A rare opportunity to acquire both a luxury gated property and a fully professional recording studio in the most exclusive neighbourhood of South Surrey, British Columbia. The expansive property backs on to green space, and offers tree-lined privacy, peace, and nature in abundance.
The main house and coach house are achievements of art in and of themselves, over 6800 square feet of interior space with Whistler-inspired architecture continuing to an additional 3800 square feet of outdoor living, covered pool and decks. Owner-built to the highest standards, the main house and coach house seamlessly blend classical opulence with a playfully casual layout.
The main floor features a stunning chef’s kitchen which anchors the intimate open concept floor plan. All the expected amenities are on display including wide-plank walnut flooring, extensive custom millwork and arches, leathered granite countertops, vaulted ceilings, brick feature walls, natural limestone, and heart-free fir beams and posts located throughout the interior and exterior of the home. The home has two upstairs areas accessed by separate staircases. The Sleeping Quarters include an over-sized primary bedroom featuring a generous sized master ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. The two additional bedrooms both have ensuite bathrooms as well as walk-in closets. The secondary rear wing of the house includes a fourth multi-tiered bedroom with ensuite, a den, laundry facilities and a third-level loft accessed by a spiral staircase.
Double French doors throughout the home open to multiple decks, flowing to the beautifully manicured rear gardens and a stunning timbre structure which allows the pool and hot tub to be used year-round. The resort-like pool and hot tub is equipped with LED lighting, a built-in motorized safety cover, and a quaint brick outbuilding housing the pool equipment, which includes high-efficiency pool and spa heating systems.
The Coach House was built from the ground up to exacting standards for a world-class recording space, and will provide the new owner a multitude of living / work dynamic options. A beautiful sound-proofed design with vaulted ceilings, wood beams and brick walls, all adding up for outstanding room acoustics while recording music. Built to continue the legacy of one of Vancouver’s longest running and successful music studios, the owner is an internationally recognized producer with platinum success, and has a recording history and client list which reads like a “who’s who”, having recorded for artists such as Bryan Adams, Sarah MacLachlan, Michael Buble, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Loverboy, Paul Rodgers, and hundreds more.
The upper floor of the Coach House also features a fully functioning kitchen with dining area and three-piece bathroom, and the studio can easily convert to a living room and a separate office and/or an additional bedroom. The lower floor features another bedroom or recreation room, laundry facilities and a two-piece bathroom. The oversized 4-car tandem garage located below the studio can also serve the purpose as a sound stage for recording and video production, with audio tie-lines to the upstairs studio.
Other features unique to this home include an abundance of natural light from forty-three skylights, extensive climate control for heating, air conditioning and humidity with three individual heat-pump systems, a twenty-zone irrigation system which covers all grass and plantings (over 100 sprinkler heads), and a 1700 gallon underground storage tank that collects roof rainwater for irrigation use.
As a passion project for the owner built over many years, the property, Main House and Coach House have too many unique architectural features to mention here, and must be seen to fully appreciate!
