An architect and a LA talent manager restored this North Vancouver ranch home – designed by Bob Lewis to embrace its forested surrounds in the Pacific North West.
The 1958 home was commissioned by the Wick family and built by the Lewis Construction Company, one of the most prolific firms on the post-war Pacific coast. LCC constructed hundreds of post-and-beam properties across Vancouver, but today, many of these houses have been razed or redeveloped and are unrecognisable from his originals.
Rancher House in North Vancouver retains its original spirit, thanks in large part to the efforts of its current owners. They completed a decade-long restoration of the five-bedroom home in late 2021, polishing and preserving its midcentury features.
This is evident in the family living room, where walnut wall panels wrap the space. Timber beams are painted overhead, while a vintage Cado shelving system hangs at one end of the family room, with a wall of glass offering views of the gardens and trees beyond.
Trent Rodney of West Coast Modern is marketing the midcentury property for under CAD$2.5m. Preview it in the gallery above.
