Karen and Bernie Gill's home in Port Elgin was specifically designed for their lifestyle and built three years ago by Snyder Construction.

The larger foyer opens through sliding glass doors into the open concept main floor living, dining and kitchen area of 1,694 square feet with a three-sided fireplace in the centre and ash hardwood flooring.

Also, on the main floor is a bath, den, master bedroom with ensuite and a small laundry room that exits into a two-car garage. An extra feature, is the large covered deck off the dining room and hall, while the master bedroom opens out to the uncovered part of the same deck. The deck itself overlooks the backyard that includes a kidney-shaped swimming pool.

Looking forward to the future, the Gill's also had the halls and doorways made extra wide to accommodate the possible contingency of a wheelchair.

On the lower level [basement] is a finished spacious entertainment area complete with fireplace, bar, pool table and exercise area in addition to two more bedrooms, bathroom, storage room and cold cellar. Both fireplaces also feature custom-made maple mantles.
