Grade 2 Listed Residence
Grape Hill was one of Wil Onions last projects before he died and was completed posthumously in 1958. It is considered one of his best examples of hilltop cottage design with expansive water views to the south and has been designated a Grade 2 building of historic and cultural significance. A west wing had been added in 1977 based on Wil Onions original sketches as well as a new detached garage.
Our interior and exterior renovations during 2011 - 2012 sought to restore the look and feel of the historic character while creating free flowing spaces more suited to contemporary living and entertaining. The original south porch was replaced and extended to to connect into the open patio overlooking the south shore and the existing pool. A new back porch now elegantly connects the awkwardly situated garage and a new mechanical room under the patio tucks away all the mechanical equipment from in and around the house.
New finishes were applied to all interior and exterior areas including new kitchen and expansive mudroom cabinetry, new marble bathrooms, LED lighting and new timber windows.
