Returning to their roots just outside Penetanguishene, a retired couple was inspired by their love of all things British, and included a pub on the first floor of their new home.
 
The build by DAD’s Home Builders Ltd. in the Copeland Creek subdivision is impressive, featuring grey exterior stone and brick from Patene Building Supplies, which also played an important part in several interior features. The dark metal roof provides contrast to the masonry.
 
Adjacent to the home’s open-concept living area, the pub includes a pool table, bar, lots of British football memorabilia, a faux-British telephone box, a chandelier made from Jeeves and Wooster hats and a Union Jack flag adorning part of the ceiling.
 
A Valor gas fireplace from Home & Cottage Centre and imposing hearth from Northern Granite Works – which also provided the clean-looking quartz countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms – affords a cosy warm spot in the home’s spacious living room to enjoy a good book during those cool fall nights.
 
Northern Iron also had a steady hand in the overall project by providing many of the home’s unique design touches, from the one-of-a-kind bar and kitchen stools, false door hinges and knockers to shelf brackets, beautiful lighting and other special touches.
 
All trim and doors are from Barrie Trim and Mouldings. Paint throughout the home was purchased at Tripp’s Paint and Decorating ShoppeOther elements were sourced through Elmvale Home Building Centre, Simply Country, Bathworks and The Hive.
