It is interesting to see how the majority of homeowners in recent times are opting for smart renovations instead of completely replacing old homes with grand new structures. Located in Canada the takes a similar sustainable and innovative path as architects from Boom Town transformed an aging house into a lovely modern residence. Yet one can see a wonderful blend of the old and the new inside the revamped home as warm wooden surfaces metallic accents and the exquisite use of exposed concrete walls gives the private home a relaxed.
The entrance of the private home seems modest but the interior opens up to reveal a spacious living area surrounded by glass windows. The color scheme inside the home is as neutral as possible with pops of yellow and orange being used to add some color. Wood is the major component of the beachfront residence along with a steel framework that gives it a perched silhouette. A living area three serene bedrooms and 2 lovely traditional bathrooms complete this beautiful escape that is priced at $4 million.

The intermediate level contains the living areas along with the outdoor kitchen and dining space that open towards the infinity pool and the outdoor deck.

Walnut is used extensively throughout the home and a staircase with walnut treads leads to the top level that features the home office the master suite and a smart workstation that allows the adults in the family to keep an eye on the lower level at all times. The master bedroom and bathroom also seem to dip into the magic of gray to bring in a sense of serene sophistication even as a beautiful outdoor deck completes this revitalized loft.
Stone cottages are great at keeping heat in during the winter (stone is naturally insulating) and cool in during the summer so they are ideal for places with a varying climate. As long as they are kept up and repaired they can last for centuries.
