The challenge of buiding a "forever home" can be daunting, but not for this young Windsor-area couple. Their vision carried them through every stage of the process. 

Choosing a builder was one of the keys to such a successful outcome and Marcovecchio Construction Ltd. more than lived up to expectations.
They made most decisions about their charming four-bedroom, 3,500 sq. ft. home themselves, but sought input from designer Jodi Mason of Urban Home to refine details and add final touches. From the gracious foyer to the spectacular master bedroom suite, Jodi and Urban Home designer Philip Chouinard made sure every detail and design choice works perfectly with the others.
The light-filled foyer with cream porcelain tiles from Palazzi Bros. Tile & Granite opens up to the great room. Inside is one of the most dramatic architectural features in the home: a two-storey, grey and cream stone fireplace wall. “We really like having a double-sided fireplace (Life Styles by the Fire Box),” say the homeowners. “It draws you into the home but also creates a feeling of separation that we really like.”
The custom kitchen by BetterMade Cabinets offers double islands as well as an eating area. The homeowners love to cook and love to entertain. Lower cabinets are in a dark cherry wood that coordinates with a stunning range hood and server. 
But for sheer glamour and “boudoir bling” it would be hard to surpass the master bedroom en suite. “We wanted a feature wall,” they say. Jodi helped choose the diamond-shaped marble tile that is inset with crystal, as well as the elegant accessories and dressing table area with acrylic chair. The master bedroom looks out an oversize window onto the pool and serves as a reminder of all the fun the couple had during their first summer in the home. A side door provides a walkout to a perfect jewel of a sitting area, which is a favourite spot for coffee in warmer weather.
