Project of the Year

The epitome of traditional elegance, this 5-bedroom, 5½-bath home is beautifully presented to the street while maximizing the large backyard for family play. Indiana limestone veneer and stucco with full moulding on the window trim creates a stone-look facade.

Offering room for a young family and space to entertain, the large kitchen is the heart of the home. Separate butler’s pantry and prep area boast large walk-in pantry, with access to the formal dining room.

The two-storey foyer’s circular staircase inspired timeless details throughout, including wainscoting, crown moulding, and a distinctive cherrywood-lined office. From the kitchen, the island overlooks the informal eating area and family room, with cast stone fireplace mantel, coffered ceilings, custom built-ins and French doors to patio and garden. TV/playroom and 10’ basement provide room for the growing family, while a main-floor guest room accommodates visitors.

Upstairs, the open-layout master suite fills half the second floor, with French doors for privacy when needed, his-and-hers walk-in closets with dressing area, spacious spa-inspired master bath with separate water closet, dual vanity, glass-enclosed shower and stand-alone tub. The children’s wing features three bedrooms with walk-in closets, two shared bathrooms and large laundry.

Outside, a covered porch with fireplace, patio and barbecue area open off kitchen and family room, offering additional livable space overlooking the large backyard. Two heat pumps maximize efficiency and provide year-round comfort. Special care was taken to protect and preserve trees on-site, and rock blasted for the basement was re-used. //
