Ain't it grand? On show, we have a 1200-square-foot (111.5-square-meter - yes, on the larger side) unit that can comfortably accommodate up to four people. The classic exteriors are endowed with a bit of character through its geometrically distinct windows.
Sliding doors beckon us to relish a tactfully composed dining space.
Further ahead, a pristine living area with delicate decorative touches welcomes us as we immerse ourselves in the waterfront vistas.
The clean lines of the demure wooden counters in the kitchen nurture the simple elegance exuded by the open-plan living room.
Sleek appliances bring a touch of modernity to this minimalist area.
Wall art adds a bit of homeliness to the Arbutus Mist's stylish bathroom.
As we go up the stairs, we are met with a whimsical flair of existential temperament in the form of a discreet art piece. "Why," they ask us? We say: "why not?"
And this where we reach the lush bedroom, finely composed with a queen-size bed and deftly adorned with panoramic views of the serene scenery.

Elegant furnishings aside, in the Arbutus Mist it's the wooden finish that makes a memorable mark on all visitors. You will find in the cabinetry, counters, and all over the walls, as it pleasantly bestows a smooth texture to this slick and spacious abode.
