Through the front entryway, a private front den with an oversized window and custom built-ins is tastefully separated from the dining room and rear living spaces by a sliding barn door and a floor-to-ceiling glass panel.
At the center of it all, the kitchen features custom-built cabinetry by Blum, upgraded stainless steel appliances, waterfalled quartz countertops, and a modern tile backsplash. The oversized island offers bar seating for everyday dining, in addition to the formal seated dining room which has space for a larger table.
At the rear of the home, the open-concept kitchen/dining/living room is ideal for entertaining, or easily accommodates families with kids. Highlighted by windows on two sides, the bright living room centers on a gas fireplace with a solid granite surround and custom built-ins on both sides. The beautiful West backyard is accessible through sliding glass doors that lead to the rear yard which hosts a gas line for a BBQ or outdoor heater.
Rounding out the main floor, the 2-piece powder room is discretely tucked away from the main living areas and accessed through the tiled rear mudroom. The mudroom conveniently offers a built-in bench and custom cabinets with hooks and shelving to keep things organized.
Upstairs, three large bedrooms plus two full bathrooms and a huge laundry room easily accommodate family life. The luxurious master suite features soaring vaulted ceilings, a large window and a massive walk-in closet with custom built-in shelving and drawers.

About ICF Construction
WHAT IS ICF?
ICF stands for “insulated concrete forms”. Basically, these are cast-in-place concrete forms used to build exterior walls (or the interior party wall of a duplex) of a house. The forms consist of approximately 3” of foam held apart with plastic webs used to stabilize the foam forms and support interior rebar during concrete pouring. Each side of the form, which will ultimately be the interior and exterior of the walls, consists of an insulating material. The final product is a home that looks like a traditional home, but its exterior structure is of a vastly more durable material possessing a significantly high thermal mass and resistance to heat loss.
BENEFITS OF ICF?
1) Energy Efficiency – ICF wall systems are a very energy efficient wall system. Not only do the walls possess a high “r” value (depending on the manufacture and the application), anywhere from r23-r30, the walls also have a very tight air seal, helping to reduce the energy loss associated with air infiltration and exfiltration. Homes built with ICF walls require about 44% less energy to heat and 32% less energy to cool than a comparable wood-frame house, based on a study of single family homes located throughout the US and Canada – according to ConcreteNewtwork.com
2) Strength & Durability – ICF wall systems are rated to withstand extreme weather conditions, including tornados and hurricanes and can be engineered for all seismic conditions. In addition, they are rated safe for earthquake zones (up to zone 4) and will not rot or mould. ICF systems can resist fires for up to four hours.
3) Acoustic Benefits – ICF wall systems decrease the amount of sound that comes in from the outside by over half, and is consequently one of the quietest building materials on the market.
4) Cleaner Air – ICF systems prevent draft and air infiltration, meaning they prevent airborne contaminants from entering the building. This is great for a homeowner because not only does it reduce allergens but dust, as well.
5) Environmentally Friendly – Aside from ICF reducing energy consumption due to heating and cooling, ICF systems also help to reduce overall construction waste, as every form will remain on the home or building. There is very little construction waste resulting from this system as the modular nature of the product allows for smaller pieces to be used again in other parts of the project.
