The model home in Glen Ashton Estates wins for Best Interior Merchandising

TORONTO, November 20, 2020 - Menkes is proud to share that The Livingston Model- part of its Low Rise residential project Glen Ashton Estates - has been honoured with an Award of Distinction by the West End Home Builders Association. The Livingston, which showcases a spectacular array of upgrades won in the category of Best Interior Merchandising- Model Home.

The Livingston Model, located in Glen Ashton Estates in the prestigious Joshua Creek neighbourhood in Oakville, was designed by talented Interior Designer Gordana Car. Car produced an awe-inspiring design for the Livingston Model. Inspired by a modern farmhouse look- a design which has proved to be appealing to many different types of buyers - the interior design combines the modern and contemporary, with the country chic.

“This farmhouse style is warm and cozy feeling, but has some high-fashion flare to it," says Car of the design. “For example, white oak herringbone floors are used whenever possible. They add that an additional dimension to regular hardwood floors. The striking staircase is another unique feature of the home. It’s white oak hardwood floor and pickets are painted in a black and white finish which really makes it pop. The staircase contains a two-storey high landing wall, as the perfect place to showcase wall art or a mirror. Fashionable yet timeless fixtures finish off this showstopping space.”

“We’re so proud to be a recipient of this award,” said Adam Menkes, Vice President of Low Rise residential for Menkes. This model really made a statement and gave buyers a glimpse of everything they could come to expect from Menkes as a builder and from a home in a prestigious neighbourhood. And of course, with the functional layout and design of the home, we aimed to cater to so many different types of buyers and families.”
