Harken back to a simpler time … this clean, classic, yet very modern house, invokes a sense of timelessness. Although built in 2017, the house nestles in its forested setting as if it’s been there for a lifetime.
Black windows and doors provide a contrast to the mainly monochromatic colour palette throughout the home’s interior. Mullions create a slightly edgy, but authentic, feel and trimwork is kept to a minimum.
In the great room, stained white oak flooring provides a quiet backdrop to the drama of the dark wood-clad beams, while a high-efficiency wood burner enhances the cosy, inviting feel. The essentially square room, with dual aspect views, allows for ample seating areas and a dining space off the kitchen. The oversized pendants help create balance in the large room. Simply and cleanly furnished, texture is brought in with accessories and the hustle and bustle of everyday living.
The open-plan kitchen, complete with a farmhouse sink, upmarket appliances, custom cabinetry and quartz countertops, is a cook’s dream. A tone-on-tone white colour scheme lends a serene quality, while an abundance of drawers and open shelving offer practicality. Through the laminated glass door, the mudroom does triple duty as a pantry and laundry.
A vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom, along with outlooks to the trees through windows and French doors, creates a spacious, peaceful atmosphere. The hallway leading to the ensuite bathroom is flanked by dual closets, one featuring a barn door. In the bright ensuite, the simple white colour palette continues with accents of grey in the large format shower tiles, quartz countertops and travertine-look porcelain tile floor. The generously sized soaker tub sits invitingly before a picture window. Two additional bedrooms and guest bathroom, featuring the same high level of finishes, complete the floor plan.
The highly energy-efficient and quiet forced-air heat pump system, augmented by the great room fireplace, creates a snug haven. With the technology package … tv mounted over the fireplace and sound wired throughout … this exceptional home is most comfortable for a couple, but really comes to life when hosting a crowd!
