Gorgeous home on Bow Crescent - own a piece of history!
This stunning property was built in 2005 using the original blueprints of the Purcell Elmslie “Prairie School of Architecture - Purcell House” built in 1913 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The reason to recreate the “Purcell House” on Bow Crescent was to highlight this community's respect for nature.
The house is known for its innovative arrangement of space, organized on a single axis, open from one end to the other, evoking spaciousness. Its overall design and decoration emphasizes a clean, modern aesthetic staying in harmony with natural surroundings on Bow Crescent. The wall of glass windows connects the interior of the house to the outside.
The entry to the home radiates beauty, welcome and whimsy. The strikingly spacious and beautiful living room has three focal points – the large wood burning 50” fireplace, the writing/desk nook, and the 14-foot window seat that runs the width of the room. The window wall wraps around the front of the room, so that one feels enveloped by nature, an effect reinforced when the bottom casement windows are opened to outdoor sounds and scents.
Though open-plan, the first-level interior of the house features individual room areas by virtue of alterations in floor level and breadth of floor space, while the tented ceiling maintains the same height throughout. The effect of the main level’s design is to maintain intimacy within the larger space, while preserving unity between rooms and the openness of the entire floor.
The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream next to the extra-large dining room made for entertaining with easy access through two large windowed doors to the deck for outside dining and entertaining. The deck attached to the home with the extension of the roofline, further connecting the home to nature. The second floor is reached by a large wide stairway whose landing features another window wall providing a wraparound view. The master bedroom has a balcony, reading nook with a fireplace, bathroom, walk in closets and a doorway to the laundry room.
