Black Creek Ravine

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Location
  • Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • This 1970's bungalow is located near Georgetown, Ontario, and is perched on the edge of a ravine fronting Black Creek. The home is effectively a new building built on existing foundation walls. Built by Retreats, the finished home has an EnerGuide rating of 86, quadruple the original insulation and air-tightness levels, and upgraded heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems. As well, the home utilizes passive solar techniques like southern windows for passive heat gain and a design that allows for cross ventilation patterns. The home's exterior reflects a more vernacular architectural style, and the interiors were opened up greatly and modernized.

    The home was designed with entertaining family and friends in mind. Therefore, the house, at one storey tall with a small basement, features a spacious and accommodating master wing, with a bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet, and laundry facilities, and a guest wing on the opposite side of the floor, with two bedrooms and a three-piece bathroom.

    A special feature of the house is the large, screened-in porch on the east off of the home office. The pitched roof and location under the tall forest trees makes the porch a cool respite on hot summer day.
