simple craftsman styled home
Located in sunny Kelowna (British Columbia) this small home demonstrates that you do not have to have a large home to feel spacious. With a traditional theme in mind the owners wanted a "craftsman Style" house which was light and spacious yet small in size.
The beautifully appointed kitchen is the heart and soul of this house. Inspired by the creative talents of the owner the kitchen forms the central meeting space of the house and is visually connected to the small sun room adjacent which in turn allows views from the kitchen to the exterior. Plenty of natural light from ample south facing windows as well as some carefully placed upper windows provides natural light early on in the day which we feel is so vital to a warm and comfortable home . V
arious patios provide space for relaxation at different times of the day offering either shade or sun as desired.The owner took charge of the landscaping - which is done in a natural way and is complete with delightful pond with bronze heron sculpture standing guard over the bubbling water.
The yard is well screened for privacy and the covered trellis ensure there are visual delights everywhere in this small and unique property.
