Wasko Developments
spacious, gracious

his 3,400 sq. ft. dream home in Hunt Club green has a layout open enough to be considered airy but not so open that elegance and intimacy are sacrificed.

As you enter the foyer, you’ll be taken by the richness that oak flooring, glass transoms, french doors, and crown mouldings provide. The open living room has a 14-foot ceiling with crown mouldings and palladium window.  Across from the living room is the study with its built-in bookcases and lovely window seat.

One of the most outstanding features of this home is its beautiful staircase. It rises to an upper landing with a wall of windows that is large and bright enough to use as a reading nook or music corner.

To the left of the foyer is an elegant dining room that is enclosed on three sides and open with decorative columns on the fourth side.  Large windows adorn one wall, and crown moulding provides a sophisticated finish to the room.

The great room is placed across from the dining room and this position allows for easy flow when entertaining.

The stunning French country kitchen boasts bisque cabinets and dark oak flooring. A practical layout offers a great deal of cabinet space and lots of countertop, as well as a large granite-top island.  The eating area is set into a spacious hexagon with windows all around and an exquisite gas fireplace on one wall.  A powder room with a furniture style vanity, a generous walk-in closet and a roomy laundry room/mudroom complete the first floor.

The second floor of this home is as elegant as the first.  The front bedroom has a beautiful palladium window and each one of the four bedrooms has a large closet with wire shelving.  The master bedroom with a sumptuous ensuite is especially gracious.  It is the attention to detail that is an inherent part of the Wasko philosophy that sets a Wasko home apart.  In a tradition begun in 1956 by Bill Wako, and passed on to his son-in-law Peter McClure, president of Wasko Developments, the Wasko motto remains “builders of quality homes”.  With a Ontario New Home Warranty Excellent Rating, the 1998 ONHWP Service Excellence Award for Small Volume Builder – Southwestern Ontario, and several LHBA Awards of Excellence, Wasko Developments is also a proud member of the London Home Builders’ Association (Peter McClure served as president of the association for 1999).

Wasko is currently building in Cranbrook South and Hickory Woods in Westmount, Hunt Club green, Warbler Woods West and Richmond Hill and will soon be building in The Neighbourhoods of Sunningdale and the Uplands in north London.  As a management partner in Hazelden Homes, Wasko also has a presence building smaller custom homes in Hunt Club Phase II and Stoney Creek adjacent to Grenfell.
