It is here that one finds a beautiful sensible and contemporary renovation of a barn house that offers a marvelous window into the breathtaking landscape in which it sits. Dubbed by Ruinelli Associati Architetti this is a transformation that combines the classic with the modern without ever seeming out of place.
As is the case with most modern homes it is a neutral color palette that acts as a beautiful and unassuming canvas for the designer to showcase her true brilliance. Each room is filled with bespoke décor wonderful accessories and a fabulous piece of wall art or two and each one of them complements the other perfectly.
The white plastered exterior not only allows the home to blend into the snowy slopes around it but also improves the insulation of the structure and ensures that the interior remains toasty warm during the frigid winter months.
It is fascinating to see the blend of contrasting textures throughout the home with specific features such as the fireplace wall and kitchen counter in concrete lovely oak finishes and even exposed timber beams coming together seamlessly.
Vaulted roofs give the interior a distinct look with double-height spaces that flow into the relaxing garden outside. A confluence of comfort style and serenity the exterior of the residence clad in concrete wood and metal further accentuates its uniqueness and beauty.
One of the many highlights inside this renovated home is the modern kitchen with its lovely wooden cabinets that anchor the space even as a remarkable backsplash steals the spotlight. Call it eclectic transitional modern or San Francisco-Chic; Cumberland Street Residence has an undeniable style of its own!
It is the kitchen and dining area on the lower level that are connected visually with the rear yard thanks to the large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors even as the second level features a smart and beautiful family zone that overlooks the lush green canopy outside. Sensible in its design and visually dramatic this striking house nestled on the ravine of Cedarvale Park is an absolute showstopper!
