1904 home in Oak Bay

Briarbrea, a magnificent turn of the century designated heritage home in Oak Bay, was originally designed by renowned architect Francis Rattenbury in 1904, before being added to in 1913 by Samuel Maclure.

A tremendously rewarding restoration to work on, our work on both upper and lower floors, stairs and landings, began with key repairs to the existing Red Oak and Fir floors.  We brought in new long length Fir wood flooring that was picked specifically for its close match to the existing floors, helping to preserve the original character and look to ensure a harmonious result. We provided dustless sanding to all the spaces and applied a high-traffic Waterbase Finish to the character floors, pairing existing old world charm with a modern touch.
