Location: Rupert Road, Qualicum Beach B.C., Canada
A true showpiece of capability, the Rupert Rd. Project was 100% conceived, designed, and built by the owners of Zelkova Design Construction.
Entering the gates and approaching the property and house one cannot help but feel as though they have been whisked away to a classic French or Italian style villa. The landscaping and exterior highlight a resort-like getaway with no detail spared in material choice and finishing. The roof line is punctuated by the classic villa tower and a covered porte-cochere attaching the main building to a full suite for guests, servants, or renters which is nestled above a second 2-car garage on the property.
Entering the front doors one's visual appeals are met by a custom marble pebbled mosaic flooring, a barrel-vaulted ceiling with sky motif, and opening into a courtyard directly across the front entrance.
Turning left, leads into the south wing of the house where the master suite is found. At 16'x20' the master bedroom has a double-sided fireplace visible from both outside and inside with seating areas on both sides through double french doors. The walk-in closet is a a spacious 8’x15’.
The en-suite has all the amenities to be expected with luxury including a bidet, toilet, his and hers showers, his and hers sinks, with the main shower having 13 shower heads music and controlled lighting, French doors to patio area. Adjoining the master suite is a 15'x20' den/office space with separate entrance highlighted by imported wrought-iron forged doors. Also to be found in this wing of the house is the stairway leading to the basement where the walk-in 15'x15' wine cellar and state of-the-art home theatre system can be found.
The North wing, or right side, of the house, features the Main Living Room, Dining area, Kitchen, Laundry, 2 Bedrooms, and the Main Garage.
