The clients are a young family who wanted to create a luxurious, resort-like living space.
The exterior is modern, grand and impressive. The varying roof heights/styles (low pitched and flat) result in a dynamic facade. The mix of natural stone, black paneling and warm wood siding and soffits add warmth to the modern aesthetic. The landscaping and built-in stone planter further integrate the home with the property.
The interior is luxurious. The colours and materials are rich: plush jewel-tone furniture, black marble, brass details, intricate light fixtures, velvet accents, custom wall panelling. The layout is elaborate: multiple entertaining areas (library, basement recreation room, outdoor living), a luxe master suite and an open concept great room.
An innovative feature and standout focal point is the fireplace place in the great room. Not only is it clad with book matched black marble, it’s a 3-sided, open concept, linear wood burning fireplace.
The outdoor living space is innovative and aligns with the client’s vision of a resort-like environment. The covered porch features an outdoor kitchen, dining and conversation seating, along with an open gas fireplace. Roll down Phantom screens span the parameter of the covered porch. An exhaust system was required to allow for the bbq and fireplace to be used when the screens are down.
The floor plan was designed for a family who entertains, featuring a library with bar/lounge, a formal dining area, a separate spice/prep kitchen, multiple outdoor entertaining areas and an elaborate basement layout (including a bunk room for when the children have friends sleepover).
The main floor includes a bedroom for guests, specifically elderly family members visiting from out of town. As well as an office with views to the beautifully landscaped backyard.
