Listed on Albrighton Real Estate this East Cordova Street apartment is nestled in a building that was originally built in 1909. Used in several different days for nearly a century its new-found avatar as a loft condominium was completed in 2006 even while preserving some of the original brick walls and woodwork.
It is the direction of the wind from the west that defines the main access of the house and its overall silhouette. It is this spatial arrangement that also shapes the floor plan on the inside with two different wings containing the private and public areas of the home.
The interior is a blend of public and private spaces with décor playing second fiddle to the more effervescent and striking backdrop. A modern kitchen in white relaxing bedrooms and spacious play areas for kids complete the smart makeover!
The new contemporary extension in timber and glass is at the heart of the project that aims to revitalize this historic structure even while preserving its original aura and creating interiors that stay true to the rustic backdrop! Set in an idyllic 60-acre valley the new building acts as a transitional zone between the original farmhouse and the converted bar.
It is the courtyard that facilitates flow of natural light across the two levels and gives the interior an open and bright ambiance despite its private street façade. The use of white for the backdrop accentuates a sense of airiness while modern minimal décor keeps the living area uncluttered.
Both the pond and the mature landscape around the house give it a cloak of green and provide ample privacy even as the dashing white structure with black trims stands in captivating contrast. A cleverly concealed driveway snakes through the trees and leads you to the entry of the minimal residence.
Gone or the days when rigid walls were used to delineate space. In the modern world it is an open floor plan that holds sway with utility of each space defining it. There are no firm borders between the kitchen dining and living area with each flowing into the next ever so effortlessly.
