Project description

This family home is the essence of what Creek Stone is all about. Bring the old to life again, preserve what can be saved to reduce waste and cost, highlight its history and bring back some old school charm in a modern and relevant way.


Creek Stone enjoys the challenge of finding solutions for existing issues older homes typically posses. The home was originally built as a granary in the 1950’s, it was then converted into a handyman’s special, ranch style, 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom home.  Creek Stone purchased the property in 2017 and completely renovated it adding a 700 SQ FT addition to create a stunning 2 story, 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom family home. Transitioning from a granary, to a handyman home that was severely structurally compromised, to the beautiful structure it is currently was a challenge. Extensive due diligence was completed to ensure that all construction was done correctly and efficiently. Safety, building and energy codes were all brought up to todays standards. It was paramount to keep the integrity of the old structure while establishing continuity between old and the new. Creek Stone embraced revitalizing not only the home but the street and community as well.


A grand custom milled cedar craftsman fence surrounds the large property and compliments the welcoming patio which wraps around the front of the house. As you enter the home the beautiful custom fireplace draws you in to an open concept living room, dining area and kitchen. The chefs kitchen features custom cabinetry, open cedar shelving, lavish island and high-end appliances complete with an Aga range. Shiplap encases the vaulted ceiling and compliments the beautiful 15 ft brick feature wall which frames an exquisite mono staircase with custom horizontal iron railing and hardwood treads. The stairs lead you to an open lounging area as well as a magnificent master bedroom, huge ensuite and walk-in closet. There are three additional bedrooms on the main floor along with a full bath, mudroom and laundry room with plenty of storage forming an extremely functional space. Plenty of organic elements throughout the home are complimented by different textures contributing to its warmth. The homes distinct details reveal a modern farmhouse design with old school craftsmanship. Intentionally designed as a place for the family to gather and make lasting memories.
