Maurer House offered for sale — liveable, modern beauty in Naramata, BC. Indoor-outdoor living and a home awash in natural light.
Award-winning, modern architecture complements wine country surroundings
Located in the heart of the Naramata Bench, Maurer House was built in 2003 by owner/architect Florian Maurer. The house has been recognized as an outstanding achievement in design and construction with four awards including the Governor General’s Medal for Architecture in 2006. The home is surrounded with mature, natural landscaping and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Okanagan Lake. With great care, the home was built as an extension of the ridge, with careful consideration to site lines, building materials and construction processes. The home is currently fitted for and under consideration for a net zero certification, a much sought-after energy neutral accreditation.
Four buildings wrapped around a courtyard create a very private home with spectacular views
In the last decade, much has been written about ‘modern’ — modern finishes, modern living, and modern design. Maurer House offers an authentic interpretation of the North American modernist movement (which includes notable architects Ron Thom and Arthur Erickson) with clear and equal regard for livability, sustainability and local ecology.
Maurer House is approximately 1,640 square feet, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and is built in the ‘Roman’ style — in a ‘C’ shape around a courtyard — a thoughtful approach intended to capitalize on the remarkable natural surroundings. It is airy, bright and inspiring. As a result, the home belies its modest footprint, offering private spaces and movement that encourages family life and work life, individual expression and communal experience.
