining living, dining and kitchen, as well as a generous family/recreation room. There are six bedrooms and six bathrooms, including a one-bedroom separate guest suite built on the cliffside.
