An Escape To The French Countryside
Maison de Lee by Jenny Martin. Located in Victoria’s quaint South Oak Bay neighbourhood, this beautiful custom home effortlessly transports you to the French Countryside. Home to a growing family of 4, it was designed to pay tribute to classical French architecture, blending traditional style with modern luxury. Working closely with renown builder, M. Knight Construction, and award-winning home designer, Zebra Group, this fairytale vision came to life.
Aiming to incorporate traditional elements with an aged vintage quality, this project integrates detailed mouldings, rustic white-oak beams and soft arches, pairing them with unlacquered brass and natural marble specifically selected to age gracefully over time. The aesthetic was elevated with a restrained palette of natural tones.
For a family with a passion for the French culinary experience, a thoughtfully structured kitchen was integral to the design. The custom LaCanche Range was instrumental in creating a focal point, while side-by-side gas ovens were used to heighten functionality. Beautifully integrating honed marble countertops, a feature hood fan and open stacked shelving, Maison de Lee skillfully captures the authenticity of a traditional French bistro.
Recently awarded 7 care awards, including the coveted title of Project of the Year, project Maison de Lee resulted in a stunning marriage of styles, creating a traditional home that sets the stage for stories to be written within its walls.
