1904

Welcome to Briarbrea!  This magnificent turn of the century designated heritage home was originally designed by renowned architect Francis Rattenbury in 1904, before being added to in 1913 by Samuel Maclure.

This project was tremendously rewarding to work on.  Our two phased approach allowed us to deliver exceptional results on both upper and lower floors, as well as on the stairs and landings.  We began by making key repairs to the existing Red Oak and Fir floors.  We brought in new long length Fir wood flooring that was picked specifically for its close match to the existing floors, helping to preserve the original character and look, and ensure a harmonious result. We provided dustless sanding to all the spaces and applied a high-traffic Waterbase Finish to the character floors, pairing existing old world charm with a modern touch.
