Jason Fabbian, owner of Gemini Homes in Guelph, purchased several lots in the Heritage Lake Estates site in Puslinch several years ago. There was one special spot on the lake that called to him and he knew then that he would build his own home there one day.
Personal touches are infused throughout the home. To the left of the entry is the parlour, Jason’s favoured evening retreat, where he can enjoy a cigar or a taste of Scotch. Custom mahogany millwork in both the parlour and office was stained on site by Sunridge Painting. A Crema Marfil marble floor in the foyer was polished on site by Ceramic Decor.
In the great room, the warmth of the wood firre makes it a cosy spot to play with children and entertain friends. Station Earth Total Home Technologies integrated the home technology during the planning phase of construction.
One of the mirrors flanking the fireplace disguises a television.
In the kitchen, French country cabinetry, painted a warm mocha, provides ample storage for cookware and dishes. The island is finished in walnut with an end grain butcher block top. The periphery counters are granite, speckled with titanium, sourced at Graniteworx.
The master bedroom feels like a suite in a grand hotel. The elegant king-size bed could be looking out onto any European vista. The master en suite is the star with bath fittings from The Ensuite. Tile from Ceramic Decor, dark grey with a bronze and metallic accent, grounds the space. Glamorous his-and-hers walk-in closets complete the suite. Special cabinetry was designed with glass-fronted doors to showcase Jason's wife Taunya's wedding dress.
