De­sir­ing a home of open lay­outs with gen­er­ous win­dows for views and nat­u­ral light that best cap­tures the coun­try liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, a part­ner­ship with Sar­tori Cus­tom Homes brought her vi­sion to light.

“I knew I wanted a blend of styles that would re­flect the home where I grew up in Que­bec City,” re­calls the lady of the house who had also lived in Scot­land, ad­mir­ing the old ar­chi­tec­ture and how it blended with mod­ern in­flu­ences.

De­signed by Dean Bot­tom­ley of Dean Thomas De­sign Group, with a West Coast Con­tem­po­rary de­sign in hand she ap­proached Dan Sar­tori. “I saw Dan’s home in Best Home Mag­a­zine and really liked the at­ten­tion to de­tail that was fea­tured and soon re­al­ized that we were like-minded in our at­ti­tudes about style and qual­ity.” Host­ing bright in­te­ri­ors with clean lines, a sooth­ing dé­cor emerged that was warm, not stark or cold, with abun­dant nat­u­ral wood fin­ishes.

Founded in 1973 by Dan’s fa­ther Alberto Sar­tori, their fo­cus still re­mains the same, one of sin­gu­lar care and at­ten­tion to de­tail with a few thought­fully ex­e­cuted builds per year. “Our phi­los­o­phy is to treat each home we build as it were our own and to man­age the projects per­son­ally—not to pass them on to site su­per­vi­sors,” ex­plains Pres­i­dent Dan Sar­tori, who was rec­og­nized as a fi­nal­ist for a 2017 Ova­tions Award in the Best Home cat­e­gory of $1.5 to $3 mil­lion.

Work­ing with the planned de­sign, Sar­tori’s per­son­al­ized touches emerged with the stair­case, ex­te­rior ma­sonry work, and the be­hind the scenes me­chan­i­cal sys­tem—the heart­beat of the home.
