Surya Durona

Streams of light pour through every room in Surya Durona, adding sparkle and warmth to a complementary palette of neutral tones, rich finishes and a balanced selection of high-quality materials and deluxe, yet liveable, spaces.

This stunning 5,300 square foot home is tucked away at the end of a private road in one of Victoria’s most desired and elite neighbourhoods where it overlooks the ocean and a beautiful natural landscape. An intricate series of rough stone rock walls curves up and away from the street, protecting the home and creating movement around its base.

The façade’s rectilinear masses are lightened and visually divided by a lower middle section where a balcony forms the portico roof. Arched entryways and a gentle radius roofline hint at the subtle use of curvature that punctuates the entire design. The cedar shake exterior connects the home to its natural environment, while black trim provides an immediate sense of traditional styling, reminiscent of the timeless beauty of Tudor.

Double-arched columns with “X” frame rails create privacy at the enclosed entryway. Strong detailing at the top of the columns and the base of the balcony proves no detail was left to whim. A grand entrance, marked by a solid wood door with beveled-edge glass sidelights, welcomes visitors inside where a perfectly layered collection of soft, but robust, finishes await the eye.
