Natural design fits Wilden’s Clear Pond neighbourhood style

Natural design fits Wilden’s Clear Pond neighbourhood style
Wilden Clear Pond Model Home by AuthenTech Homes

A pleasing combination of timber, stone and shingle produces marked curb appeal in a dwelling that sits comfortably in a neighbourhood with strong natural values. The show-stopper entrance highlights a wooden door that appears to float in the full window wall. Shaded by heavy timber beams, the outdoor feature wall seamlessly flows into the foyer where the timber theme is echoed in the unique stairway design. The open concept plan of this 3,943 sq. ft. home with full basement by award-winning builder AuthenTech Homes is ideally suited to easy living and entertaining both indoors and out. Nine-foot ceilings, a 12-foot vault, incorporating the soaring geometric roofline over the great room, and an abundance of natural light create a strong impression of space. Hand scraped hardwood flooring unifies the main level living space. The gourmet kitchen, finished with dark stained cabinets, concrete countertops, a six-burner gas range and veggie prep sink in the island appeals to serious cooks and invites casual gathering. A soaring fireplace with lighted art nooks anchors the seating area while skylights and window walls give the dining nook a greenhouse feel and meld indoor and outdoor spaces. The stamped concrete patio features a covered outdoor kitchen and firepit.

Upper and main levels retain a sense of unity through the open stairwell and hallway overlooking the great room. Taking up the entire front of the house, the master suite dominates the three-bedroom layout. A two-sided fireplace block defines a separate sitting room, which opens onto a private deck for casual morning coffee. The spacious ensuite continues the home’s modern lines with sleek cabinetry and an enclosed soaker tub cube.

The home’s partial walk-out basement accommodates two more bedrooms. Climate control includes environmentally responsible geothermal heating and cooling.—Laurie Carter
