Port Credit Residence

DESIGN

This new 4 Bedroom Single Family Residence is located on the shores of Lake Ontario in Port Credit.  The building is designed to take advantage of the sweeping views over lake.

 

Replacing the original, outdated home, this new residence responds to the irregular lot by separating living and private areas around a double height foyer. The open plan living-dining-kitchen area opens out on to a sheltered deck providing elevated views out to the water.

The upper level contains the master suite with a private deck overlooking the lake, 2 bedrooms with sweeping lake views, and guest bedroom.
