4890 The Dale, Olde Caulfeild, West Vancouver

Escape from the riot of urban life to this glorious natural oasis in West Vancouver’s lower Caulfeild. Filled with stunning natural features and light, this is a very private and level 22,651 sq ft, park-like retreat. Gorgeous mature specimen trees, old growth fir trees, and rock formations are complemented by beautifully designed sun, shade, and rock gardens. You will experience the tranquility and loveliness of the gardens on the wettest, most blustery of winter days from the bright warm garden room. Views of the over half acre grounds make the already large and welcoming central living space feel huge. Every room of this very cozy and livable 3000 sq ft solid Mid Century Modern home maintains the strong visual connection to the natural world to inspire and sustain you.

The expansive 31’ wide master bedroom is filled with light, with French doors to a long balcony overlooking the gardens. This room could be easily divided to create a fourth bedroom or a luxurious spa bathroom. The second bedroom feels like being inside a ship floating through the treetops. The huge third bedroom, study, or studio has windows with views of nature on three sides, ready to inspire creation of any kind. There is plenty of room for everyone to play in the family room and basement workshop.

Comfortable and livable today, the classic post and beam architecture of this house would support transformation by your dreams in your own time. The sturdy midcentury construction features amazing 2.5 inch thick fir ceiling boards throughout. This is a very rare property that has both preserved the natural history of West Vancouver in the landscape and has also visually and physically incorporated it into the residence. Find your respite in this beautiful, peaceful, & exceptional haven.
