A stunning home with tall ceilings and a unique floor plan that creates the perfect blend of farmhouse, modern and classic styles. The board and batten exterior accomplished the farmhouse style while the large dormers and gables added elegance. The custom layout features dual walk-in pantries, a guest suite and designer kitchen. The 4-car garage and the low light guiding down the stairs into the kitchen were purposeful. The ensuite features access to the laundry, in-floor heat and an electronic shower valve. Zoned heating adds natural comfort to the home, while a natural gas generator adds peace of mind. This 3789 square foot home turned vision into reality and was truly a labor of hard work and love. Congratulations, Spruce Homes for winning this year’s Best Custom Home over 3500 square feet! 🎉...#HousingExcellenceAwards #HousingExcellenceYXE #Saskatoon #SaskatoonandRegionHomeBuildersAssociation #HomeBuildersAssociation #SRHBA #CertifiedProfessionalHomeBuilder #HomeBuilder #CustomHome #NewHome #CustomDesign #CustomBuild #ModernHomeDesign #YXE #YXEHomes ...

The Great Room is the main focal point, with 16’ high ceilings, a glass wall and perimeter windows above. A stone fireplace with oak slat wall and natural wood floors brings in the warmth, while the open concept kitchen includes a large working island, and a side coffee bar. The outdoor space and covered deck shelter the outdoor kitchen and dining space, while the shared open-air lounge with gas fire table has direct access from the master bedroom.
