Welcome to Riverview Chateau, a custom chalet-inspired home overlooking the Fraser River in Maple Ridge. The property is approached by a long driveway surrounded by greenery and 21 Japanese cherry trees. Low-profile HardieShingle siding in a natural finish appropriately reflects the home’s west coast setting.

This certified Built Green home was thoughtfully designed to meet the family’s needs and interests.; Spanning three levels, it provides beautiful and comfortable settings for both large get-togethers and quiet moments alone – all with stunning views to the landscaped yard and river below.

The living room’s grand stone fireplace soars up through the second level, met by wood beams and a vaulted ceiling. Throughout the home, design choices create a sense of warmth and comfort while also making a striking impression, with rustic industrial finishes meeting glam touches. Every detail is intentional and the choice of unique materials makes the home one of a kind.

A secret library, gym, movie theatre, office, art studio, pool, sauna, and nanny suite. High-performance features include high-efficiency windows, radiant heating, and heat pump, Energy Star-certified appliances, LED lighting, automatic blinds for temperature control, and a Control4 home automation system that controls lights, AV, seccurity, and HVAC.
