This traditional Canadian house exhibits a vernacular style of architecture that is influenced but not defined by the Ontario cottage style. Characterized by a steep hip roof, with multiple gables on all four elevations, projecting gable roofs signify entrances into the house, which is surrounded by lush, established trees and planting. The façade is a combination of stucco and stacked stone cladding, which gives the house the impression of rising from the earth. The interior fusies contemporary design and layout with traditional detailing. The home is bathed in natural light from multiple windows. Interior walls are limited, opting for a more open layout. The entry foyer leads to a bright and airy living room and an adjacent open kitchen in shades of taupe and white. This color palette is reflected throughout the house. Dark wood flooring compliments the lighter colors and adds a touch of warmth to this delightfully cheerful home.
