The Kids Rooms

One of the brightest pops of colour in the home is in the two rooms set aside for “the girls”. There are two wonderful rooms that are connected thru wall cutouts . One for sleeping and one for playing. 

Staying Alive “in the lower level

The 70’s vibe in the lower level make for a vibrant and fun family space

There’s plenty of additional  room as only about  half of the basement is finished. The finished part includes a bathroom and a great media room to kick back and watch the game or your favorite movie.

Whether you use the roller rink this is a great room for the kids to hang out or do a throw back party with a disco floor ( disco ball included)- just wear the bell bottoms and  bring the music and do your best disco moves!

The Lower Level is partially above ground at the back of the home so the windows are big and bright. “It doesn’t feel like a basement,” says Collins.

COMING SOON – GLEBE MODERNISM BLENDED WITH SUPERB LOCATION

NOW SOLD

FREEN RESIDENCE

ARCHITECT JOHN DONKIN

A home that makes you stop and look. With its easy lines and understated modern design is an alluring home. Architect John Donkin  worked his magic along with the owners to redo a 1950s home. Turning the house into a statement of simplicity overlooking the water of Patterson Creek in the Glebe. The homes is beautifully simple in design, capturing the light and vistas from most rooms of the home yet providing privacy for the owners.

A zen like rear garden, beautifully landscaped front grounds  and a huge terrace off the second floor overlooking the Inlet provides summer havens. The home is full of unique features and design choices that make the house one of a kind.

 Part of ab article from The National Review of Design and Practice written about 5 Clemow known as the Freen House 

ARCHITECT JOHN DONKIN   TEXT JANINE DEBANN

Donkin began by gutting the interior to the framing and stripping the exterior down to the sheathing. He recomposed the south faCade asymmetrically and used floor-to-ceiling glass instead of punched windows. This created a more dramatic diagonal visual path from the living room across the site. Inside, these new openings organize the living room and a conservatory-like sitting space in the southwest corner. The view now terminates at an elegant row of houses some 200 feet away. In addition, Donkin clarified circulation by boldly relocating the staircase from its position in the southwest corner of the house.

The new open-riser steel stair, pulled inward in plan, now leads to a central point in the upper floor, leaving room for both an office and a master bedroom along the south side. The ground floor still consists of the same living spaces as before, but is now reconfigured as visually interconnected zones linking the street to the rear yard. Donkin’s fascination with continuous spaces is evident in every corner of the house. Rooms do not contain, but rather terminate at distant points, giving the house a scale far greater in perception than in measured reality
