Project: Major renovation. Tear down (almost all of) existing structure. Keep 2 walls, build new house.
This house was a 900 square foot bungalow built in the mid-1950s. It was torn down with the exception of 2 walls: the east and west walls were maintained. We designed and built an addition on the left side and entire rear of the house and added a 2nd storey. The new home was transformed into over 4,200 square feet of luxury living.
The focus was to design an open concept living space and to maximize the natural light from the south facing rear of the property. Note the consistency in the design: almost all the cabinetry is high gloss white and almost all the tiles are Carrara marble. Every countertop, including the dining table, is made from Ceasarstone Quartz. One of the more interesting aspects of the home is the stunning open concept walk in closet off the master bedroom with its own skylight.
The exterior is an entertainers dream: a 500 square foot cedar deck, glass railing, patterned concrete and a modern 16’x32’ saltwater pool.
Cool fact: The house generated lots of attention when it was listed for sale in 2016 and it sold for a record amount in its neighbourhood. It house was profiled in the Globe and Mail. See the article here.
