Architect - Raffaele Funaro who graduated from the Milano University with Honours in Architecture in 1966 had many years to master his craft. This was his last great Italian Masterpiece work of art in this lifetime. He was a few short months away to see the final completion of his work. He left us in August of 2017. Like Art, the value of his work has gone up in value. This one of a kind Italian Villa Estate home located in West Vancouver BC Canada has become his last great legacy.
On the lower slopes of Hollyburn Mountain, between the Capilano River Valley and Horseshoe Bay, is one of Canada’s most picturesque residential communities, West Vancouver. Bordered by Burrard Inlet to the south and Howe Sound to the west, West Van incorporates the villages of Ambleside, Dundarave, Caulfeild, and Horseshoe Bay. Along picturesque Marine Drive, on the way to Horseshoe Bay, you’ll find Lighthouse Park and its 75 hectares (185 acres) of majestic forest including towering Douglas Fir. The park’s extensive network of trails can take you out to the 1874 lighthouse – Canada’s oldest manned lighthouse – and along the rugged coastline where seals can be found basking on the rocks below. An equally impressive road will take you up to Cypress Mountain. Horseshoe Bay is the western most community in West Vancouver and it’s also the departure point for ferries to Bowen Island, Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.
