This 'white house on the hill' was originally the isolation hospital for Waterloo Region in the early 20th century. The current owners in conjunction with Whitefish Architects and Evolve builders took the shell of this classic colonial and turned it into one of the most sustainable and modern homes in Kitchener Waterloo. A rear yard addition creates a new lower living room extension, while the remainder of the house is largely original in layout. The generous hallways are kept intact and uninterrupted, serving as both a reminder of the original function and a superb cross ventilation and natural lighting axis through the house. This is a home designed for efficiency and durability. The walls are super-insulated, with a 12 double stud assembly filled with water based Icynene spray foam. Windows are triple glazed fibreglass frame. Floors are a combination of refinished and new solid cherry, polished concrete for the basement level and entry area, and porcelain tile in the washrooms. The fireplace is finished with clay, and houses an ultra efficient sealed wood burning insert. Millwork is built of formaldehyde free plywood boxes with solid cherry fronts and tops. Using an ultra simple palette of wood and white, the house strives for simple, clean detailing which highlights the material itself rather than adding decoration. The neighbourhood is immensely transit friendly, walkable and geographically interesting. Backing Moses Springer Park but well above it for views and privacy. Walk to all 4 school boards- Public, Catholic, French Public and French Catholic. Great highschools, college and two world class universities accessible by foot or transit. Uptown Waterloo a 20 minute walk. Near a rink, community pool and so much more. This home is sure to please the most discerning buyer looking for an environmentally friendly non cookie cutter home. Showings by appointment. (id:48850)
