I have sold a property at 3516 Richmond RD in VICTORIA.
Designed by John di Castri, Victoria’s famous “Trend House” was one of 11 homes built across Canada to showcase Canadian wood. This unique home exemplifies the west coast interpretation of the Modern movement, combining the height of contemporary architectural technology with traditional B.C. building materials. Innovation is seen in the diamond form roof trusses, the polygonal floor plan, and huge plate glass windows in hemlock wood framing. Both practical and a work of art, this compact home lives big in a small footprint. The central focal point is the spacious living room with its massive stone fireplace, capped by a unique copper hood. A built-in bookcase blends in while hiding a pop up TV. The kitchen has been carefully updated, including custom millwork and quartz counters. Step outside and enjoy the great privacy, low maintenance 1/4-acre lot with plenty of flowering bushes, and West facing valley views. A true gem for mid-century modern enthusiasts.
