A landscape upgrade was required to compliment and accentuate this traditional architectural gem, located in the heart of a historic town.
Drawing inspiration from the architectural style of the house, a new driveway was constructed of exposed aggregate and complimented by natural granite inlays and borders. To reduce the amount of maintenance needed during the winter months, the driveway was installed with a high-efficiency heating system that virtually eliminates the need for ploughing or shovelling.
In the rear yard, an existing heritage structure was transformed into a garage.
Large granite pavers, laid into the turf, provide vehicular access while minimally impacting the lawn area. A custom rectangular pool with a spill-over spa and fire feature creates a focal point, while the large planted evergreens act as a backdrop for the custom curved colonnade. Two covered terraces were designed – again with an eye to the residence’s architectural style – to allow for additional exterior lounge and dining spaces.
