Yacht’s Cove

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES -

In the midst of all this artistry — which in­cludes a great room with a jaw-drop­ping, ir­rides­cent porce­lain tile en­ter­tain­ment unit that oc­cu­pies an en­tire wall in the liv­ing room — is an in­te­rior de­sign that brings all the artis­tic touches to life. High ceil­ings, large win­dows and wide aisles com­bine with rich fin­ishes to pro­vide a main liv­ing area that’s both liv­able and lux­u­ri­ous.

“We went with 10-foot ceil­ings in the foyer, kitchen, din­ing room and liv­ing room to open things up that much more — the ex­tra ceil­ing height adds to an al­ready spa­cious in­te­rior feel. The home has a good flow and nice open feel — it’s de­signed for en­ter­tain­ing, so if you’re go­ing to en­ter­tain, you need space. Then, you place the artis­tic touches all around you,” says Vas­sallo.

While largely open-con­cept, the home also has its share of well-placed divi­sion. For ex­am­ple, Vas­sallo and his de­sign team de­cided to go with a sep­a­rate, en­closed din­ing room off the wide, an­gled foyer.

“You set the tone of the home from the foyer out, so we went with an ex­traw­ide foyer with an invit­ing en­trance that in­cor­po­rated porce­lain and hard­woods,” he ex­plains. “We then en­closed the din­ing room to set it apart from the kitchen. Hav­ing it en­closed also makes it a great flex room or den if you don’t want to use it as a din­ing room — all you have to do is put on the doors. There’s a large dinette area off the kitchen, so it doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily have to be a din­ing room.”

Mean­while, the secondary bed­rooms and mas­ter bed­room ex­ist in sep­a­rate wings, with the bed­room wing filled out by an el­e­gant four-piece bath and ex­pan­sive laun­dry/mud­room off the garage.

Then there’s the se­cluded mas­ter bed­room. While not ex­pan­sive as those found in larger KDR homes, it’s still spa­cious and no less lux­u­ri­ous.

“It has ev­ery­thing you need,” says Vas­sallo. “There’s am­ple room in the bed­room, and the en­suite comes with a cor­ner soaker tub, custom-tiled shower with glass door, beige porce­lain floor — and a big walk-in closet with a pi­ano win­dow to let in nat­u­ral light. The van­i­ties in both bath­rooms were also custom-de­signed, and the com­mon walls in the bath­room, laun­dry room and mas­ter suite are all sound­proof.”

Gina Somers, KDR’s sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive for 10 Yacht’s Cove, adds that the bun­ga­low — ideal for ei­ther empty nesters or young fam­i­lies — is not only log­i­cal in its de­sign, but is also very, very al­lur­ing.

“It’s warm, cozy and invit­ing home,” she says. “It fea­tures a great floor plan, is beau­ti­fully fin­ished and has a huge base­ment you can make your own. It has a lot go­ing for it on ev­ery level.”
