Summerhill Towne

Summerhill Towne

Completed: October 01, 2016

A new baby on the way spurred the renovation of this Toronto Victorian home to create a family-friendly space that melds the best of old and new. 

Rather than leave the downtown neighbourhood they love in search of a larger home, the owners decided to renovate their approximately 1,300-square-foot home.
They gained valuable space by ensuring every inch is put to good use and that no space is wasted. They used their existing square footage to its best advantage. “They customized the home to their wants,” says contractor Amedeo Barbini. 

The homeowner is a designer who works for a commercial design company, a bonus because “the more clients understand about the process and construction, the more their expectations are realistic,” he says. The homeowner created the drawings for the project, and chose colours and products she wanted. 

The all-important kitchen and bathrooms were renovated and more usable family space was ‘recaptured’ by including the square footage offered in an enclosed back porch.
