7 Osler Pines Road
After purchasing a spectacular lot in Collingwood, Ontario, these outdoor enthusiasts invited SMPL to design a house with a west coast modern feel to it. With retirement fast approaching, we wanted to plan a house with affordability, practicality and sustainability in mind -a stylish dream house that would age gracefully and that could be enjoyed effortlessly for years to come. The exterior of the home is dressed in stone, wood and steel -all durable materials that are low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing. Vaulted, multi-level ceilings accentuate the main features of the home and the grandeur of the space. Black aluminum windows spanning from floor to ceiling in the dining room invite the outdoors in as natural light abounds and the trees in the rear yard appear perfectly framed from within the house. The centerpiece of the main room is a staggering 24-foot-tall stone clad wood burning fire place that warms the space efficiently and creates a focal point for entertaining. The main floor also features the master suite and a large walk-in closet. The basement is bright and open featuring three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a wine cellar, home gym, sauna and an outdoor patio complete with a hot tub.
