This family home is located in the heavily-wooded Lorne Park Estates. A neighbourhood originally intended to be cottage country, the area remains a secluded natural oasis. So it was only appropriate that this home design pay respect to its property's roots -- both literal and figurative.
The design borrows heavily from the craftsman style through its large decorated gables, and rich blend of natural materials. A timber-framed front porch and copper-roofed corner are standout features in the facade, but the home really embraces its cottage country surroundings as you approach the rear. Anchored by a three-storey stone chimney, the home's side elevation resembles a classic Muskoka retreat, featuring large glass gables and board and batten siding.
