Each year, as we visit the CHEO Minto Dream Home, we wonder how it can get any better and the team that pulls it all together always keeps us wondering how the next year will be able to top it.
The homes are filled with the stuff that lifestyle dreams are made of. This year a slick red Chevy Camaro is parked in the driveway and is part of the $1.7 million prize package. The well-organized garage by Ottawa Garage Makeovers is dreamy but then once inside dreams turn into fantasies! Who hasn't fantasized about having a full bar, entertainment room and hockey rink in the basement?
Is a gourmet kitchen on your wish list? Thanks to Potvin Kitchen and Bath the slick styling has just enough tradition to inspire some customary cooking in a space that calls for entertaining in style.
The bedrooms are all decorated in restful shades of greys and taupes with just the right dose of pattern and colour. Furnishings from La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries are showcased beautifully within Minto's Cedar model in the Mahogany community in Manotick. The 5,035 square foot home has a cool, contemporary vibe with an open staircase (Ottawa Classic Stairs & Bannisters) in the entry but styling turns to the warmth of the Arts & Crafts style architecture to create a dream space executed by the Kiss Design Group.
