On a heavily wooded corner lot in an established Lorne Park neighbourhood sits this classic home. Dark painted wood emphasizes the bold rooflines, light-coloured stone adds warmth to the façade and the most outstanding feature, the leaded copper roof and floor-to-ceiling windows that enclose the living room creates character. The leaded copper not only adds aesthetic intrigue to the home, bringing out the charcoal colour of the stone, but plays a functional role as well. It is a highly durable material with an incredible lifespan. As the home ages, the leaded copper will change colour, developing a beautiful silvergray patina that will deepen over time.
All the elements of the design – the mix of exterior materials (stone, wood, stucco, leaded copper), the rows of windows on the rear of the house, and the preservation of a significant stand of mature trees – perfectly integrates the home with its surroundings. It is a timeless design that will mature and grow more beautiful with the property.
