Leaside House

The cladding on this home is traditional hand moulded clay brick and local Ontario limestone. Combined with a mahogany front door and garage door, the traditional materials blend for a formal and appealing aesthetic. We used sapele mahogany stained dark like the oak floors for the interior of the front door and windows. It compliments nicely with the white walls, interior trim, and the black and white marble foyer flooring pattern.

Very few homes are built with a wood-burning masonry fireplace but this home features a Rumford fireplace clad with a blue-veined Ontario limestone.

This home also contains a lot of high ceilings which allowed us to install coffered mahogany details to match other wood details in the home. The kitchen features 11ft ceilings, traditional cabinetry and lots of natural light.

A typical SevernWoods traditional stair and railing detail with tightly spaced pickets was added for a pleasing look. Daylight filters down from a skylight on the third floor through the open staircase to the main floor of this home giving plenty of natural light.
