Tucked away between Forest Lane and Royal Lane lies the Urban Reserve, a development full of energy-efficient homes, each with an exquisite architectural design. This neighborhood, situated between woodsy tree-lined trails, is a nature-lover’s paradise, blending a laid-back Pacific Northwest vibe with the convenience of modern, city-centric amenities.
Even among a slew of geometric, metal-roofed contemporary houses, 1 Vanguard Way stands out with its three stories and striking glass and metal façade.
Walk the concrete flooring along the ground level to find a koi pond, wine cellar, bonus living area, and two bedrooms, each with a full bath. Take the elevator or any of the multiple staircases to the nature-embracing second floor, where a sleek outdoor dining and cooking area, complete with a grill and wood-burning pizza oven, offers the perfect spot for entertaining guests poolside. Finally, explore the top-floor living area, with a view of White Rock Creek Trail that could almost make you forget you’re in the city.
We’re in love with every stunning detailing of this property, from the decorative lighting to the dark stone entryway. Our favorite feature, though, may be the floor-to-ceiling, Low-E window configuration, which brings the great outdoors to nearly every room of the house without compromising cool temps.
