1001 McLaren Road, Perth K7H 3C5
Nestled on a wooded lot in BurgessWood, a community planned by Perth dentist Dr. Grover Lightford, you will find a unique stone home, carefully styled after a Quebec farm house. With soaring ceilings, and three large windows, the open living space affords views of the treed lot, and the busy bird feeders. Local artisans provided the carved stone bathroom sinks and blown glass kitchen lights, while other features such as the copper countertops and ripple glass kitchen cupboard doors came from abroad. The tranquil setting, with low maintenance landscaping, allows the natural vegetation to flourish.
