We’re traveling to British Columbia, Canada for this week’s Beach House Tour. The home is located on Saltspring Island of the Gulf Islands in the Strait of Georgia between mainland British Columbia, Canada and Vancouver Island. The home elegantly mixes Cape Cod with French Provincial style plus a touch of the Middle East thrown in too!
The 3,800-square-foot home, which is just 30 feet wide, sits steps from the the Crofton-Vesuvius ferry terminal on Saltspring Island. The owners’ vision was to create a French provincial beach house with elements of Cape Cod. Narrow French doors and side windows give the family room a European flavour. Raw cotton drapes were bought off “the back of a camel” in Uganda. The spacious master bath has a boathouse ceiling under the engineered truss ceiling.

“We wanted it to have a seaside feel, but be in a more European fashion,” said Andrea.
