An architecture showcase in Vancouver was recently sold. The Vancouver Sun reports that the modern structure is 2,920 square feet and located at 4038 West 38th Avenue. Spending only 29 days on the market, the home was originally listed for $3,488,000 and sold for $3,240,000. The value of the property is assessed at $3,216,000. 
The luxury home is filled with sought-after features that many homeowners would find pleasing, according to the news source. Originally designed in 2007 by award-winning architect Alan Endall, it was built with steel beam construction. A substantial amount of travertine, basalt and concrete was used to create the home's open floor plan. 
Most of the primary living spaces are located on the first floor of the home, including a number of bedrooms like the master suite. The Vancouver Sun reports that this allows the homeowners to enjoy the views of the Japanese garden which is located to the north of the house and the water feature that is on the south side. This contemporary-styled home even features a glass wall that opens out to an outdoor terrace and entertainment-sized decks.
To provide the owners with complete comfort, the house has been outfitted with radiant floor heating. The eco-friendly solution is ideal for the space because it allows an individual to remain cozy inside, while looking out on the expansive views through a wall of windows. Combined with high-quality insulation and windows that feature a high R-value, the heating solution is incredibly efficient and will use less energy than other traditional utility options. As sustainability becomes increasingly important, radiant floor heating technology will provide a homeowner with a sense of comfort - in more ways than one.
