Inside An Exotic 1920s Bungalow In British Columbia

Designed by a California architect, this sprawling 1920s bungalow in Victoria, British Columbia, looks like it could have been plucked from the Hollywood Hills. “Its Moorish influence is pretty unique in Victoria,” says homeowner Tamara Napoleon. She and husband Merle Alexander, both Indigenous lawyers specializing in Indigenous business and resource law, fell in love with house’s beguiling arches, spacious great room and exotic character. Take a peek inside the 4,400-square-foot home where you can practically feel the California sunshine streaming in.
