The Architect

From the firm that designed this amazing home

"Batay-Csorba Architects (BCA) is an architecture and interior design studio that combines research and practice to create progressive projects across all scales. What our projects (and clients) have in common is a desire to create something extraordinary"  from the web site of https://www.batay-csorba.com/

The Spaces

Influenced by an industrial look on the exterior with geometric lines that detail the vernacular of this homes architecture, the owners  have created a plan for an impressive home with a neutral palette of glass, light stained wood flooring and sightlines that go from back to front of the home, resulting in a clean and minimal interior aesthetic.

Open the door into the world of contemporary elegance as you explore this expansive home, spread across three primary levels and a lower floor. Every corner of this residence is crafted to blend spacious living areas seamlessly with distinct zones, creating an environment that encourages both unity and individuality.

Showcasing the use of architecture design , natural light, and materials, providing  a collection of rooms and pathways perfectly suited for both everyday living and luxurious indulgence.

A multitude of lifestyles are provided from family to executive professionals who require offices at home and big entertaining space as well as a private guest suite (provided in the lower level). The art collector will love the expansive walls and natural light and families will gather in the 2nd floor family/media room when not enjoying sitting around the expansive kitchen eating island The cook(s) in the household will never want to leave this kitchen and it is a showplace for entertaining intimate gatherings or large events.

The romantic private 3rd floor is an oasis of luxury and serenity. Sitting under the stars on your own private terrace  or enjoying the spa like en-suite bathroom to a private room for yoga /gym makes an inclusive luxurious principal bedroom suite.  This is what sweet dreams are made of.

The outside spaces:

There is a lovely rear deck that runs off the main floor and enjoyed from the interior of the home . Bringing the outside in and expanding the visual sense of spacious.

The deck steps down to the private garden area where you will find tucked into a corner a large sauna that you will enjoy in all seasons .

The roof terrace is unique in design and offers a wonderful private area to relax in.

The sauna

Many think of a  sauna as a  luxury spa treatment.

However the sauna health benefits may include easing pain, reducing stress, and improving cardiovascular health not to mention just finding a bit of peaceful, mid clearing and sweat inducing health for the body and soul. How wonderful to have it in your back yard .

Smart Home Technology

The smart home is controlled by the processor tower in the basement storage room. The system is called Control4.  The entire house is wired up into nine zones, including the master shower, ground floor, back patio, and third-floor deck.  Music from any app like Spotify, Apple or Amazon music, can be sent through the Control4 app to each zone in the house.  The tower is also designed to hold any receivers for Rogers or Bell TV, and can push this video and audio to any of the TVs within the house. This video feature is not currently set up, but is easily added if they choose. The furnace, blinds, lights, alarm system, and anything else they choose in the house can also be controlled through this main processor in the basement.  We currently have few different lights around. The house controlled through this app as well. They can be turned on and off while away from the house.
The skylights are remote operated. They can be opened which allows the warm air in the house to escape through the roof like a chimney effect. I believe these skylights can also be hooked up to the same remote through your phone.
