PROPERTY INFORMATION

This is a rare opportunity to become the next custodian of Arthur Erickson's famous concrete and glass masterpiece - The Eppich House. This iconic residence has been featured in magazines worldwide, and deemed one of the most historically important examples of West Coast Modern architecture built in the past quarter century. 

Situated on a unique 1.12-acre garden estate in Ambleside, this magnificent home was designed and constructed as the ultimate private retreat. With a recent multi-million dollar renovation by Battersby Howat architects, the Eppich house maintains all its original West Coast Modern intent but is now completely restored to a level expected in brand-new luxury construction.

Erickson masterfully designed a quiet and understated street-level entry for the house, but as you venture further into the property, the full structure is revealed as four levels of expansive indoor/outdoor living space that cascade down to a tranquil reflecting pond at the ground level. From every window and balcony there is a breathtaking view of the mature gardens with massive rhododendrons, elegant azaleas, fruit trees, and sun-drenched vegetable gardens terraced in Corten steel.  

Enjoy entertaining in all-seasons from the outdoor heated and covered dining area, adjacent to the beautiful negative-edge swimming pool. Enter Erickson’s interior and experience a perfect complement to the exterior with bush-hammered concrete contrasting the warm fir ceilings throughout. Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass embody true West Coast Modernism where nature and architecture are intertwined.

Step down the signature suspended concrete staircase into the large main floor entertainment area and experience a living and dining room warmed by a woodburning fireplace and plush wool carpeting. The newly renovated state-of-the art kitchen is an entertainer’s dream, with extensive elm, Corian and stainless steel millwork, and featuring Gagganeau and sub zero appliances. 

The house was conceived as the perfect family dwelling with 4 generous bedrooms with their own balconies, including a serene master with a steam-shower ensuite looking out on the shimmering reflection pond. In addition, the home features a private office/study, a new theatre room, a gymnasium and ample flex and storage areas, all within approximately 5,000 sq. ft of ideal living space.  

This distinctive residence is ideally located only minutes to the Lion’s Gate Bridge and both Ambleside and Dundarave Villages’ amenities. Exquisitely designed and now updated, Erikson’s Eppich House is simply one of West Vancouver's most historically important and impressive estates.
