Set at the apex of a tight corner along a street lined with historical and stately Victorian homes in downtown Port Hope, this steep ravine site had never been developed. The design for the home began with a desire to preserve a direct view to the ravine for the community to continue to enjoy as they traveled along the street into the centre of town; even with the presence of a building on the site.
Situated on a uniquely long lot for the city of Toronto, this new home is designed for generous indoor and outdoor living for a busy family of five. The ground floor is separated into two zones which flow around a skylight-lit stair in the centre of the house. Facing the street is a formal entertaining area with refined details and finishes. The private family zone, located two steps down at the backyard level, breaks away from formality, for every day living. Long views through the house on either side of the stair bring cohesion to the plan.
