With the right home renovation, you can walk to the ‘cottage’

In an era where time is a luxury, many people are finding the long commute and the additional maintenance of owning a cottage to be less luxurious than expected. In fact, more and more people are seeking to escape in their own home after a long week at work.

Lifestyles by Barons has been creating luxurious homes for their clients over the years where the main goal is to transform indoor and outdoor spaces into escapes from the stressful everyday life.

When taking on a full home renovation project, Lifestyles by Barons strives to tie the inside of the home to the outside and vice versa. The goal is to use materials, colours and styles that join the two and then ensure that everything blends in with the surroundings.

At their “Hoover” project, the strategic design was to extend the interior living space to the outdoors for entertaining, as well as creating a backyard oasis for the homeowners to enjoy all year round.

The first step was to add a greater number of windows and doors to the back of the home and to increase the size of these openings. The result is that a once dark home that was visually cut off from the exterior, is now a home that includes a tremendous amount of natural light throughout the day and provides full panoramic views of the entire gorgeous backyard.

The second step was to ensure that the new space was functional and provided the family with various areas that met each of the family member’s individual needs and still provided a large communal space for entertaining. Off the main kitchen is a kitchenette and a powder room that doubles as a dressing room. Both of these rooms service the pool and exterior eating areas ensuring that no little wet feet trample through the main home. Outside, the backyard now boasts a large multi-level deck with defined spaces for entertaining such as a dining area, a sit-down conversation area, hot tub area, outdoor kitchen, lounge and cabana. The cabana itself has multiple uses including storage, bar area, outdoor entertainment area and encompasses a fireplace sit-down area for those cooler evenings. By placing all of the pool equipment behind the structure, the cabana has become fully functional and the machinery does not overheat the interior space, in turn, extending the pool equipment life.

In order to increase the functionality and extend the usability of the backyard throughout the seasons, Lifestyles by Barons built with materials that are largely maintenance-free solutions such as composite decking and natural stone surfaces. Enhancing the comfort of the backyard are three fully automated pergolas that, with a simple press of a button, regulate light from the sun in the summer or protect from the elements such as rain. In the fall and winter the homeowners have full access to their hot tub, which is only steps from the main kitchen garden doors and that, in the summer, overlooks the swimming pool ensuring that all guests have a full view of the majority of the backyard.

To further enhance the functionality and beauty of the new backyard spaces, custom exterior furniture was carefully selected to create the right focal points for a quiet retreat or large entertaining. Equally as important, the lighting was carefully designed to highlight specific details and create a certain mood. At night the Hoover backyard takes on a dreamy and romantic ambiance that, when combined with the outdoor sound system, can quickly transform to festive, when entertaining guests.

Forget the long stressful commutes and relax, swim, entertain, escape without leaving the comfort of your own home.

The Hoover project – a peek inside a luxury home

Latest News


The Hoover project – a peek inside a luxury home

Unique to Lifestyles by Barons is the Tour of Homes program that showcases a client’s recently renovated luxury home to prospective clients each year. This is a chance to experience first-hand the quality and latest in home design. The tour illustrates the trusted relationship formed with each client as they proudly exhibit their new breathtaking dream home to the viewing public, highlighting design, craftsmanship and quality of materials.

Toured homes are typically full-home projects that demonstrate a variety of different spaces, which include: Gourmet kitchens, serveries, great rooms, elegant home theatres, spa bathrooms, dressing rooms, exterior living and more. When making one of the biggest investments for your home, it is crucial that you trust the design-build firm to deliver your dream home. The Tour of Homes program offers full transparency and displays the trust and commitment that they have with their clients every step of the way.

The most recent Tour of Homes was the Hoover project. Here are a few highlights and key design elements that transitioned this “builder grade” home to a truly unique custom home.

An escape in your own home – the Master Wing

In a world where it is ever increasingly hard to disconnect, we seek to retreat, to the comfort of our own home. A dark and depressing loft bedroom was transformed into the master wing at the Hoover project, delivering a peaceful sanctuary for the homeowner. This space features a multitude of design elements such as: Master lounge with soundproofing to block the world out, a dressing room to prepare for the challenges of the day, master bedroom complemented with vaulted ceilings and skylights to let natural light in, a balcony that seamlessly integrates the exterior with the comfort with the interior, and finally a spa bathroom experience.

Relaxation and comfort should be integrated into daily life and not reserved just for weekends. The master wing of the Hoover project allows the homeowner to take refuge in their own space. To maximize relaxation, the spa bathroom offers a multitude of features including: Steam shower with chromatherapy, steam therapy, sound therapy, aroma therapy, and heated natural pebble flooring to truly immerse the user. In short, taking a shower has now been transformed into an experience like no other, being able to see, smell, hear and feel the ocean right in your home. The master wing design offers a truly breathtaking experience to prepare you for, or to relieve you from your daily challenges.

Seamless luxury and functional open-concept design

Esthetics should never be compromised when delivering functionality. The Hoover project displays a multitude of design features that integrate both functionality and beauty.

Highlights of the gourmet kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home and often the space where you spend most of your time. The Hoover gourmet kitchen has been outfitted with an extensive and bright window package impeccably uniting the interior with the outdoors. This space is supported with an English pantry that provides more capacity than the entire kitchen combined, which allows more guests to mingle in the space without feeling confined with clutter. The open-concept design of the kitchen flows smoothly to the Great Room and the servery with no walls or barriers that would confine your guests and family.

We continue this journey as the open-concept design transitions to the basement and offers a fully functional space that includes a bar, home theatre, and billiards. All of which maintain the same quality of materials, style, and craftsmanship as the rest of the home.
