Warm and Inviting: Rich wood elements, from floors to ceilings and cabinetry, infuse warmth into the space while highlighting unique architectural details, like the distinctive 'paper airplane' pattern on the angled ceiling of the great room.
Inspired Colour Palette: The interior colour scheme draws inspiration from the surrounding landscape, with soft greens, birch bark, caramels, soft white, charcoals, and bleached oak.
Seamless Integration: The lower-level bathroom's tile selection reflects the exterior colours, seamlessly blending the outside and inside worlds.
Versatile Screened-In Porch: The screened-in porch features retractable bug screens and metal screens for all seasons. The sliding door system between the dining room and porch effortlessly transforms the space into an additional entertaining room.
