537 Laidley Street
Sense of Place
Once in a very long while, a home comes to market possessed of a poised, natural design confidence, gentle strength and articulating its livability and useful beauty in both robust and subtle ways.
Set on an iconic sun washed Glen Park street famous for inventive architecture, just steps from the bustling village and Canyon, Light Bridge House is one of these homes.
With masterful volumes, anchored in beautiful materials, artisanal detailing and exquisite workmanship, the home’s signature feature, a bridge linking the home to the street, and a majestic interior bridge engaging the light across soaring interiors, functional living spaces and the outdoors.
An impressive kitchen serves many masters: chef, family life, guests and celebrations. No amenity or detail is missing from the exceptional space. A floating ceiling of specially milled, reclaimed Douglas Fir boards anchors the space from above. A massive island invites collaboration and the beautifully articulated pantries can accommodate all needs. This impressive kitchen is connected to a deck spanning the east face of the building and overlooking a professionally landscaped yard and patio.
Connection to Nature
The home creates an airy enclosure for the decks, patio and garden. Indoor/outdoor living and entertaining are a hallmark of this home.
The classic and sought after layout includes a massive floating stair of reclaimed Douglas Fir, robust 3 bedroom upper floor, spectacular master with water views and dramatic light bridge across the main foyer. Luxe, elegant modern baths include the finest details and finishes.
The lower level has an additional bedroom suite with private patio, expansive family room and wet bar open to the modern landscape and huge functional laundry room, powder room, storage and mechanical areas.
Sustainability by Design
Ultimately, Light Bridge House makes a clear connection to a life lived with deliberate respect for nature and a celebration of art and beauty. Thoughtfully planned on 3 levels, the home creates a lively dialogue between daily life and entertaining friends and family. Sustainability is imbedded in the radiant heating, LED lighting, high tech windows and doors and strategic re-use of building materials.
