When you imagine your life, how do you want it to feel?

Now imagine being nestled between the lake and the mountains making the most of everyday Kootenay living, a place where timeless balance of beauty meets refined modernism.

The Daily Dose invites you to discover Front Street Flats,a limited collection of spacious 1,2 and 3 bedroom – 2 & 3 level stepped townhouses with beautiful rooftop garden patios, showcasing stunning views and prices starting at $418,800.

This stylish boutique development planned for Nelson is distinguished by earth tones, natural materials and generous outdoor living spaces, as the beauty of Elephant Mountain and the water capture your soul, creating the perfect backdrop for your new home.

With a focus on details from the onset, these custom built townhouses are the vision of the local husband and wife team of Matthew Fuhr and Jobina Mah of Fuhrious Construction, with architectural design by Allan MacLeod of Fairbank Architects.

All units feature open plan primary living spaces with 8’ ceilings, designed to maximize functional efficiency with clean lines and natural light, and the vertical organization of secondary spaces provides ample opportunity for privacy from cohabitants within each fully self-contained townhouse.

Along with other architectural elements meant to enhance and elevate site-specific considerations, Matthew and Jobina have taken a balanced and pragmatic approach to building and designing Front Street Flats with Allan. Their debut residential project in Nelson is smart, and well planned with the building stepping down the slope site, articulating the unique identity of each unit, while preserving the viewscape of the neighbouring residences to the South and East.  

As the site continues it’s slopes down from its Park Street access, affording even more expansive views of the natural world, the sights downriver from the living roofs will be particularly exhilarating. Their talented team also pays special attention to style, which is reminiscent of a chic West Coast Kitsilano feel, but uniquely Kootenay celebrating and capturing the lifestyle and recreation of our region.

At Front Street Flats, not only will residents be able to enjoy the sweeping lake & mountain views to the west from the privacy of their own individual outdoor living space, but they will have the luxury do so on 200SF roof top patios with 200SF green roof/gardens.

Another aspect that makes the placement of these homes so exciting is the site is right in the heart of Nelson, and the location gives residents the advantage of being only steps away from access to all urban conveniences and necessities. Namely, Nelson District Community Centre, Lakeside Park along the waterfront of Kootenay Lake, Kootenay Co-op (Community-Owned Grocery & Cafe), including many other various small boutiques, cafes and restaurants, situated in the vibrant downtown core of Baker Street.

With units ranging from 1,138 sq.ft. to 1,735 sq.ft. of living space, there’s plenty of room to experience your perfect lifestyle living at Front Street Flats. And when it comes to your comfort, theinterior spaces are curated and designed by talented Principal Interior Designer Randall Boisvert of Covet Interiors, and are influenced by the natural surroundings of the forest, mountains, lakes and beaches.

It’s as though the architecture has emerged out of nature itself. The spaces invite the abundance of natural light indoors through the large windows, which highlight an open concept on the main levels, and the clean, relaxing, and simplistic touch of the interior features and finishing create an elegant and timeless effect.

There are two curated interior colour palettes to choose from, influenced by the natural surroundings of the Nelson region – Lake (light) and Mountain (dark) 

The Lake palette is
bright, airy, and understated with a comforting sense relatable to lounging outdoors. The Lake inspired colour story is a fresh take on the soft, organic colours drawn from our treasured beaches. The finishes are a balance between simplicity and warmth, reminiscent of our beloved summer days.

The Mountain palette is warm, cozy, and lush and drawn from the changes in season. The Mountain inspired colour story complements the stunning colour variation within our mountain ranges as it showcases the use of rich, natural, organic textures throughout the thoughtfully paired finishes.

Moving to the outside, the exterior materiality display monochromatic hues of greys, whites, and charcoal, with textured elements of Hardie plank complimenting the organic elements of the green roof space, further enhancing the serenity and balanced environment of its surroundings, including Native, drought resistant landscaping.
