Custom Home

Stage: Design Development

Project description

This unique home design is a twist on Modern Craftsman fusion with a hint of Mediterranean style. We presented our clients with two exterior style concepts. This model was their first choice, though some of the details (e.g., larger windows) from the other Modern Craftsman option will be merged with the chosen exterior style option. See the client’s other option.

Designed for our client’s estate property in Kanata, it’s a spacious home plan with some unique features, including a gym for their athletic family and large office space over the garage with a separate entrance for their home-based business.

On the main floor, the open-concept great room, dining, and kitchen area will welcome family and friends. A soaring two-storey, two-sided fireplace anchors the space. Transitioning from indoor to outdoor, the sunroom off the dining area is a flexible space suitable for everything from casual family gatherings to hosting formal dinners. Accessible from the sunroom, a patio on the ground level will be protected from the weather by the second-level deck above. A mud room, walk-in closet, private home office, powder room, and main bath complete the main floor.

On the second level, the primary bedroom boasts a large ensuite, walk-in closet, and covered balcony. A spiral staircase with a two-storey, floor-to-ceiling window will reveal a beautiful view and provide access to the gym below. Three additional bedrooms all have walk-in closets and ensuite bathrooms. The laundry room completes the upper living area.

The basement level will be a fun space with a rec room (complete with wet bar) fitness room, home theatre with terraced seating and built-in snack bar, and guest bedroom suite with walk-in closet, along with bathroom, storage room, and mechanical. The 2-bay garage and two single-bay garages are oversized with access to the backyard.
