Inside and down a hallway, the rear of the house is organized in an open plan layout, with the living room, dining area, and kitchen all sharing the same space.

The living room takes advantage of the white walls by placing a large colorful abstract art piece above the couch, while three metallic pendant lights hang above a plant on a plant stand.

Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen, where blue cabinets have been combined with marble, to create a modern and eye-catching kitchen.

Folding doors connect the interior spaces of the house with a wood deck, creating an indoor / outdoor living environment.

The deck provides direct access to the yard, and from the lawn, you can see the second story of the house.

The gable roof form, left over from a previous renovation in the 90’s, was retained but extended over the balcony as a pergola to allow plants to eventually grow over and soften the facade.

Back inside, and there’s a bright white bathroom where white picket tiles cover the walls. The laundry is hidden away in wood cabinets opposite the vanity, while in the shower, there’s a floor-to-ceiling window with views of a tiny garden at the side of the house.

Upstairs, there’s a bedroom that opens up to the balcony with views of the backyard. Louvre windows allow the movement of air even when the door’s closed.
