The residences feature warm, earthy tones that create a sense of relaxation and tranquility. The use of wood, stone and bamboo in the design adds to the atmosphere of refined luxury.

West Coast Modern, Vancouver’s premier real estate agency specializing in design-led architectural homes, recently listed Arthur Erickson’s Montiverdi House #8 for sale. Situated in the sought-after Caulfeild neighbourhood of West Vancouver, this ground-oriented home offers a rare opportunity for buyers to own a piece of Montiverdi Estates, a distinctive residential park designed by the late renowned architect Arthur Erickson. With its unique integration into the natural surroundings and landscape architecture by the late Cornelia Oberlander, Montiverdi House #8 is a rare architectural gem in British Columbia.


Montiverdi Estates: A Residential Playground Within Nature

Montiverdi Estates, conceived by Arthur Erickson, exemplifies a harmonious blend of architecture and nature. The 1979 innovative residential development in West Vancouver comprises 20 homes that seamlessly merge with the natural setting. Each residence is modelled after Erickson’s iconic Smith House and features a green roof, reminiscent of Erickson’s design for the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver. Cornelia Oberlander, celebrated for her contributions to landscape architecture, oversaw the neighbourhood’s landscaping, ensuring that a wildflower meadow was preserved at the community’s heart and maintaining the park-like ambiance without defined property lines.


Montiverdi House #8: A Rare Ground-Oriented Home

Even among the distinguished residences within Montiverdi Estates, Montiverdi House #8 stands out as a unique offering. Unlike the other homes perched on timber stilts along the mountainside, this 2,010-square-foot property boasts a level parcel, granting convenient access to the outdoors from all major living areas. The residence sits on an expansive 8,210-square-foot lot, featuring a sizable yard specially designed to accommodate a swimming pool, if desired. Its exceptional design and prime location make the home an exquisite choice for discerning buyers seeking both architectural excellence and a serene living environment.


The Legacies of Arthur Erickson and Cornelia Oberlander

Arthur Erickson (1924–2009), a renowned Canadian architect, left an indelible mark on the architectural landscape from Eastern Canada to his native West Coast. Erickson’s ability to blend function with aesthetic sensitivity garnered widespread recognition. Erickson’s notable works include Simon Fraser University, Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto and the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C. Montiverdi Estates is a luxurious “hometown” addition to the Vancouver native’s illustrious portfolio. Throughout his career, Arthur Erickson demonstrated a commitment to pushing architectural boundaries, creating spaces that harmonized with their environments while embracing innovative design concepts. His architectural achievements continue to inspire and shape the field, leaving a lasting legacy in Canada and beyond.


Cornelia Hahn Oberlander (1921–2021), one of the first women to receive a degree in landscape architecture from Harvard, played a pivotal role in shaping the outdoor spaces of the Montiverdi Estates. Born in Germany, she escaped the Nazis with her mother and sister by fleeing to England, the US and finally settling in Canada. Her namesake firm, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander Landscape Architects, was founded in 1953, when she moved to Vancouver. Her landscape designs have adorned prominent locations such as the Vancouver Public Library, the National Gallery of Canada and the atrium of the New York Times Building. Additionally, she conceived the idea of the natural log seating found on Vancouver’s beaches. Oberlander’s collaboration with Erickson cultivated a symbiotic relationship between architecture and nature.

Opportunity Knocks: Prospective Buyers Welcome

As the first ground-oriented home to hit the market in over a decade within Montiverdi Estates, Montiverdi House #8 is a rare and sought-after opportunity for homebuyers. With its rich architectural heritage, stunning design and connection to nature, Montiverdi House #8 offers a truly exceptional living experience.


The house is listed by West Coast Modern, Vancouver’s premier real estate agency specializing in the sale of design-led architectural homes.

It’s not Julie Andrews, but the hills are definitely alive with the sound of music! Mont-Tremblant is gearing up for the 28th edition of the Festival International du Blues de Tremblant, from July 12 to 16. This highly anticipated event promises five days of unforgettable experiences, featuring more than 100 free outdoor concerts across various stages in the heart of the pedestrian village. With a diverse lineup of talented artists and a unique festival atmosphere, this year’s Blues Festival offers exceptional performances and exciting activities—all against the breathtaking backdrop of the Laurentian Mountains.

Renaissance of the Festival International du Blues de Tremblant

After a COVID-imposed hiatus, the beloved Tremblant International Blues Festival is back at Mont-Tremblant. For five days in July, music will ring through the mountains with an array of captivating performances. With stages set throughout the charming pedestrian village at the bottom of the hill, the festival promises a majestic and soulful setting in which to enjoy the blues.



Perhaps best known worldwide for its magnificent ski slopes in winter, Mont-Tremblant is a true four-season resort destination. In summer, the ski village turns into a cottage resort town and the gondola offers sweeping views of the evergreen peaks and the picturesque dark blue waters below the hill. The mountain plays host to a diverse range of summer activities and acclaimed international events, including the Festival International du Blues de Tremblant, the Spartan Trifecta and the Ironman Triathlon.


A Wonderfully Eclectic Lineup

The Festival International du Blues de Tremblant prides itself on offering a wide variety of bluesy musical legends and this year’s edition is no exception. The festival kicks off on Wednesday, July 12, with performances including Ammoye—whose unique blend of reggae, rocksteady, gospel, and soul has earned her five Juno Award nominations—and Sugaray Rayford, a powerful bluesman who recently won Best Soul Blues Album at the 44th Blues Music Awards. The following day, the stage will be graced by Delgres, a Creole blues band known for their heartfelt compositions in Creole, English and French. As the festival moves into its third day, blues enthusiasts will be treated to the soulful melodies of Toronto’s Harry Manx and New Orleans-based blues and funk band, Dumpstaphunk. On Saturday, July 15, festivalgoers can expect a high-energy performance by Southern Avenue, a Memphis band known for their captivating vocals and rhythmic beats.


The Discovery Series

Every evening at 8 p.m. the Festival International du Blues de Tremblant presents the Discovery Series on the Place des Voyageurs stage. The featured artists have their roots in the blues but have since branched out and integrated a variety of musical influences to create their very own sound.

A Celebration for All Ages

Street music provides a soundtrack to gourmet restaurants, adorable shops and family-friendly activities, creating an unparalleled experience for all. The Festival International du Blues de Tremblant aims to create an inclusive and family-friendly environment, so alongside the music, the festival offers an array of free activities and workshops for families from Thursday to Sunday. Children can enjoy craft workshops, face painting and even have their caricature drawn, providing additional entertainment for families attending the event.

The Tremblant Experience

Tremblant provides an abundance of lodging options, exquisite dining experiences, boutique shopping and even a casino, all amidst the beauty of Mont-Tremblant National Park. Mont-Tremblant is about an hour and a half drive from Montreal, or half an hour from Saint-Agathe-des-Monts. There is also a small airport for private planes (commercial airline Porter Airlines flies into Tremblant, but their flights are limited to ski season).


To fully immerse yourself in the Festival International du Blues de Tremblant, and enjoy all the mountain has to offer, you may want to stay on site. The Tremblant website provides all the necessary details for making dining or lodging reservations and ensuring a seamless experience during the festival.
