Kylemore - Townhome
Wellness was the inspiration for Kylemore’s new model townhome in Markham, Ontario. In fall 2020, the award-winning builder released its first new home community – Angus Glen South Village - under a refreshed corporate branding and philosophy that focusses on wellness in the homes and communities it shapes. This gorgeous 2,430 sq. ft. three-storey townhome provided the in-house design team the perfect opportunity to create a model that appeals to active families seeking a home for entertaining in style, as well as providing areas for privacy, quiet study, and work from home. Throughout, the layout addresses the pinch points families experience, especially during the pandemic.
About this project
This fully furnished model benefits from oversized windows and 10-foot and 9-foot ceiling heights the ideal showcase for the array of exquisite finishes and custom options Kylemore offers to its homebuyers. The design team led by Mariam Aboutaam, elegantly combines Scandinavian-influenced sleek styling, a warm neutral colour palette and natural materials with elements suited to a NYC loft in geometric shapes, and bold black and brass finishes. The team selected luxury materials that are a hallmark of Kylemore’s homes.
At the heart of the home, the kitchen is a functional and fabulous open concept space connected to the dining room. The kitchen is warm and refined featuring finishes derived from nature such as wood and marble. The centrepiece is a large island (7’ 6”) in Calacatta marble in extra premium polish with a sleek waterfall edge. The island has a 10” deep overhang providing a space to tuck the stools under when they aren’t being used, it also contains the dishwasher, refuse drawers and sink on one side. The Calacatta marble was also chosen for the countertop, backsplash and returns behind the island and in the coffee bar, for luxurious effect. The kitchen also features a floor to ceiling coffee bar which serves as an element that divides the open space, separating the kitchen from the great room. This unit is both functional and beautiful.
In the dining room, the design team set out to create special vignettes and bespoke details to enhance the overall design. The gas fireplace is clad in Grande Marble Golden White porcelain slab, reflecting the natural stone in the adjoining kitchen and is framed with black metal trim for a tailored and contemporary look. The fireplace casts a warm glow into the kitchen/dining creating an intimate, and elegant conversation area.
The model townhome combines Kylemore’s detailed approach to construction, imaginative design, energy-saving and future-proofing inclusions, and luxurious finishes resulting in a family home that is both timeless and elegant.
