  • Situated on a wide lot in an established Ontario neighbourhood, The Ravine House is a 30 year old 3800 sq. ft. home that underwent an extensive interior renovation. Purchased from her parents when they decided to downsize, the owners decided to update the outdated interiors and poor use of space within the existing estate to better suit their family’s modern aesthetic and lifestyle. The primary design goal was to transition the house into a contemporary design, and create a creative culinary environment for a hobby chef.

    The extensive use of wood on the interiors ties the house back to nature, as views of the ravine in the backyard can be enjoyed through the massive floor-to-ceiling windows along the kitchen and whole rear wall of the home. Photo 6 of Ravine House modern home
