The sheer expanse of Canada and the abundant natural beauty of the country means it is an ideal place for a log home. This large wooden house is located in central British Columbia in a nature-rich area with no neighbors for miles around. The home was constructed by Pioneer Log Homes of BC, with an exceptional location overlooking gorgeous Williams Lake.
Prosperity Ridge is a post and beam log home constructed in a ranch style. The house is built using beautiful Western Red Cedar logs, which have a distinct reddish-brown color and a tight, straight grain, giving each post and each beam their very own individual character. Shall we take the tour for a closer look?
Prosperity Ridge was designed to maximize on the location. Perched upon the top of a ridge, the house has an amazing panorama encompassing the surrounding woodlands and the lake, which is captured from numerous indoor and outdoor sitting areas.
As we approach the house, we can see how the western red cedar logs create a robust and rustic appearance.
As we enter the home, we get a closer look at the detailing in the posts and beams. The subtle nuances in the wood create attractive individual features no matter which direction you glance. The cozy sitting area is heated by a wood-burning stove which is set in a commanding stone fireplace.
Taking a closer look, we can see how the natural grain of the wood creates a truly unique log home experience. The main living area has an open floor plan encompassing the sitting area, dining room, and kitchen.
The dining room is positioned at the lakeside of the house. The large picture windows allow for 180-degree views of the water, creating a spectacular backdrop to mealtimes.
The large kitchen features two islands, one of which serves as a breakfast bar. The dark stain on the cabinetry gives the room a timeless, classic style which is elegant and will never be dated by fashion trends.
The ground-floor master bedroom is a cozy sleeping chamber, heated by a traditional fire with a stone surround. The room has the indoors/outdoors flow which is a consistent theme throughout the house, with glass doors leading to the garden.
Taking a look at another bedroom, we can see how these spacious quarters are perfectly finished with attractive antique furniture. The high ceiling with rustic-style chandelier gives a sense of the grandeur on offer in this palatial wooden home.
The master bathroom perfectly combines wood and stone to great effect. The large walk-in shower, whirlpool bathtub, and high-end vanity unit are in keep with the overall quality of finishes in the house.
A second bathroom features a custom-built stone shower and a gorgeous sink unit carved out of wood. Nice touch!
Prosperity Ridge has a peaceful family room in the loft area: perfect for those relaxing evening watching a movie with family or friends.
Stepping outside, we discover some of the sitting areas designed to maximize the stunning lakefront views. This south-facing porch overlooks the lake, with a clever central table/fire pit.
Looking back on this terrace, we see how the commanding over-sized roof creates a spectacularly impressive sight.
The large, well-manicured lawn offers plenty of space for the children to run and play, while the surrounding concrete deck area means outdoor sitting space is not limited to just a deck.
Prosperity Ridge represents the pinnacle of log home design. It is a home we can all agree on, even if it will only ever be a dream for the majority of us!
