A modest heritage home in downtown Collingwood, this previously unkempt property required a timeless design to bring back its old-school charm. Using elegant clean lines and classic formality, numerous spaces were beautifully transformed to suit the history of a simpler time. Square-cut limestone steps, orderly mass plantings and a cobblestone driveway give the home curb appeal and a stunning first impression.
In the backyard natural stone walls and formal plantings are used to frame an intimate dining patio, where the homeowners can enjoy the soft fragrance of lavender and view a classic sundial feature between the rows of flowering pears.
- Square-cut limestone front steps and landing, formal mass plantings, cobblestone driveway, cedar deck and custom barbecue pergola, wooden privacy fences, wood and steel custom gates, perimeter privacy plantings, paving stone patios, sundial focal point feature on a stone pillar, irrigation, night lighting.
- Public safety (i.e. working adjacent to high-traffic pedestrian areas), mobilization of equipment and material storage on a very small urban lot
- Privacy screening of large neighbouring residences & commercial areas, screening of garage from patio view
- Underground drainage and utility work on a tight site with minimal grade change, minimizing disturbance of existing large shade trees.
