My Lifetime Home – Willow Park Complete Executive Home Renovation
Over the past 12 months, we have been working on a spectacular home renovation in Calgary’s SW estate community of Willow Park. Our esteemed architect, Dwayne Seal, worked on this project and seamlessly turned the client’s definitive and expansive wish list into a reality. In just a few short weeks, we will enjoy the very rewarding and emotional moment of turning the keys over to our client to enjoy their dream home!
The variety of design initiatives and criteria on this 4000 sq ft project are truly phenomenal and required the talents of many of our trades, suppliers and staff members to execute a successful result. No stone was left unturned in this renovation and central to the modifications was embracing the concept of “homes for life”; a vast majority of our clients often love the comfort of their established neighbourhood and are content with their chosen lot, however their existing floor plan no longer embraces their evolving family lifestyle and/or they have future considerations they would like addressed. This project was no exception. The home owners wanted to create a home that would potentially stay in the family for generations to come as well as would accommodate potential health requirements of their live-in mother.
One of our client’s main requests was creating a home infused with as much light as possible, allowing for year round horticulture opportunities in a temperature controlled solarium. Expansive window treatments were created with two stories of great windows capturing amazing views of the Willow Park Golf course, along with two incredible skylights. Oversized window wells were built in the basement, providing incredible light transfer.
A very unique design element was a secret kitchen. This was included in the main kitchen floor plan, which needed to accommodate a significant amount of entertaining. This secret kitchen was built behind a seamless cabinetry unit. The intent was that the secret kitchen would be used by caterers and effectively keeping the hub of cooking activity separate from visiting guests.
An exotic river rock spa & steam room was built, exuding a truly distinct, relaxing spa feel complete with a steam shower that seats three, a five person sauna and an area that accommodates a massage table.
Other phenomenal assets in this house include an exclusive fitness room, humidity-controlled wine cellar, dedicated theatre, an impressive main floor aquarium, two story fire place, expansive dance floor, built-in puppy wash, spiral staircase, rough-in for a wheelchair lift, a truly impressive main floor aquarium and a marvellous master ensuite with secondary ensuites in each bedroom.
There were extensive landscape renovations completed on this project as well, including a court yard style front yard and a back yard featuring ponds, bridges, an outdoor fireplace and kitchen and beautiful his and her decks.
We are extremely proud of this significant project and we are grateful to our client for the opportunity to create a home that is their favourite place to be!
On Tuesday July 6th, 2010, our client has graciously allowed us access to their home so we can host an exclusive Willow Park Showcase! If you are interested in being added to our limited, private guest list for this event – please email us at email@example.com
