Today, allow us to take you on a tour down history lane with a stunningly designed Edwardian home. This exemplification of homes-through-the-ages speaks of an architectural era, rooted in the reign of Queen Victoria’s son, King Edward VII. Ornate details and subtle shades were only a few of the grand details that defined this famed style - a style that has been popularized throughout Canada after the 1900s. The expert architects from Solares Architecture have done a remarkable work in transforming this classic Edwardian home. They have tastefully preserved its charm while introducing some amazing changes to its exterior and interiors. Come, have a look!

Turn-of-the-century exterior.

When you see from the driveway, this is an archetypal Edwardian-structured house. It is a striking building located in the midst of an old neighborhood in the center of the town. Made of red bricks, the house contains a pretty porch and two grand gables roofs. It stands out in the vicinity and urges people to take a look at the interiors!

A contemporary designed dining room.

If the outside view made you curious to see how the house looked on the inside, you will not be disappointed.  The contemporary dining room is a mix of old and new elements, rendering it with a completely different charm. The airy space, adequate lighting, and a rustic feel are great features to look forward to.

Fashionable open kitchen.

Who would not love such a spacious, lighted, and well-planned kitchen? It has a perfect blend of modern and country elements, which is in line with the entire design of the house. Most of the state-of-art accessories are placed around a beautifully decorated space. The huge American fridge is something that shall certainly not leave your notice.

A traditional yet trendy living room.

We wanted to retain a conventional look in the living room, but did not want to compromise on luxury or comfort. The carefully placed antiques amidst modern essentials complete the required ambiance. How an interior decoration turns out depends on the precise balance and we have maintained that just right.

A cozy lounge with a warm hearth.

No lounge is complete without comfortable seating and a fireplace! Both have been provided here. Located beside the living room, the lounge is a great place to hang out with family and friends or spend an evening relaxing in front of the hearth.

In summers, the balcony right next to the lounge can be a great place to enjoy beautiful weather and some fresh air.

A staircase with a twist.

A wooden staircase in the middle of the house adds a great deal of rustic appeal to the entire atmosphere. With glass railings and wooden steps, it is again a mix of both traditional and dynamic designs.

A bathroom to feel proud of.

This is one of the three bathrooms inside the house and looks so beautiful inside. The bathroom tiling idea is well thought of and makes the room look more spacious. It is a place to take long, luxurious showers in your years to come!
