Parkside Home

This modern farmhouse-style home was built for a growing family. The sloping lot allowed for a walk-out basement off the front. In order to take advantage of the lovely lake and mountain views, we placed the main family living areas on the top floor. The family entry, sleeping and bathing areas are on the second floor. The lower floor contains the mechanical room, family guest bedroom / office space and a separate rental suite. The style throughout is clean, bright and modern.
