Guests get the royal treatment – behind an island of crab apple trees, the dramatic anchoring of a black entryway door on traditional brick masonry leads into black granite floors at entry. Themes are crystal clear – high-quality finishing, exquisite detailing, and a bold play on neutrals throughout. A towering stairway mirror reflects the light from a striking modern chandelier back into the space – consideration for light in all its forms rings true throughout the home. While guests have been treated to an auspicious first impression, it's entry through the rear terrace that awards the prime vantage – along a meandering path and between perennial plantings – that sets a truly incomparable scene.
A clever re-design of key living spaces leaves sophisticated accents and smart function at every turn. Lighting maintains a clear focal point throughout, offering multiple levels of ambient or task lighting in the form of pot lights, overhead lighting, and sconces on dimmers. In the living room, a wood-burning fireplace commands attention, wrapped in black granite for depth and framed in crisp white for balance. Distinctive tilt-and-turn patio doors are both functional and flexible, yielding comfort with no compromise on security. The expanse of windows extends living space onto the terrace during warmer months.
Note ingenious interior design at its most elegant – a focal wall of custom cabinetry and glassed displays leave curios and pieces d'art as fabulous conversation pieces in the dining room. On closer inspection, clever nooks at either end serve as tucked-away home work spaces, with warm walnut-finished maple serving as a rich desktop. Pocket doors allow freedom to display or hide the space. Likewise, pocket doors distinguish dining room from kitchen, but with finishes this tantalizing, you'd best leave it all on display. High-gloss white cabinetry couldn't be more of-the-moment; the sharp contrast of black hardware and faucets creates an impeccable pair. A black granite sink lies nestled in quartz countertops with a smart cut-away looking out to living room and the verdant view beyond. The fridge and pantry wall frame a secondary workspace – well-loved as a beverage centre, find its function immeasurable.
Entryway access leads to the study or den – a modern take on the French door, chic frosted glass allows a touch of privacy and a handsome dash of style. A sunlight-conscious wall cutout integrates the space into the adjacent hallway and allows an additional glimpse through silhouette blinds to the verdant view beyond. Hall-bound, pause to note solid doors and the visual pop of black hardware throughout, then to the main bathroom, where quartz countertops serve as jumping-off point for the vessel sink and oversized on-trend tiles. The mirrored vanity wall casts light around the space, lengthening and brightening to tremendous results.
In the nearby bedroom, the sensation of pure New Zealand wool carpet underfoot is bound to make guests swoon – they're impressed. The master suite achieves the same results – with ample space for a sitting area and walk-in closet, find complete repose in the long stretch of quartz and vessels of his and hers ensuite sinks, the barely-there frameless glass of the walk-in shower, the rich indulgence of such an utterly complete package.
With no space an afterthought, laundry room workspace and adjacent storage leaves chores a little less tedious. For the practically-minded, above ceiling acoustic insulation keeps noise at a minimum and new HVAC systems and a video intercom system make for a truly worry-free existence.
