This project was a labour of love for the owners, who lived in the half-acre lot’s original house for five years while planning their ideal home for entertaining and hosting family. After demolishing the structure, they rebuilt a two-story 10,000 square-foot home to house both their parents in an attached in-law suite, as well as their family of five. Though the suite is a completely self-contained living space, an interior door creates a truly multi-generational residence ready for extended family gatherings.
Every aspect of the home's design is focussed on everyday entertaining. As soon as you enter the bright open-concept home, you’re met with sightlines to the expansive outdoor living space out back and across several inviting gathering areas inside. The entry opens into the great room, anchored by a concrete-finished fireplace flanked by two picture windows. Immediately to the left, an eclipse folding door fully opens up to the back patio, doubling the living and entertaining space.
The great room also flows into a streamlined, highly functional kitchen featuring a waterfall-edge double island that seats six, ample storage, bar area, baking area, and walk-in pantry with a second fridge. Contrasting cabinetry is walnut and stained matte black ash with panel-ready appliances.
Its modern minimalist design embraces clean lines, neutral colours, natural light, and simplicity. The largely black, white, and grey palette is enhanced by earth-toned accents. A range of textures and materials like concrete (floors, fireplace), brick (accent walls), and wood (beams, cabinetry, casework) bring warmth, visual interest, and richness throughout the home.
This luxury home includes many other highlights such as a formal dining room with a glass wine cellar wall; a dramatic black powder room; and a striking main ensuite with a sunken tub. The backyard accentuates outdoor entertaining with a pool, hot tub, firepit, outdoor kitchen, and brick pizza oven. An accessory building provides additional storage and hosting space at the very back of the property.
NOVERO homes teamed up with Su Casa Design and Studio Illa on this custom home project.
