This Hollybrook Trail townhome in Kitchener by Ridgeview Homes showcases the builder's luxury standards. The sought-after neighbourhood is located near the ponds, creeks and woodlands of the nearby Doon Creek natural area. With walking trails and quick access to Highway 401, it’s an ideal place for the whole family to enjoy. 
Luxury inclusions begin with all-brick exteriors with complementary stone accents, concrete driveways, ample exterior pot lights, fully-insulated carriage-style garage doors and coordinating craftsman-style entry doors by Golden Windows Limited.
The open-concept, main-floor living space in this model townhome is coastally inspired. Soft grey hues include Touch of Grey from Dulux, with hints of glass, silver fixtures and décor accents inspired by nature. The great room’s floor-to-ceiling shiplap fireplace surround creates the wow factor in the bright space.
In the kitchen, a lovely glass mosaic backsplash and shaker-style cabinets are painted Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore. Wide plank, natural oak hardwood floors and 24-by-24-inch Carrara-marble-inspired ceramic tiles add to the appeal. A structural ceiling beam clad in grey-washed, reclaimed barn wood cleverly divides the kitchen from the great room and enhances the seaside feel of the space. The beam mimics the linear fireplace’s floor-to-ceiling surround.
Light streams into the spacious master bedroom through multiple oversize windows. The warm wood tones give the room a relaxing sophisticated and chic feel; a hideaway nook nearby is the ideal spot for a small workspace or sitting area.
Design choices are made by purchasers during one-on-one consultations with the team of New Home and Renovation Designers at Design Palace, launched in 2015 by Ridgeview Homes. Inspired by the builder’s success with modern contemporary design and conceived with the customer experience in mind, Design Palace pairs a distinct showroom featuring the latest trends in new home construction and building materials with a highly skilled team of diverse talents.
