Glencoe Design/Build House
The owners of this Glencoe property hired Canada & Klein to design/build a large, luxurious, traditionally designed yet energy efficient and healthy family home. The Canada & Klein design team produced a home rich in classic North Shore Colonial style. Its Georgian Adam exterior is a fine example of the style. The typical floor plan was enhanced for today’s family.
