The wish list for this Chatsworth Fine Home included a french “Old world” feel, long lasting resilient construction, and shabby chic décor. An off white colour scheme, tall ceilings, and spacious volumes are used to create a flowing, airy feel. Engineered walnut floors throughout evoke warm earth tones with engineered durability. Working tirelessly with the millwork suppliers, the nuances of our client’s shabby chic vision was created in the distressed, French Country cabinetry. Careful building envelope detailing and blower door tests were implemented to ensure this home is ultra-comfortable, high-performing, and energy efficient.
An elevator descends to the basement which boasts 11ft high ceilings with advanced waterproofing for a dry, comfortable, and cozy space which houses hobby and project rooms for the client’s family, along with a rec room and bar ideal for entertaining. The two storey “lanai,” a transitional space that overlooks the poolside fountains to the rear, is completely screened in for comfortable summer evenings outdoors.
A greenhouse, imported from the UK, lends an old-world charm and a relaxed feel to the rear garden. The clients are happily settled in their new home and we wish them all the best!
