A desire for striking views and a modern aesthetic informed this new home design.
The owners dreamed of raising their family in the countryside but wanted to retain the energy efficient lifestyle they enjoyed in their downtown Toronto condo. When a property on the eastern edge of the city became available, they saw their opportunity to build the green home of their dreams—one with ample space, a large kitchen garden, and a sense of connection to the land.
Backing onto the Rouge River, the home boasts expansive views over the valley. Although the property is urban with all the conveniences of the city, it feels like it is on the edge of miles of uninterrupted wilderness.
