Set on a gorgeous historic property near Wallacetown. The new owner and VELD architect fell in love at first site. The house is at the top of the property overlooking rolling hills before falling down 70ft to the shore of Lake Erie. The home on the property is of significant historic significance and owner of one of the first settlers to the area. Thus careful consideration had to be taken when proposing an addition to the house. The addition includes a new modern chef’s kitchen, new master suite and living space projecting out into the view of the property. The addition reaches as far as it can towards the lake with lots of windows to bring the outside in, and extensive decks to bring the inside living out. The style is a contemporary version of the existing red-brick farmhouse style bringing modern clean details to the traditional home. VELD architect assisted from master planing, design, and permit drawings. And will be assisting with construction in the future.
The property also includes a master plan for landscape rejuvenation, wetlands, orchards, lookouts, and hideaways. The property has three existing outbuildings, one small historic pig house, and one ruined hen house foundation. These will all be maintained, reused, and incorporated into the story of the property through landscaping, and recreation uses.
