Added a heated driveway and walkways to keep them free of ice and snow during the winter months.
Enhanced Entry and living Space
Created an elegant two-story foyer with warm wainscoting and opened the living space between the Kitchen, Dining Room and Great Room.
The Kitchen was expanded and redesigned, more than doubling its size, to create a useful space for preparing food and gathering together.
Great Room and Dining Room
The locations of the Great Room and Dining Room were reversed, with the Dining Room moved to the front of the house and the Great Room in the back. French doors on each side of the step-down bar provide easy access to the outdoor patio and fire feature. The Great Room features a fireplace and a step down bar.
The entrance from the garage includes a landing and stairs to the Mudroom. The Mudroom features lots of storage and a built-in laundry closet with a stacked washer and dryer to accommodate busy lives.
Upper Level Addition
The Upper Level includes the Master Suite along with three additional bedrooms each having their own private bathroom. A full function laundry room is also included on this level
A Sport Court was built under the garage to support the family’s hockey lifestyle, as well as provide a place for group workouts with friends. A viewing area from the Recreation Room makes it easy to watch what is happening on the Sport Court.
Step Down Bar
The Great Room features a Step Down curved bar set at table height to create a relaxed atmosphere.
Increased outdoor experience and expanded living space with the addition of a porch with phantom screens that are motorized and easily retractable to provide a screened or open experience. The porch has a fireplace, as well as infrared heaters, to maximize time outdoors as the seasons change.
