    Property Details

    A RARE OPPORTUNITY to own a Richard Henriquez-designed Coast Modern retreat, overlooking the newly designated Howe Sound Biosphere Region on the desirable west side of Bowen Island. This extraordinary waterfront property showcases one of the most beautiful natural settings imaginable, blurring the line between nature and landscape. Old growth giant cedars surround this over half-acre waterfront property perched at the end of a quiet cul de sac. Enjoy a front row seat to year-round whale-watching, moody winter storms, and the most spectacular sunsets of the region.Believing an architect’s purpose is to create unique places in the world, Henriquez set out to do just that when he was commissioned to design this home built in 1978. Sensitive to the layered history of the region, and with a deep respect for the emotional resonance of the past, Enriquez designed Sonner House, honouring ancestral, familial, and historical presences. Winner of the RAIC Festival of Architecture Design Honour Award in 1980, this architectural gem resonates on an intense emotional level from the moment you walk through the door, and continues to tug at your senses once compelled to explore this exceptionally curated home. A dramatic roof top terrace culminates into a spiral pathway that seamlessly links all of the spaces of the house together—including 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a sauna.Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors bathe the home in natural light, creating an ethereal, open feel for a truly dramatic effect. This home has been thoughtfully renovated in phases throughout the last 20 years, maintaining the essence of the West Coast modern aesthetic while embracing a subtle Japanese influence. Stone mason extraordinaire, Tomatsu Tongu, installed beautiful stone stairs that blend the natural landscape of the home to the ocean with impeccable precision. In keeping with the famed architects’ intention, the home boasts bespoke custom millwork—designed by renowned furniture maker, Christian Woo—throughout. Revel in roaring wood fires round a majestic stone fireplace, which serves as a focal point, an anchor, and a gathering space in the sexy sunken living room overlooking exceptional ocean, island, and mountain views. Multiple minimalist decks offer sensational viewing points for a fantastic indoor/outdoor connection. True to Henriquez’s roots, the Emmy award-winning owners have been very considerate in every improvement made to the property, maintaining a deep respect for the land, the nature that inhabits it, the rich history of the island, and the original design intention. Bowen Island, known as “The Happy Isle”, is a mere 20-minute ferry ride from the City of Vancouver. Once you step foot on this magical island, a sense of inner peace instantly settles in. This exclusive listing is a rare opportunity to acquire a home awarded for its design excellence in a truly remarkable setting — the perfect retreat for design enthusiasts.
