Situated on a beautiful wooded lot, this contemporary bungalow is a rural retreat designed for open concept living with a strong connection to the outdoors.
One of major design goals of this modern home was to capitalize on the view of the river with a master bedroom retreat that meets the edge of the river. Careful planning of the elevations was required on this narrow, natural sloping, deep lot to incorporate an on-grade entrance and garage down to the master bedroom terrace, and ensuring that the main floor did not have too many stairs.

IDS this year had a great focus on tile, bathtubs and showers. There were beautiful 3-dimensional tiles, classic arabesque tiles, and many retakes on the traditional hand-painted tile. There was very little stone veneer applied as a wall finish – I think we’ll see more tile work in the next few years.
