Pineneedle Row, a Mississauga street known for its traditional homes, lush landscape, and multitude of David Small designs, now features this natural modern renovation.
These before pictures are all too familiar.
The renovation of this Lorne Park bungalow shows how minor modifications can completely reinvigorate a home.
Our clients came to us with a request we receive often, "give our home curb appeal".
Although a master suite addition was the primary goal, the true success of this project lies in the rethinking of the home’s exterior.
It was longtime dream of the former owner of this established High Park home to see it fully restored.
This circa 1950 bungalow possessed “good bones” but lacked the space required by a growing family.
With their growing family in mind, our client wanted their home in Lakeview to grow as well.
The expansion and development of this home was conducted in two phases.
This 1950’s sidesplit was given an exterior upgrade while leaving all existing living spaces intact.
This was a house constructed with two fronts; the main entry on one side addressing a major street and the garage and “every day” entry on the opposite side off a less travelled road.
The owners’ initial requirements were to create a larger garage and mud room in the front with nanny’s quarters above.
Majestically positioned, well back from the street, this house had a charm that steered all program requirements.
The primary program requirements called for a rear yard expansion to accommodate a new two-storey great room, a master bedroom expansion, and both ground level and upper level porch additions.
Originally constructed in the 1950’s as part of a large planned subdivision of one, one and a half, and two storey homes by the Shipp Corporation, this home was similar to most others in the neighbourhood; a simple “salt box” building form with an attached single car garage.
Built in the 1950's this one and a half storey Applewood Acres house was replicated throughout the neighbourhood at the time of original construction.
This renovation project was initiated by a local builder as a speculative development.
