Victorian era home boasts ultra modern interior

Contributed by Kathy Flaxman – The third floor of the Cabbagetown home Lisa Zoppas shares with her husband and daughter features a light filled spa at one end, including a beautiful freestanding tub and extra large shower complete with rain showerhead and body jets and the master bedroom with southern exposure at the other end.
It’s not hard to see that light and storage were the two top priorities for Lisa when the recent renovations to the home were taking place.

 
A lovely Victorian era row house, the home’s interior is an example of modern design and comfort. “When we bought this home in 2011, it was a duplex and since then we’ve renovated three times,” Lisa notes. “Most recently we had Weenen General Contracting Limited do the two top floors.  We find a modern, more traditional look works well with our lifestyle,” she says. “We called them in to help us with a problematic leak and their response time and customer service were excellent.”

 
The tiling in the bathroom, in multi-hued shades of grey-blue and white, is an example of the excellent workmanship in the project. Adhering to the wall in a beautiful and complex diagonal pattern, the work is one hundred percent perfect. “That tiling is a good example of what was done throughout,’” Lisa says.  “Every detail is exactly to the letter of the architect Wanda Ely’s drawings and completely in accordance with any permit regulations and so on.  Everything was handled with the utmost professionalism.”
When you’ve had your roof redone twice, you value excellence and workmanship.  A home that is ultra modern and leaning towards traditional inside of a Victorian heritage style home, is something that a lot of consumers are choosing today.  “Victorian details are stunning,” Joe Rozman of Weenen General Contracting says.  “But the latest in contemporary comfort works well in rooms like bathrooms.” Happily, three year old daughter Hailey, whose own modest bathroom has a lovely assortment of rose coloured towels, is quick to point out that “Light and lots of cupboards are my favourite too!”
