Finding the balance between contemporary and classic

Our one-of-a-kind family home in the lovely community of Arlington Woods at 4 Parkland Crescent is a custom home with understated elegance and a welcoming, refreshing feeling. With its mixture of contemporary finishes, modern windows, and classic wood detailing, it finds the perfect balance between new and vintage. The result? Comfort, beauty, and functionality all in one. 

With its location within the Ottawa green belt, the huge lot is surrounded by plenty of green space and opportunities for quiet communing with nature. At the same time, city amenities are only minutes away. It’s yet another balance for this welcoming home, which feels like a retreat from the bustle of city life without putting all the good stuff out of reach. 

For the house itself, we worked with the family to incorporate their ideas, dreams, and specific needs. As with all our custom build projects, the sky was the limit! We love using our expertise and creativity to find the right styling, the right layouts, and the right features to match the home that our client has always wanted, and that will work for them now and in the future.   

The result is a home that pulls in many different elements to create a completely custom fit for this particular family. A combination of finishes creates the perfect melding of styles and makes spaces suitable for both work and play. In the kitchen, traditional stone and exposed wood beams match easily with sleek dark and light cabinetry to create a functional but eye-catching and unique space. The open spaces of the living area feature a classic wood fireplace surrounded by elegant built-ins, and the staircase becomes a significant feature with its combination of light wood treads and a surprising metal handrail. Everything is enhanced with bright, state-of-the-art windows from Solii that make every space feel bright and welcoming. 

In smaller spaces, feature walls and wainscoting create interest and gorgeous spaces for an office and a private dining room. And the bathrooms feature stunning, jaw-dropping features like the massive walk-in shower, graceful stand-alone tub, and heated tile flooring that add to the peaceful vibe of the entire home. 

We’re proud of the balance and lifestyle this space is ready to provide for its new family. Let’s chat about how we can build the best possible home for your family, too.
