The Place

A modern 4,000-square-foot home near the desired Wortley Village district. This three-bedroom, four-bathroom house has a distinct angular façade and a minimalist interior.

The History

In 2013, the sellers bought the property then tore down the two-bedroom bungalow that sat on the lot. In 2014, they enlisted local architect John Doe of Architects R Us to design and build a new home. The jagged shape of the façade and windows, along with the split-level interior, were inspired by the irregular shape of the lot, which is square in the front and angled in the backyard. With the youngest of their two children now in grad school, the sellers are retiring and moving to the Grand Bend area.

Big Selling Point
